• Face coverings at AESD: Alhambra Elementary School District will continue to require cloth face coverings at school facilities, on school buses, and while participating in school activities at all times until further notice. 

    Levels of Risk within the Alhambra community are based upon an analysis of weekly County data specific to the Alhambra community, combined with AESD trends.

     AESD COVID-19 Dashboard

    The purpose of this information is to provide families, staff members, and our community with a transparent summary of COVID-19 cases by school, resulting in temporary removal from in-person learning and school activities. 

    • An active case indicates that a student or staff member participating in on-campus activities has tested positive for an active COVID-19 infection. 
    • Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any in-person/ on-campus activity until the school verifies that the individual meets the return criteria set by the state and local health authorities. 
    • Once an individual is cleared to return, the case is no longer considered active and is removed from the dashboard count.

Active COVID-19 case(s)
  • The communication regarding a positive COVID-19 is handled within guidelines that protect the privacy of students and staff. AESD works closely with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) to track/confirm COVID-19 cases and conduct contact tracing. 

    Schools will communicate in the following ways: 

    • The school will notify every person that has been identified to have been in "close contact" with the positive individual. 
      • Close contact is defined as, being within six feet for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more, over a 24-hour period (MCDPH). Any student or staff member deemed to have been in close contact with the positive individual may be required to stay home for 10 days from the exposure date. 
    • The school will communicate with the families of students who are identified as "close contacts" of someone who is COVID-19 positive. 
    • The school will communicate with all families if there is an outbreak of COVID-19. 
      • MCDPH classifies an outbreak as at least two COVID-19 cases linked to students or staff who have been in close contact within the school within a 14-day period.
