Demolition began on Lum Elementary School this week. As a reminder, geotechnical experts and structural engineers deemed the site unsafe in 2017 when they discovered that the soil was more highly liquifiable than previously believed, and its slab foundations would not be adequate in a strong earthquake.

Please note that the playground next to Lum will also close this week, due to its proximity to the construction site.

Once the buildings have been removed, a temporary campus (with appropriate foundations) will be built on the site to house first Wood students (while their new campus is being built) and then Otis students (while their new main building is being constructed). Following that, AUSD plans to build a multi-sport athletic field for AHS on the site.

Staff and contractors at Lum are following all rules and regulations for hazards abatement, monitoring, and notifications, and the waste materials will be sorted, recycled, and disposed of according to local policies.

Happy Halloween Alameda! A reminder to please drive carefully around our neighborhoods tonight as there will be huge crowds of witches, goblins, fairies, princesses, ghosts, ninjas, mummies, butterflies, and super heroes dashing excitedly from house to house.

Also, parents, please check your children's candy! After a recent Halloween event at an AUSD school, six families reported finding cannabis-infused fruit chews in their children's candy collections. Alameda Police Department is investigating; in the meantime, be sure to check all the candy your children bring home.

The Supreme Court of California has refused to review the Court of Appeal’s recent opinion holding that AUSD’s Measure A parcel tax is legal and valid. The denial means that this measure can no longer be challenged, and the district can continue to use the revenue raised to support AUSD’s high-quality schools.

How likely is there to be a nearby earthquake with a magnitude of at least 6.7 (fallen buildings, broken gas and water lines, fires) in the next 30 years?
