Alameda school tours will begin soon. Tours are about 30 minutes and prospective parents will get a chance to walk through the building and ask questions. Tours do not usually include visits to classrooms as we try and protect learning and teaching time whenever possible. You do not need to reserve a spot. Just show up on a date listed for a tour. Tours will only be given during the time slots that are reserved for tours, please check in with the office upon arrival to attend a tour.
In case you missed it in your inbox, we are providing a copy of the letter principal Lurie sent to our community today.
Welcome to Alameda! Alameda is a diverse learning environment in which its members are committed to meeting the educational, social, emotional and physical needs of all students in accordance with current practices, regardless of background or ability. This environment will stress academic excellence in a context of cultural enrichment and competency as well as community involvement. All stakeholders – students, staff and community will feel valued and involved in the learning process.
Raddy Lurie, Principal
I am so thrilled to join the Alameda community this year. Before Alameda I was at King Pre-K through 8 and previously ACCESS Academy. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your students. Please do not hesitate to stop me and say hello. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to say hello.
Thank you for welcoming me to your school.

On Wednesday, students across the nation chose to speak out on the issue of school safety. In many school communities, students observed a moment of silence and walked out of class to give voice to their thoughts and feelings. We should all listen.The horrific mass shootings that have taken student lives in recent years have provoked an incredibly important dialogue and created a valuable “teachable moment” for all of us.
