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.

PPS Bond project work is continuing on many fronts.
Water quality teams have replaced water fixtures in the first group of 15 schools and are now retesting the water for each school. When the water test results show that the quality of the water coming from the drinking faucets is better than the EPA recommendations for schools they are turned back on. The water is now flowing again at Astor, Chapman, Hayhurst, Richmond, Sacajawea, Skyline, Woodstock and West Sylvan.
In case of a fire, students know to evacuate the building at their teacher’s direction. In case of an earthquake, students know to brace themselves under their desks and protect their heads and necks. But what happens after those events? What happens if a school crumbles or burns, leaving students and staff without a way to contact parents and families?
Last week, Capitol Hill Elementary School attempted to answer those exact questions.
