LVJUSD 2021-2022 Calendar 

Wildcat Welcome: A Walk-Through Experience!
Thursday, August 19th
2:00 - 6:00 pm

This year we welcome all wildcat families to join us on the Altamont Creek Elementary Campus for a fun walk-through event. This event will provide an opportunity to tour the campus, purchase swag, register for Running Club, join the PTA, get official classroom assignments, and more! There will be a fun activity for all of our wildcats, with a special prize from the principal once they've completed the activity.

This is an outdoor-only event.  Reservations are not needed; just stop by at your convenience. Per LVJUSD and Alameda County health protocols, masks are encouraged while outdoors, but not required, in order to attend the event. We do ask that you please stay socially distanced when possible.  Please note these protocols could change at any time prior to the event.

We cannot wait to welcome our wildcats back on campus for the 2021-2022 school year!

The school office is now open! Our hours are from 9AM-4PM (closed 12 -1 for lunch).  Regular hours will begin August 16th.

2 – Walkers/Walking Buses – We HIGHLY encourage our students to walk to school. It promotes health and is great for our environment. Please arrange an off campus meeting space to meet your child after school. The field is a great place to socially distance AND be able to quickly meet your Wildcat right after school.
