Coronavirus Update 59 - New Testing Info, Published September 24, at 2:24 p.m.


Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community, 


While students are not in school today, our staff is immersed in imagining, inquiring, and inspiring through our district-wide Staff Development Day. These professional development days allow the opportunity for our staff to collaborate with their colleagues and peers, hone their craft, and continue to find ways to better educate and support our students and families. We appreciate your flexibility and support for these days that are so important for our team. 


Today’s Update has some new information regarding our free COVID-19 testing program and other helpful information and reminders regarding other free testing and vaccines available in L.A. County, including additional COVID-19 links and resources and information. 


AUSD COVID-10 Testing Changes

We are pleased to still be able to provide free testing and support through our district for all students and staff for optional free weekly testing. (Please note that free testing is not available to parents and families.)


This week, we are pleased to announce that starting on Monday, September 27, we will be offering an additional option for student COVID-19 testing. Students may now test in person at the COVID-19 testing center at the Arcadia Education Center (AEC). In order to facilitate this on-site testing, the test center will be moving from the AEC lobby to the courtyard on the north side of the building. Signs in front of the AEC will lead to the location of the new outdoor testing center. Please note that in addition to this new option for in-person testing, students and staff may still request a take-home test kit.


Arcadia Unified COVID-19 Testing Center

150 S. 3rd Ave

Arcadia, CA 91006


The testing center is open from 7:30am-4:30pm Monday through Friday. Tests must be completed or dropped off by 4:00pm to be included in that day’s courier service to the lab for processing.


Free Vaccines Available 

Please remember, individuals are only considered to be fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second and/or the final dose of a vaccine series.


HCHC is continuing its vaccination clinics at its new health center location:  

3401 Aerojet Ave. El Monte, CA 91731

-Both Pfizer (Ages 12+) and Moderna (Ages 18+) are offered at no cost and no appointment required (walk-ins accepted)

-Tuesday thru Friday: 9 AM - 12:30 PM


L.A. County continues to offer vaccines at many different sites across the county to make it as easy as possible for eligible L.A. County residents to get vaccinated. Anyone 12 and older living or working in L.A. County can get vaccinated against COVID-19. Many vaccination sites across the county, including all the County-run sites, are also offering third doses of the vaccine to eligible immunocompromised people. Vaccinations are always free and open to eligible residents and workers regardless of immigration status.

Reminder: Arcadia Unified is Hiring and Sub Pay Increases!

We have a couple of new job opportunities available since our last Update.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has caused a nationwide staff shortage that includes substitute teachers. We remain excited to share that we have increased our pay rate for substitute teachers to $200 per day for the remainder of the school year!
