Drinking Water Assessment Results Reveal Safe Limits

Dear Families,

AUSD has partnered with ACC Environmental Consultants and EBMUD to test the water at drinking fountains and faucets in its facilities.  I want to take this opportunity to let you know about the results of those tests, as well as the steps taken to address them.

The consultants collected two samples from each of 29 locations at Wood Middle School: a “first-draw” sample (after the fountain hadn’t been used for at least 8 hours) and a “post-flush” sample (after the fountain had been running for at least 30 seconds).

Both the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of California set “action levels” for lead at 15 parts per billion (PPB). An “action level” is the threshold at which action must be taken to ensure potable status.

Of the 58 samples collected at Wood, all but one showed concentrations of lead below the action level. The sample from the fountain in Room 209 showed a first-draw concentration of 70 PPB and a post-flush concentration of <5 PPB. That faucet has now been disconnected, and district staff are working to identify the source of the problem.

I have attached a copy of chart that shows the lead concentration at each of our fountains for both samples. You can find the full report, along with additional information about the testing program, on the AUSD website (

Please let me know if you have further questions, and I will do my best to get the answers.

Transportation Drop-Off and Pick-up Considerations

The safety of all our students is our priority


Drop off considerations:

  • For the safety of our students we will allow just one line of cars to enter the curve during drop off time, please contemplate to come earlier to avoid tardiness.
  • Pull up as FAR as you can to avoid disrupting the entire flow
  • Remind your children to be ready BEFORE you enter the drop off zone, taking too much time really impacts the flow of the traffic. If your child is not ready please go to the END of the line to avoid upsetting other parents.
  • To help ease the traffic congestion at the start  of the school day, we suggest arranging a drop off and pick location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (Like Lum school)Wood
  • Be considerate and safe don’t  drop off your child in the middle of the road  

Pick up Considerations:

  • Be a role model for your child by following traffic and parking regulations. Be kind to our volunteers and other drivers.
  • Pay attention don’t stop the flow of the traffic waiting for your children
  • To help ease the flow of traffic and our disable students please do not park on blue or white zones during pick up time.
  • For the safety of your children please don’t allow them to enter the car in the middle of the road.
  • We suggest arranging a pick up location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (Like Lum school) of Wood
  • Become a volunteer and help us to direct traffic ones a week or every day.
