Dear Allen Families,
As we embark on the second full week of the school year, we continue to be working to get to know our students and individuals and as learners. This week we will take the NWEA assessments to help us glean a snapshot of student proficiencies and areas of focus. Classroom teachers will share with you the days your students will be taking these assessments.
This communication will cover the following topics:
Drop off Reminders
Please drop your children off as close to the arrival bell as possible, which is 8:45 a.m. Adult supervision does not begin until 8:40 a.m. If you must arrive early, you must wait with your child(ren) until building staff arrive at each door location to supervise.
If you are in a vehicle and must arrive early, pull all the way forward in the drop off lane and do not leave gaps between vehicles unless you are blocking an open parking space. Please have your students exit your vehicle at the Flagpole area, not at the Great Room doors.
If you are using the Driveline lane, children need to open and close the car door on their own as well as buckle and unbuckle themselves. If you need to get out to assist your child with either of these, you will need to park in the parking lot, or on a neighboring street and walk your child to the building instead of using the drop-off lane.
Lost and Found Items
We are starting to accumulate Lost and Found items. It is very helpful if you label all of your child’s personal belongings with first and last name, especially water bottles and reusable lunch containers, so we can get them back to their owner. If you are interested in purchasing premade labels, you can visit Mabel's Labels. These labels don’t wear off and a portion of the proceeds supports Allen Elementary school.
