    Dear Allen Families,

    We’d like to acknowledge Yom Kippur which is the holiest day in Judaism. It is a day marked by prayer and fasting. For our families that celebrate, tzom kal.

    This communication will cover the following topics:

    • Early Release - September 27th
    • Student Cell Phones and Smart Watches 
    • My Future Fund 
    • News from the Art, Library, and Spanish Teachers 
    • District Calendar and Important Dates
    • Community Updates
    • Parent Council Updates

    Early Release - September 27th

    Our first early release day of this school year is this Wednesday, September 27th. This year, the elementary schools release at 1:00 PM. The kids will have lunch, and buses will run right after the bell rings at 1:00 PM. There are no after school activities on early release days.

    Student Cell Phones and Smart Watches 

    If students have a cell phone with them at school, they are to leave their cellphone in their backpack on silenced mode or turned off.  If they have a smart watch, they should not use their smart watch to communicate with others. The office phone is the required method for communication between students and their families. Please call the office phone (734-997-1210) if you need to get a hold of your student. If your student needs to get a hold of you, we will have them communicate with you from a school phone. 

    My Future Fund 

    If your student is in 2nd-6th grades, be sure to complete the My Future Fund Release of Information Form by October 6, 2023. This is a FREE program for our students to get a jump-start on saving for college and career training. Most students will be automatically enrolled* unless you opt out. And some students may be eligible for an additional $475 based on family income.  

    Please, visit for more info. If you have any questions about My Future Fund you can contact My Future Fund at or by calling (734) 302-2626.   

    *Students who are on the district’s directory information opt out list will need to complete the Release of Information form in order to receive an account. 

    What’s next?

    Be on the lookout later this year for the login information for your students’ My Future Fund Account!
