    Dear Allen Families,

    As shared in the district communication on Friday, we will remain in virtual learning on Monday, January 10th.  We plan to return to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 11th. We may, at times, need to transition to virtual learning, and therefore will be asking all students to bring their Chromebooks back and forth from school to home on a daily basis.  Moving forward, transition decisions will be made on a classroom, grade level, and school-by-school basis, based on: 

    • the ability to staff schools for in-school learning, supervision of students and safe in-school operations, 
    • high numbers of positive COVID-19 cases within a given classroom or school, and 
    • guidance by Washtenaw County Health Department (WCHD) in response to a COVID outbreak situation. 

    Please note: There may be days when the district is required to modify operations, such as suspending some transportation routes. 

    We are monitoring staff illness and attendance around the clock to determine the viability to appropriately staff our school and support operations and to notify our staff, students, and parents as early in the process as possible. 

    While we work to notify parents as soon as we possibly can, these situations can at times change rapidly. We will continue to do everything we can to achieve in-school learning and to communicate often.

    At Allen, we continue to be impacted by the staffing challenges and are in need of noon-hour supervisors.  Custodial staff is also needed across the district, and all other job postings can be found listed at the following:

    If you need technical assistance, the student and family help desk remains open to support you.

    We appreciate your adaptiveness over the past week and a half and remain in partnership with you to provide the best experience we are able to do so given the times and situations we are in.
