  •  WEEKLY MESSAGE!!

    January 24th, 2022

    Dear Allen Families,

    Hopefully you have reviewed Dr. Swift’s message sent on Friday regarding school this week. Wednesday, January 26th, will shift to Remote-Virtual learning. Click here for the complete message: Superintendent Message

    This communication will cover the following topics:

    • Reporting Covid-19 cases and Quarantine Learning Plan
    • Student Directory
    • NWEA Testing 
    • Spirit Wear 
    • Valentine Card donations 

    Reporting Covid-19 Cases and Quarantine Learning Plan

    Thank you for continuing to contact us when your child(ren) contract Covid-19.  Nurse Beth araujob@aaps.k12.mi.us is available to answer your Covid related questions as they arise.  In the event, your child(ren) does need to quarantine, information on the Quarantine Learning Plan can be found at this link: AAPS Quarantine Learning Plan.

    Student Directory

    We have compiled the information for families that have opted to be included in a student directory. The directory is attached here: Allen Directory 21-22 (2).xlsx 

    NWEA Testing 

    It is the time of year when we take the NWEA assessments as one of the tools we use to check in with student progress.  We will be taking the assessments between January 31st and February 3rd.  Your child’s classroom teacher will share the specific dates with you.  

    Spirit Wear

    We have a limited supply of Allen Spirit wear that is available for sale on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are interested in an item, email Torey Madura in our front office at madurav@aaps.k12.mi.us indicating the item, size, and quantity you’d like to purchase.  Torey will arrange with you a cash payment by either sending the money in with your child or arranging for an exchange at the front door. Once payment is made, we will send the items home with your child.  Spirit Wear Inventory January 2022 

    Valentine Card Donations

    As we approach a very exciting holiday in the life of an elementary-aged child, we are seeking donations of Valentine’s cards to support all of our students that want to participate in their classroom exchange and may not have access.  If you have any extra cards or are able to donate an extra set or two we would appreciate it.  You can send them to school with your child or drop them off at the front door.  Thank you in advance for supporting all of your Allen children.  

    Respectfully,

    Laura Wolf

    Allen Principal
