It looks like spring has arrived! What a beautiful time of year to be an Allen Eagle! Our in-person students have been enjoying more and more time outside, playing, and enjoying the weather. Please make sure to still send a jacket or sweater for those cooler mornings. We look forward to the day our 4th and 5th grade students are able to join us here at Allen!
This weekly communication will cover the following:
5/3-5/4 Stage 4 (4th-5th grades Cohort A transition to the hybrid in-person model)
5/6-5/7 Stage 4 (4th-5th grades Cohort B transition to the hybrid in-person model)
5/6 Thursday, May 6 is NO LONGER an early release day.
Second Grade Entrance Plan
This Thursday and Friday, April 22 and 23, second graders will need to enter the building at the Great Room doors. We have some concrete repair work that needs to be completed at the entrance they have been using. Weather permitting, we anticipate the work to be finalized over the weekend and ready to resume our previously established plan starting Monday, May 3.
Our schools begin administering all safety drills this year starting next week. This means that our virtual teachers may need to pause instruction while we are in the drills. You will receive communication from classroom teachers. Our goal is to complete all Safety Drills (Fire, Severe Weather, and Security Drills) by April 30, 2021. As always, Security Drills are not intended to cause fear but rather empower students, with the guidance of their teachers, to react appropriately. All schools in Washtenaw County are participating in the ALICE protocols, which are flexible to enable us to adapt our response depending on the specific situation that could be encountered.
