Dear Allen Families,
The warm weather is here with us as we embark on our second full week of the school year. Cooler mornings have students dressing in layers and we are already accumulating some sweatshirts and other items in the lost and found. It is very helpful if you label all of your child’s personal belongings, especially water bottles, so we can get them back to their owner. Students should bring a water bottle to school daily, and we do have water bottle filling stations in our hallways. If you are in need of a reusable water bottle for your child, please let your child’s classroom teacher know.
The communication this week will cover the following topics:
Daily Covid Screener
Parents and guardians are responsible for reviewing the symptoms below each day that their student will attend school. Student COVID-19 Symptom Checklist. For more information on AAPS’ Covid Policies, please visit COVID & Health Guidance - Fall 2022.
Driveline Hang Tags
Driveline hang tags have been made and will be going home with new families today or tomorrow.
Driveline numbers are family numbers, so if there are multiple siblings in one family, they will all have the same number, and it stays with them during their whole time at AAPS. Their hang tag should stay with them for the remainder of their time at AAPS as well. One hang tag has been created per family.
Volunteer Background Check Form
If you are interested in volunteering at Allen Elementary this school year, which includes chaperoning field trips when applicable, we will need you to fill in the Volunteer Background Check Form. This form and background check needs to be completed every school year, and are run through the Michigan State Police I-Chat System. After you have filled out the form, please send an email to Michele Barkoot at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know it’s completed. Michele will run the background check and will let you know if any issues arise during the process.

We are looking to hire additional full time Special Education Teaching Assistants at Allen.
