    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.

    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. Michele Barkoot, office professional, will run the background check and will let you know if any issues arise during the process.

    Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick Up

    Please help us with a safe and speedy drop off and pick up process.  Please do not park your vehicle in the Driveline lane, and please pull all the way forward so that we can get more cars in the parking lot.  

    We do ask that all drivers stay in your vehicle and have your child exit through the passenger side door. Please pull into a parking space and walk over to drop off or pick up your child if they need assistance with a car seat or seat belt.  Drivers should not be exiting vehicles in the Driveline lane. 

    As you enter the parking lot, please remind your child to be ready to disembark from the vehicle so that you can drop them off quickly. Saying your goodbyes as well as having backpacks zipped and ready to go help expedite this process for all.

    News from the Language and Art Departments

    Señora Lenore Webb, our Spanish teacher, and Mrs. Laura Naar, our art teacher, have created newsletters for families this week.
