Dear Allen Families,
We are in the final days of the 22/23 school year. It has been a very memorable year with much to celebrate. Returning to school wide assemblies and field trips as well as volunteers in the building have been some of the welcome highlights for the year. We appreciate each and everyone of you who have helped contribute to our school community in small and large ways!
We will be collecting student Chromebooks from our Young Fives through 4th grade students over the coming days. Our 5th grade students will be keeping their Chromebooks and chargers and taking them with them to middle school. Your child’s classroom teacher will let you know when the Chromebooks and chargers need to be back at school. Now is a good time to help your student clean up their device by removing all stickers, wiping down the screen and the keyboard.
The communication this week will cover the following topics:
Field Day - Prevent Heat Exhaustion
From Allen Nurse Beth Araujo:
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is our Field Day, and it is looking to be quite hot outside. Please make sure your child dresses for the hot weather and brings a water bottle to prevent heat exhaustion. Hats with brims (for sun protection) can also help.
Signs of heat exhaustion include dizziness, thirst, sweating, nausea and weakness of the muscles. Drinking plenty of water, seeking shade when available, and taking breaks as needed are all great ways to fight heat exhaustion.
Last Day for IDT or SOC Applications!
Today is the last day to apply for an In-District Transfer or School of Choice application. Please reference the other emails that have been sent regarding these topics, and let the office know if you have any questions.
Complete Enrollment or Registration
Emails have been sent by our Student Accounting department, and these are to complete Enrollment (new students or PreK to K) or Registration (returning students). Look for the email from “noreplyregistration@
We would like to have as many of these completed as soon as possible as this helps us plan for the coming school year. If you have questions, please call the office at 734-997-1210, or email email@example.com
