Sunday Update (3 May 2020)

Happy Sunday Allen Eagles!

This is Mr. Greenwell, the proud Principal of Allen, with your Sunday update for today, Sunday, May 3, 2020.

First, we hope this finds you and your family well and in good health.  Please continue to follow all safety guidelines issued by state and county health officials.


Allen Essential Item Distribution

MAY 4 & May 5

Adults only, please, if possible.  Please wear a mask and practice physical distancing.  Volunteers and staff will bring items to your car in the car loop outside of Daly Academy.

If your child has medications at school, you may pick them up at this time, or you can leave this year’s medications in the health office to be picked up at later date.  As always, new/updated orders from your child’s doctor for the new school year will be needed.


Allen Staff Appreciation Week

(May 4 to 8, 2020)

Join us as we celebrate our amazing Allen team of paraprofessionals and professionals!  This is a great week to not only tell your child’s teacher how much you appreciate them, but also the other staff that impact your child’s life at school!

Watch the short video message below and check out our themes for each day this week.  Students, please be sure you have your parent’s permission before submitting a photo online.
