Greetings Allen Families! We are committed to providing you with weekly summer updates in the hopes of maintaining two-way communication between the school and our families:
Summer Learning Camp at Allen
A small number of students per grade level will be invited to attend a Summer Learning Camp at Allen Elementary in August 2020. Summer Learning Camp will provide instruction in reading and mathematics to students who may benefit from additional intervention. During each day of the Summer Learning Camp, students will receive one-on-one instruction, small group instruction, and social emotional learning from excellent teachers within our District. Each child’s individual literacy skills will be assessed and addressed during this ten-day camp. This experience is intended for a limited number of students: Only those students needing additional support in reading foundational skills and mathematics will be invited to attend.
Current safety protocols set forth by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will be in place. Guidelines and protocols are likely to change frequently based on the needs of the local community. Based on what is known at this time:
- Students and employees will wear face masks at all times.
- Handwashing and hygiene will be regularly enforced.
- Daily disinfection of classrooms will occur.
- Daily health screenings and temperature checks of staff and students will occur.
- Physical distancing will be in place within the classroom, to the extent possible, following CDPH guidelines.
- Minimal interaction between groups of students will occur.
Additional information and details will be shared with the families of students invited to attend the Summer Learning Camp at Allen prior to the start of the camp.
School Office Hours
The school office remains closed to the public until August 12, 2020 so that staff can recharge and prepare for the upcoming academic year. Beginning August 12, 2020, the school office hours will be 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday. If you have any questions, you may contact the school office at (619) 479-3662 and we will respond as soon as the office reopens.
We will continue to provide weekly updates on this blog every Sunday and expect to hear more details regarding what the upcoming school year will look like in mid-July. Please continue to check the district’s website, http://www.cvesd.org, and the school blog at http://www.allenelementary.org for weekly updates.
Download the revised Calendar!
The CVESD Board of Education approved a revised school calendar on June 17, 2020. Classes will resume on Monday, August 31, 2020, with the last day of school on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Please note the absence of a fall break on this revised calendar as it closely mirrors traditional school year calendars of other districts in San Diego County.
We highly recommend that all families download a copy of this calendar and make note of all vacations and holidays so that students are present for all scheduled days of school. We also encourage families to schedule doctor and dentist appointments over the breaks or on minimum days so that students do not miss any learning. You may download a copy of the calendar here:
Allen’s 2019-2020 School Yearbooks were mailed directly to the homes of families who ordered them in advance. If you have any questions about your order, please contact Chalkboard Photography directly at email@example.com. A very small number of additional yearbooks were ordered for those families who did not order online in advance. These will be sold on a first-come, first serve basis once the school office reopens in August 2020.
