Campus Parent Communication - August 21, 2020

Greetings Vaughan Families!

We have now completed the first full week of the 2020-2021 school year! WOW! Thank you for all of your support, patience, and grace. I know that things are not as "normal" as they have always been. However, our dedication to educating your students will consistently be our top priority here at Vaughan. I appreciate our staff, students, and parents for all of the hard work that was put in to kick off the school year.


It's been so great to see all of our sweet students' faces during the synchronous learning times. Students have been in attendance, engaged, and involved in the learning. We are so proud of them, and truly appreciate your support.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have a question, concern or praise for a student or staff member.

Allen ISD to Host Bond Background Meeting

Looking for more information on the 2020 bond election? Join Allen ISD for a Zoom webinar on August 25th from 6-8 p.m. There will be presentations from AISD’s third-party consultants in the areas of demographics and finances, as well as information from Allen ISD’s Chief Financial Officer. The community is invited, and there will be time for questions.


You must register to attend. Register now at https://forms.gle/5zuMgQRTPSfn4CSi7


This informational meeting is one in a series of presentations to provide as much information as possible about the 2020 bond election on November 3. This first meeting will not focus on individual projects in the bond proposal, and instead feature background information that was provided to Project Kids (the 80-member citizen advisory committee) this summer.

Changing Network Password on Chromebooks

All passwords were reset at the beginning of the year with students ID#s being their username AND password. We're asking that you now have your students reset their password to something unique to them. This provides an extra level of security. Please know that once they change it, we can't see what it is. Therefore, if they don't remember it, you'll have to put in a help desk technology request so that we can help you work through resetting it. Click here for instructions on how to change your child's password.

Skyward - Back to School Forms

Reminder - Each year families are asked to complete Back to School forms for each child enrolled in Allen ISD. If you have already done this, please disregard. If you have not, log in and complete these forms as soon as possible so we have the most current information available as we care for your child this year. If you have trouble logging into Skyward, please contact Nera Van Ark - nera.vanark@allenisd.org.

REMINDER - Allen ISD Resources

For the 2020 – 2021 school year, Allen ISD has compiled additional resources for our families. These resources are available on the Allen ISD website and can be accessed through the following links:
