Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Van Allen Families,

Despite the time sacrificed and the patience required, for the safety of all, we encourage EVERYONE to use the car line (this does not include pre-school parents whose arrival and dismissal procedures are different). The following links contain descriptions for both our arrival and dismissal procedures. Please take a moment to read the documents to help ensure our students safety as they arrive and leave each day.


Our NEW Van Allen Mission Statement

Throughout the school year, last year, we have been working on re-creating our mission statement at Van Allen. Check-out the links, below, for some of Mr. Ewald's blog posts: Inspire Learning. Act with Empathy. Van Allen Pride. These posts begin to outline the process that we used. These are the first three posts in what will be a series of four. Stay-tuned...
