Distance Learning Attendance Procedures


Please review this important information regarding attendance. It is important to know that attendance will be taken daily. See this document for more information.

Technology Needs

The Oakland Undivided initiative will be providing free laptops, internet access and ongoing tech support for all Oakland students. All students will be provided the devices they need in order to access their education. This survey must be completed as soon as possible to determine eligibility for a device.

In the meantime, if your child is in grades 1-5, you may submit a request form directly to Allendale if you did not receive a device during any of our distribution days, or if your current device isn't working, by clicking below. Chromebooks for TK and Kinder Tigers will be announced at a later time soon!

Food Distribution

Starting August 10, the Nutrition Services Department will operate 24 pick-up locations throughout the city where “Grab and Go” meals will be available for any student enrolled in TK to 12th grade at one of our District-run schools, or in our Young Adult Program. Allendale is a distribution site on Mondays and Thursdays.

When arriving at each of the locations, families will be asked their student’s name, grade and what school they attend.

  • Our staff will verify the student’s enrollment before the family is given food.

Please note:

  • Social Distancing measures are in effect.
  • Face coverings are required.
  • Kids do not need to be present to pick up food.
  • Multiple days worth of food can be picked up at once.

Backpacks and Supplies

We are planning a second tentative Backpack Drive on 8/10 for parents that missed the initial distribution. Stay tuned for additional updates here and on Talking Points.
