Distance Learning Extended Through June 4th

Dear Allen Families,

I know the news that schools will remain closed through the remainder of the school year has left a lot of us with mixed emotions. I created a short video message for our students which can be seen below.

Please make sure that your child continues to work on their Distance Learning. This will make sure that students do not fall behind and are ready for next school year. If you have any questions or need any assistance with Distance Learning, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher or to myself. We thank you for your continued support and patience through this time.
