In Person Learning Starts September 2

At the beginning of the year, all families were asked to select At-Home Learning or In-Person Learning for the first 9 weeks of school.


All students will participate in At-Home Learning for the first 3 weeks, and after that time, those that selected In-Person Learning will return to the school building for instruction, and those that selected At-Home Learning will continue learning at home.


In-Person Learning starts on September 2nd. Homeroom teachers for In-Person Learners sent an email last week with specific procedures. If you did not receive this email, please contact your child's teacher.


After the first 9 weeks, parents will be able to continue with their original selection or change their learning format selection.


Please go to the Allen ISD web for further information. https://www.allenisd.org/Page/58559

Allen ISD Resources for Families

As we prepare to begin 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:


The COVID-19 Prevention, Mitigation, and Response Procedures outline the current procedures our campuses will have in place to prevent or mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and how to respond if a positive case is identified.


The Academic Information for Families webpage provides instructional information and resources related to In-Person and At-Home learning models, digital learning tools, and academic supports. All students will begin the first day of school on August 12 participating in At-Home Learning. This specific content will be helpful as you and your student prepare for the start of school:


  1. Weekly Learning Plans - an overview of the learning objectives, activities, and due dates
  2. Instructional Roles and Expectations – a list of learning and teaching expectations for students, parents, and teachers
  3. Student Attendance – process for recording attendance through daily engagement measures while participating in At-Home Learning
  4. Digital Learning Tools – resources to help students learn how to access and use:
    • Google Classroom and Seesaw (for elementary students)

    • Canvas (for secondary students)

    • Google Meet and Zoom (video conferencing platforms for virtual learning interactions)
