Allen ISD announces timeframe for changing At-Home or In-Person instructional model
Allen ISD understands that families may want to change their instructional delivery model selection during the school year. Due to the scheduling complexities inherent in both At-Home Learning and In-Person Learning, parents are asked to make a commitment for at least one full nine-weeks grading period.
The chart below outlines the timeframe for making a change in the selected instructional delivery model prior to the start of each new grading period. Parents wishing to change their child’s participation in either At-Home Learning or In-Person Learning for the next nine-weeks grading period will need to complete the Commitment Form. Information will be sent to all parents about the process to request a change.
All changes will be effective on the first day of each new nine weeks grading period as listed below:
Please note that adjustments in instructional delivery model selections across the district may impact teacher assignments and student schedules.
Staff may need to shift to align with new instructional model choices. Therefore, even students who do not change instructional models could experience a change to their teacher(s), course availability or class schedule as teachers are assigned based on the numbers of students and course requests in each environment.
FREE...YES FREE MEALS!
Allen ISD will offer free meals for all elementary and middle school In-Person Learners, as well as all At-Home Learners (PreK-12) through December 2020. This is part of a nationwide waiver issued from the USDA.
Beginning on September 21, 2020, Allen ISD will begin providing free meals to students as part of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program. Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), this program will allow any student in elementary and middle school (PreK to 8th) to receive a free breakfast and lunch meal in the school cafeteria, with the option to purchase a-la-carte items.
Additionally, the District will offer pre-ordered meals for all At Home learners (PK-12) at no cost. Pre-ordered meals can be picked up daily at Boyd Elementary, Rountree Elementary, Curtis Middle School, and Ereckson Middle School from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. The meal will include one lunch and the next day’s breakfast. Heating and holding instructions will be included so that families can heat their lunch at their convenience. Sign up is required each Friday for the following week.
Curbside menus (chose pickup location)
Lowery Freshmen Center and Allen High School do not participate in the federally funded program and therefore meals will be charged as normal in those cafeterias; however, freshmen and high school students who are learning virtually are able to pre-order and pick up meals at the curbside locations at no cost. Freshmen and high school students qualifying for reduced meals will receive free meals through December 2020. Students eligible for free meals will continue to receive free meals for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year.
Parents are encouraged to continue filling out the free and reduced application online at https://www.allenisd.org/domain/37. The benefits from being approved for free or reduced-price meals may include discounts for transportation, standardized tests, college application fees, and technology fees to name a few.
