Allen High graduation is on with a twist!
04/29/2020

Allen High graduation is on with a twist!

Allen High School has announced its plan for conducting graduation for the Class of 2020.

Under the plan, individual seniors and up to five family members will take part in a graduation ceremony on a stage at Eagle Stadium on May 22. Students will arrive at scheduled times and have a short video and photograph taken on the stage. They will then exit to the concourse where they will receive their official diploma and other recognitions. The entire process is expected to take approximately 15-20 minutes from the time they arrive in the parking lot until they leave.

The individual ceremonies will be held simultaneously on four stages on the field at Eagle Stadium. Video clips will be compiled into a searchable Class of 2020 graduation video and graduation portraits will be available as in previous years. Only the graduates and their five family members will be allowed into the stadium at their scheduled time. The stands will not be open to the public.

Approximately 1,650 seniors will graduate with the Allen High School Class of 2020. The ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m. and last until all scheduled students cross one of the four stages.

“Everyone recognizes the far-reaching impact school closure has had on learning and the social emotional needs of both students and adults,” explained Allen High School principal Dr. Jason Johnston. “Perhaps one of the most impacted cohort of students are our graduating seniors. These students and their families have unfortunately been forced to miss many of the traditional milestone moments that play a key role in bringing an appropriate closure to a thirteen year journey.”

Johnston stressed the importance of balancing the safety of students and families with providing a meaningful graduation experience. Student leaders had expressed an interest in graduating from the stadium.

“I think we have a good plan to honor our students under these unique circumstances,” added Johnston, “and still comply with the state guidelines. Our plan will maintain a distance of at least 25’ feet between the families, which would exceed state distancing guidelines.”

In lieu of graduation practice, seniors will be receiving detailed information in the coming weeks about scheduling and parking information along with a short video.

Next sale will be in the fall so it should be pretty good after all the purging everyone is doing. Since I am not shopping on this beautiful day, I'm going for a walk. What are you doing?

And here it is....what we've all been expecting.

**A Message from Superintendent Robin Bullock (3 p.m., April 17, 2020)**

Dear Allen ISD Parents and Guardians,

Earlier this afternoon, Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas schools will remain closed for the rest of the school year. While we are sad that we cannot open our doors, we trust and respect the decisions made by our health officials and state leaders. Our first priority in Allen ISD will always be the health and safety of our students and staff.

Though our schools are closed, learning is still very much in session. Our teachers and staff will continue to work throughout the end of the school year to provide our students with enriched learning opportunities. I want to thank our staff members for the unbelievable job they have done with this new style of educating students. I know that many of our teachers are heartbroken that they will not be able to see their students in person before the end of the school year.

I also want to express my gratitude to you – our parents and guardians – for this amazing partnership that has been formed over the past month. I know that at-home learning is completely different from what we are accustomed to, but you have risen to the challenge. I sincerely appreciate your collaboration as we work together to educate our students.

Finally, I want to recognize our students who have not been able to see their friends or teachers, and those who have missed their athletic competitions, fine arts performances and other events. My heart hurts for all of our students, but especially for our Senior Class of 2020. They have looked forward to certain milestones, like prom, awards night, and graduation for most of their academic career. We are discussing many options right now, and seniors and their parents can expect more information from the high school regarding the status of these events.

For the time being, please keep these seniors in your thoughts. You may begin to notice yard signs at the home of each senior student. Countless teachers, staff members, administrators and board members delivered the signs earlier this morning as a small recognition of their final year at Allen High School.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this difficult time. I hope you all stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,
Robin Bullock
Superintendent of Schools

Not having time to fill out the census isn't a valid excuse these days.

Creamy Instant Pot Tuscan Garlic Chicken by Amy + Jacky

I have been cooking every night and it's not my favorite thing to do. I found this super easy and very tasty recipe and thought you'd like it too. I had everything but the sundried tomatoes. So yummy! Everyone ate it and loved it. I used 1 enormous chicken breast and cut it up for 3 of us. It was over 1lb! That poor chicken!

Make this crazy satisfying easy weeknight meal! Tender chicken immersed in simple yet richly balanced creamy garlic sauce with caramelized mushrooms & sweet sun-dried tomatoes.

A message from Superintendent Robin Bullock (5:00 p.m., March 31, 2020)

Dear Parents,

I recognize that the learning at home experience is new for all of us. Since our last communication, Allen ISD has begun at-home learning for 22,000 students. The positive comments and the work you have shared through social media has been inspiring. I can’t thank the teachers, administrators, staff members enough for rolling out the at-home learning program and providing resources to families in less than two weeks.

Due to continued health concerns, Allen ISD campuses will remain closed through Friday, May 1. This decision has been made with input from our local, state and federal officials. Staying home and practicing social distancing is still our best approach against the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

I recognize that school closings have a major impact on families. Parents, grandparents and of course our children are all affected as work schedules and daily routines are disrupted. Please remember to reach out to your child’s classroom teacher or campus administrator if additional support is needed.

Our school buildings will remain closed but we will continue to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of our students. At-home learning will continue through the month of April, except for April 10 – a school holiday. While it does not compare to a full day of instruction at school, I have been impressed with the creativity and energy our teachers have shown in preparing at-home lessons. Thank you parents for creating space and time for your children to continue their education at home.

I encourage you to follow Allen ISD news through social media and please visit www.allenisd.org/healthupdates to receive the most current and accurate information about this extended closure and Allen ISD’s response to the COVID-19 health concern.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
