TAKE A LOOK INSIDE INNOCADEMY ALLEGAN CAMPUS
We have some awesome middle school drummers! Click HERE to watch.
Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade had a blast at the Outdoor Discovery Center. The kids enjoyed fishing and learning about the different kinds of fish. They also learned about fins, scales, gills, and other features of a fish.
Our middle school artists were busy learning about forced perspective photography this week. This was a lot of fun!
WONDERING IF YOUR CHILD(REN) SHOULD ATTEND SCHOOL?
Walk through this super helpful INTERACTIVE FLOW CHART anytime you have a question about whether or not your child should attend school because they are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or have had a possible exposure.
As always, if your child is suffering from any of the symptoms, below, that are NOT related to seasonal allergies, they should be kept home until symptoms are no longer present without the use of medication.
- Runny nose and/or congestion
- Tired and/or achy
- Short of breath
- New loss of taste and or smell
ABSENCES AND TARDINESS
Accurately tracking student attendance is extremely important. In an effort to simplify the process for notifying us of absences and/or tardiness, please use the following email address to let us know.
In addition, we are required to record the specific health reason of the absences. For example, please let us know the symptoms that your child is experiencing instead of just saying he/she is sick.
You may have noticed that we have outdoor learning areas around the outside of our building. In addition, we have been visiting the Outdoor Discovery Center and other outdoor learning areas often this year. We are so excited to continue using these areas throughout the school year! Please help your child feel comfortable during these outdoor adventures by making sure they are dressing appropriately for the weather that day. We know this can often be a challenge! As a reminder, if the temperature and/or windchill brings a reading below 0 degrees, we will not be going outside. On all other days, please bundle up =).
