Last week, I sent an email to get feedback from parents to help promote ACS to new families. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Write as much or as little as you want. The survey only has a few questions and you are free to answer any of them. So far, only three people have responded. Please help me promote your school. Thanks! Brian 

Parents With more activities after school, please read this reminder of the school policy regarding students staying after school (below). There has been an increasing number of elementary students left after school unsupervised, which can create liability issues for the school. We request that parents pick up elementary students after school, or make sure that they are with an adult. If they are here for sporting events, we will ask them to remain in the gym as we are not able to hire more staff to supervise them outside of child care.

  • "After School Procedures (students who stay after school) Allendale Christian School is responsible for the supervision of students that are participants in official after- school extracurricular activities. ACS is not responsible for the supervision and care of students who stay to observe activities that they are not participating in or who choose to leave the campus to walk elsewhere. Middle School students may stay after school with parent permission, and should stay on campus, but ACS cannot be responsible for their supervision. Elementary students who stay must have supervision and, if not, should take the bus home or be picked up."

ACS is in need substitute teachers as well as substitute bus drivers! If you are interested, or know of someone who would be willing to be contacted, please email Brian Koetje t .

Tuition Assistance for 2020-21  ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school.

They will provide our school with recommended grant amounts based on need and financial status. Parents who have children in more than one of the participating schools need only to fill out the application one time-the information will be available to other Christian schools where their children attend. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2020. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.
