We would like welcome Brad and Alicia Gibbons and their boys Jonah in Kindergarten and Canaan in 3rd grade! Welcome to Allendale Christian School!


IMPORTANT ENROLLMENT INFORMATION!

Enrollment opens to the community tomorrow morning. Please see below for a few important reminders for ACS families:
  • If you are enrolling a child in Young Fives or Kindergarten for the very first time online, there is a one time $300 enrollment fee, which is part of the tuition cost. Once they are enrolled online, you never have to re-enroll them again.
  • Because there is no re-enrollment for students in Y5 or above, it is very important for you to notify Brian Koetje if you anticipate enrollment changes, like potential unenrollment, for next school year. This information is important for planning. Brian's email is bkoetje@allendalechristian.org.

Tuition Assistance for 21-22 ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school. Completion of the FACTS application is a requirement for next year's enrollment if you are expecting a remaining balance at the end of the school year or you will be requesting tuition assistance. Families who wish to apply for tuition assistance will need to use the FACTS application format online at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3Z45H. The application information will be easily accessible data from your 2020 tax return, along with financial accounts, and will require that copies of confirming tax documents be sent to the FACTS center. The FACTS organization will analyze the information of each applicant. 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, 2021. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.

There will be NO school on Friday, January 29 This day will be used for the teachers to prepare for the continued support they are providing for various situations during this unique school year.

The 7th/8th Grade EOCS Concert that was scheduled for February 4 has been cancelled.

With the increasing community COVID spread, it is so important that parents send healthy kids to school. If you have a child that is not feeling well, please keep them home. If these are typical symptoms for you child, and not worsening, and there is no reason to believe there has been a contact to a positive COVID case, students may return after following normal protocols, like 24-hours fever free. Please use the 'Who Must Stay Home' document below (page 2) as a guide for when students should stay home.

-- There are many other documents on our re-opening page that can answer many questions you might have, specific to ACS, or more general procedures for schools regarding COVID, staying at home, etc. Here is the LINK to that webpage.
