Information regarding school delays and closing can be found on all Sioux City TV and radio stations. There are many factors to consider before making the decision to cancel classes, to start late, or to dismiss early. First and foremost, is the safety of the students, faculty, parents, and staff. Such a decision is not taken lightly.
We will be communicating with other area schools and hopefully will make a decision as to a weather related two-hour late start or closing as soon as possible. Occasionally a decision can be made either for a two-hour late start or a closing the night before. In the case of severe weather please check the 10:00 pm Sioux City news for up-to-date late start and closing information. Weather-related dismissals can also be found by going to the school website at www.allenschools.org and clicking on the Snow Cap Weather Closing and Delays button or the KTIV Weather Alerts on the right side lower section of the front page.
New this school year for student / parent use is a push notification process. Using your smart phone go to the Google Play store or iTunes store and download an app called Allen Consolidated.
**Make sure to accept notifications when installing the app**
The school will be continuing to use the ADT program where each family will be called about delays and closings.
Occasionally it may be necessary because of bad weather to have an early out. If this is the case every effort will be made to publicize the early out and contact parents. We do not want to have students home alone
