jh/HS FOOD PANTRY
Allen JH/HS is teamed up with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma with the help of the Chickasaw Nation to provide a food pantry for students in grades 6-12. The purpose of the Food Pantry is to provide students with extra food for the weekend who might not otherwise have food when they cannot eat at school. We served up to 60 students when we were first hit with the pandemic in March and continued through May. We have been able to replenish our pantry and are ready to help out anyone in need. We will be handing out backpacks with food every week beginning on Tuesday, October 13th before Fall Break begins. After Fall Break, we will be handing out the backpacks on Fridays. We also have toiletries such as deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, personal products and a few other items that people in our community have donated to help our students out. Please answer the following questionnaire if you think that your student(s) may qualify for this program. Again, we want to help and this is confidential. (If you know of a student in need, you may recommend them using this same survey.) The questionnaire is sent only to Mrs. Costner. You must meet the criteria of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to receive food. The toiletries are not part of the Food Bank. Once your application is received, you will be contacted. Please click on the link below.
My main communication to students about scholarships is through school email. I always forward what I receive to students and parents. I will post as many links as possible to this page. You must be proactive in searching for scholarships--I don't receive information on all of them, but I will post as many as possible.
2021 jh/hs INFORMATION
CHROMEBOOK POLICY AND PROTECTION PLAN
Click on the following links to read our "Student Handbook" and our new "Chromebook Policy and Protection Plan". Each student, in grades 6-12, will be issued a chromebook to use for the school year. We want to emphasize the importance of issuing these to our students--it is vital that each student has his/her chromebook as soon as possible. Please read the contract, sign it and return it, so we can issue one to your student. If you cannot print the contract, it is available at the high school office. We also have printed copies of the handbook available. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Grimm or Mrs. Costner.
All students must fill out the following form and turn in to high school office.
