Effective at the start of the summer semester, we are modifying wearing a mask indoors from “required” to “highly recommended.” This decision comes after our continued review of current metrics, recent CDC guidance and following the unanimous recommendation of our medical advisors.

Justin Kearney-Allis Elementary What I really need here is a picture. For even a thousand words, can not portray the visuals that run through my head as I "see" the halls of Frank Allis. The thousands of children that were touched by the ever presence of Justin Kearney. Every child needs to know they matter, that someone has their back. Justin is that person to so many past and present Allis scholars. They know not only because he told them, words arent really his way, but they know because he showed them by his presence at school, on the bus, in their neighborhood, at their ball games, at their homes. SEE the picture....for it is a beautiful example of love for others. Thank you, Justin!
