Get Involved in School Life!
School life at Abundant Life Christian School is active, engaging, and varied. Students can be as involved in activities as they choose to be. Some students are involved in everything they can possibly do while others specialize in a sport, a fine art, or a co-curricular activity.
ALCS strongly encourages every student and family to get involved! Engaging in school activities enhances the overall experience here at ALCS. Participating in and attending events and activities helps students and families make friends, builds our school community, and develops wonderful memories.
Review weekly announcements and check the school calendar regularly for activities and events. Remember to join our Facebook family and follow our page for announcements and more!

Dress Code Policy
Abundant Life Christian School works to provide an appropriate educational environment. Therefore, we maintain a modesty-based dress code for our students.
Embracing Biblical modesty is our goal. In growing toward such, we learn to embrace respect, discernment, cleanliness, and neatness as well. We believe our dress and our actions represent the feelings and thoughts of our hearts. Our clothing and the way we wear it should represent our desire to please and honor God. Any apparel, hairstyle, make-up, jewelry or accessory that interferes with these purposes is unacceptable.
ALCS does not have an “official” uniform but our dress code provides a framework for us to learn Biblical modesty. All students K-12 are to abide by our dress code standards as we are training our students from Kindergarten through high school to make appropriate, modest choices as they mature.
Dress code violations may result in disciplinary actions. Please refer to the dress code for general and gender-specific guidelines as well as the action plan for violations.
“ . . . dress modestly, with decency and propriety.”
I Timothy 2:9

Updated Travel Policy During COVID-19
Travel can be a valuable learning experience. We appreciate that such learning is impactful and meaningful with the potential to build lifelong memories as well as expand horizons, introduce new ideas, and offer service opportunities for students. Travel has its time and place in a student’s growth and development.
However, it is clear that during the season of COVID-19, travel also increases the possibility of exposure to the coronavirus and potential for the need to quarantine.
We also recognize that not all travel is equal either in necessity or exposure.
As a final reminder, our block scheduling this year means academics are progressing twice as fast as in previous years. Therefore, missing a week of classes is equal to missing two weeks of learning.
We strongly encourage families to schedule vacations and travel with due consideration and, if necessary, during school breaks.
If you must travel, whether for a family funeral or some other essential trip, please ask yourself these questions:
- Will your child be able to travel and return safely without increasing the exposure of others at school? Or, to put it another way - would you be comfortable if one of your child’s classmates took the same trip and then came back to school?
- How many close contacts will your family encounter during this trip?
- Close contact is being within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more of an individual(s) who does not live in your home.
- Is the trip going to be limited in scope so that you can keep a list of all the people with whom you came into close contact?
Finally, before traveling out-of-state, please determine if your destination has any travel bans that may affect you once there or if Wisconsin has a travel ban that may affect your return. Any quarantine requirements would add to the time of your trip and length of student being out of school.
ex: Chicago has a travel ban in place against Wisconsin. Anyone going to Chicago is expected to quarantine for 14 days before completing their business in Chicago.
IF . . . the trip is limited to a small number (under 15) of close contacts, none of whom were known to have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, the student may return to school without quarantining.
IF . . . during travel, you encountered multiple (15 or more) close contacts, you need to self-quarantine for 14 days. If you wish to return to school sooner, you may have a COVID-19 test performed 5-7 days after your last close contact with anyone who does not live in your home. If that test comes back negative, you may return to school once your results have been provided to the Administrative Office.
IF . . . you will be participating in a mass gathering (50 or more people), you will be required to quarantine for 14 days. If you wish to return to school sooner, you may have a COVID-19 test performed 5-7 days after your last close contact with anyone who does not live in your home. If that test comes back negative, you may return to school once your results have been provided to the Administrative Office.
