Aspen View will follow Douglas County School District’s guidance for Delayed Start and Snow Days. All school closures can be seen on most of the local TV channels in the morning. You may also call the DCSD weather line at 303-387-SNOW (7669) to hear the latest updates. When in doubt, please check their website, generally updated by shortly after 5:00 a.m. at: https://www.dcsdk12.org/schoolclosureinformation/
The Douglas County School District has been divided into 3 areas; Highlands Ranch, Parker and Castle Rock. It is possible for the district to close or delay school in only one of the areas. This is rare, but it can be done. If you see on the TV or hear on the weather line that Douglas County is listed as closed or delayed start that means all of the schools are closed or delayed. If you see or hear that the Parker area is closed or delayed that means that Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock are open.
If the district calls for a delayed start, school at AVA would start 90 minutes later than normal, meaning that school would start at 9:45am. Carpool on a delayed start day begins at 9:15am and before school care would open at 8:00am. Please do not drop off your child earlier than 8:00am for Before Care, as no one will be here to supervise your child.
We realize that we must rely on parents driving their children to school and that you may feel the road conditions are unsafe to drive on. You always have the option of keeping your child home if you feel that the roads are unsafe even if the school is open. In such cases, please call AVA’s front office and that day will be listed as an excused absence.

Dear Parents of AVA,
We would like to let you know that we conducted a pre-scheduled Lockdown Drill today. The drill went very well and is part of our routine here at school. Our number one goal is safety, and it is imperative to make sure students, teachers and administrators respond appropriately in the event of an emergency.
The safety program we have elected to use is the Standard Response Protocol. It is widely used by the District and incorporates four actions: Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter. We encourage you to visit the website by clicking here. We also encourage you to have age appropriate conversations with your children regarding these drills and let them know that this is part of making sure we are all safe at school.
We would also like you to know that AVA meets and exceeds the district’s safety requirements:
- Access to our building is secure at all times
- We have an assigned School Resource Officer (SRO) who conducts routine safety checks and offers ongoing support as needed
- We conduct fire drills monthly
- We conduct a Lockdown Drill each trimester
- We are networked to the district’s emergency communication system
- We regularly train staff on safety procedures
- We comply with Police Department guidelines both generally as well as in special situations
Thank you for your support,
Aspen View Academy

Date: Saturday, January 17th 2015
Time: 9:00 AM -1:00 PM OR UNTIL SOLD OUT!
Location: AVA Cafeteria
Kids grow quickly and you probably have some uniforms that your kiddos have grown out of. Don't let those uniforms go to waste...sell them so that other families can benefit from them!
Your participation makes a difference! When you sell your used uniforms at the Aspen View Academy sale, 30% of your sales are donated to Aspen View Academy. You also have the option to donate all of your sales and if you prefer, you can even donate your unsold items to benefit AVA. And, if your used uniforms are torn or stained, the AVA health office gladly accepts those donations.
SELL your used uniforms at the discounted prices of your choice - refer to this direction sheet for more information on how to participate. Don’t forget to complete your inventory sheet and price tags for each item you sell. Package all of your forms with the uniforms you would like to sell within a single bag of any size and drop them off at the AVA office to be placed in the uniform sale bins at your earliest convenience (and before the 16th.) Your uniforms and paperwork will be handled with care, organized and sold for you at the sale, and your sales will be waiting for you in the office the week following the sale. ...Selling your used uniforms couldn't be any easier!
BUY used uniforms at the sale on Saturday, January 17th in the Aspen View Academy cafeteria to benefit from the savings of discounted unforms. Arrive early since items usually go fast and sell out before the end of the sale! CASH and checks only!
