A Message From The Principal
A message from our School Nurse, Karin Gardner:

If you are thinking of traveling during Spring Break we ask that you please review the following information and refer back to it before and after traveling. Thanks!

Before Travel:

Travel can increase your risk especially in these situations:
  • Is COVID-19 spreading at your destination or does your destination have restrictions? The more cases of COVID-19 at your destination, the more likely you are to get infected during travel and spread the virus to others when you return. International travel is more restricted for US citizens so look for more information on other countries.
  • Are you going to a large social gathering like a wedding, funeral, or party?
  • Are you attending a mass gathering like a sporting event, concert, or parade?
  • Just being in crowds - for example, in restaurants, bars, airports, bus and train stations, or movie theaters increases your risk.
  • Are you traveling on a cruise ship or river boat?

Know When to Delay your Travel to Avoid Spreading COVID-19

People who are sick, have recently tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 should delay travel. Learn when and for how long to delay travel to avoid spreading COVID-19. If you get any symptoms of COVID-19, see What to Do If You Are Sick.

During your trip, take steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19:


After You Travel

You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can be contagious without symptoms and spread the virus to others. You and your travel companions (including children) pose a risk to your family, friends, and community for 14 days if you were exposed to the virus. Consider getting tested on your return to help determine if further measures need to be taken.
Announcements
Parent Teacher Conferences March 11th 11am - 7pm

We are excited to be offering virtual parent teacher conferences Thursday March 11th from 11am until 7pm. Your child's teachers will be using Zoom for these conferences. The links are available directly from the sign-up; however, for security, these conferences will require a password for entry. Your child's teacher will be sending the password.

For your children in kindergarten through third grade:
You may sign up for ONE slot with your child's homeroom teacher. You are also welcome to sign up for slots with your child's specials teachers and any interventionist or literacy teachers your child may see.

For your children in fourth and fifth grade:
You may sign up for one slot with each of your child's TWO core teachers. You are also welcome to sign up for slots with your child's specials teachers and any interventionist or literacy teachers your child may see.

For your children in middle school (sixth through eighth grade):
You may sign up to meet with your child’s core class teachers, specials teachers and any interventionist or literacy teachers your child may see.

If you have more than one child, make sure you sign up for time slots with each of the teachers you would like to meet with about each of your children. If you have any questions or significant concerns regarding your student’s work in a certain subject, please do not wait until Parent/Teacher Conferences to contact the teacher.

***If you still have not signed up please email your teacher directly***
Reminder for AVA Families with Incoming Siblings

If you have not yet received an offer for an incoming sibling for the 21/22 school year please email our enrollment office to ensure they have been put on the list with sibling priority.
Missing Laptop Chargers

Elementary parents please look around your house for student laptop chargers. We have several missing chargers which did not make it back to school once quarantines are over. The chargers are not always labeled with student or teacher names so we are not sure which ones are missing. Our supply of chargers is very low and for some models we cannot give teachers any replacement chargers. Please send them back with your student to drop at the office. Thank you for your help.
Mask/Face Covering guidance while on AVA property

We are asking parents/guardians to please wear a face covering while on AVA property during arrival and dismissal. There is no requirement to wear a mask or face shield while in your vehicle.

Thank you for your assistance with this as we try to keep AVA open to in-person learning as long as the safety and health data show it is safe to do so.

Middle School Sports
Middle School Sports

Spring is upon us, and our sports programs are still on "pause." Our school and athletic conferences main concern is keeping our students in school. Because athletics would include the mixing of cohorts, we need to monitor the situation closely. We will continue to track the safety of sports through Colorado and CHSAA, and send out any update accordingly. Thank you for understanding!
