2020 – wow, what a year as it now rolls in to affecting 2 separate school years. Never in my 24 years as an educator could I have ever imagined that schools across the world would have to adapt to a global pandemic. Schools everywhere have been forced to fundamentally change the way we educate kids.  

Staff returning to school and getting their classrooms ready as well as the other countless jobs that need to be done looked so much different this year. Different does not mean bad, it means we need to adapt and move forward with a mindset that ensures that our students will continue to receive an excellent education in a safe and caring environment. You may recall me frequently mention that two of the most important components of Aspen View Academy are culture and climate. Whether you choose to participate with in-person learning or eLearning please know that the entire AVA staff will continue with the rigor and high expectations that you would expect.  

When this all began back in the spring, we asked for parents to please give us grace and to expect grace from us as well. We ask that again as we continue to navigate educating our students. We realize there may be questions that you have and to try and make things more efficient, I am including some quick contact information for you:


Finally, we have revised our school calendar – you can access it here.
