Switching Your Child's Learning Platform
As Fall Break approaches and we start preparing for second trimester, we know some families are looking to switch learning platforms (eLearning or in-person).

If you would like to make a change to your child's learning platform, please complete this form by October 16th. You do NOT need to complete the form if your child will continue in their current learning platform. You will need to complete the form for EACH student for whom you are requesting a change of platform.

We will be working with teachers and families to make the necessary changes and have those students beginning their new learning platform the first day of second trimester, November 9th.

Middle School Sports
Middle School Sports

Due to the concern for the safety of our students, and following CHSAA guidelines, all middle school sports will be put on pause until January. We are currently in the process of reformatting seasons, so we can have an opportunity to still participate in all sports that AVA typically offers. If your student is interested in participating in a sport in the spring, please consider turning in their sports physical this fall, to avoid the rush.

If you have any questions please contact Lindsay Alguire at lalguire@aspenviewacademy.org.
