REMINDER: Excused Absence Requests Now in Aspen - Parents/Caregivers can now report student absences in Aspen's Parent Portal. This new method is easier as it reduces the need for parents to call, email, or send in paper notes. You can also report absences on multiple days and submit dates in advance for approval.
REMINDER: Recess & Inclement Weather - Students will have a daily outdoor recess, except when there is inclement weather. This is determined by administration and takes into account many factors, such as, but not limited to temperature and wind chill, active rain or snow, ice on the playground, etc.
Criteria used as general guidelines are:
25 degrees and up - outside
16 - 25 degrees but must have feels like of 20 degrees or higher - outside
16 - 25 degrees but feels like lower than 20 degrees - inside
20 degrees or below - inside
All students are expected to go outside and stay outside for the entire recess period. Students must stay within the predetermined boundaries of the playground during recess period. There are to be no contact games or hard ball games. Any injuries or unsafe conditions should be reported to the supervisor on duty. When the whistle is blown, recess is over. Students should line up quietly and quickly by class. Upon entering the school, students must be quiet and return to their classrooms in an orderly manner, so as not to disturb classes already in session.
