School Day Info

The Front Office is open on all school days between 7:45 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday. It is closed on all holidays listed on the school calendar and during weather-related closures. You can contact the Front Office by calling 720-733-3436 or emailing [email protected]
 
 
Any valuable or delicate item will be kept in the Main Office for safekeeping and identification will be required to claim an item. If a name is written somewhere on an item, every effort is made to return it to the student.

Found clothing, water bottles, lunch boxes, outerwear, etc. will be collected and placed in Lost and Found and will be kept until the end of each month. Periodically, all unclaimed items will be donated to a charitable organization. At the end of the year, any unclaimed uniform items in good condition will be donated to AVA’s Uniform Sale.

To help prevent lost items, parents are strongly encouraged to label their child(ren)’s belongings. 
All visitors must enter AVA through the Main Office. To receive a Visitor Pass, individuals must provide photo identification to be processed through and sign in by providing their name and purpose for visiting the school. Parents must submit a photo ID to be processed through. While on campus, the Visitor Pass must be displayed. Administration has the right to deny access to any individual. Visitors must also sign out in the Main Office prior to leaving the building. Visits to classrooms must be prearranged with the teacher prior to entering the school.
 
Access to specific areas and classrooms may be restricted at the discretion of Administration. Visitors are expected to comply with the AVA Community Agreement. 
Students are not permitted to leave campus without being signed out by a parent, guardian, authorized adult, or a signed note with written parental/guardian permission to walk or bike home. If a student leaves school grounds without permission, (s)he is considered truant and subject to disciplinary action. 
In the case of an emergency or unforeseeable circumstance, a message can be delivered to a student. Please make all after-school arrangements and communicate them to student(s) before the start of the school day. Parents are not allowed to call a student directly during the school day. This includes calling a student’s cell phone or teacher. 
 
Aspen View Academy contracts with Douglas County Nutrition Services to provide school lunch options for our families. Parents may load their MySchoolBucks account in advance with money to pay for student lunches. The application also allows parents to track student lunch spending and view individual lunch purchases.
 
In order for students to participate in the DCSD lunch program, parents must first create a lunch payment account for each student on MySchoolBucks. The account must be preloaded with money (a credit card is required). Once their lunch payment account set-up is complete, students may purchase a DCSD lunch on any school day. Students will need to know their six-digit DCSD Student Number. This can be found in your Infinite Campus parent account in the upper left corner next to the student picture.
 
Through June 30, 2022 DCSD Nutrition Services offers meals at no cost to students. Each student is entitled to one free lunch per day. Students are required to take a fruit or vegetable to be eligible for the no-cost meal. Ala cart food items are also available for purchase.
 
Lunch Menu can be accessed here

Free and reduced-price lunches are available to families who meet specific income guidelines. Please contact Nutrition Services for more information and required forms. Information about free and reduced lunch can be found here.
 
LUNCH AND CAFETERIA GUIDELINES
Students who generally bring their lunch from home are still required to have a lunch account as a backup. If a student forgets to bring their lunch to school, they will be allowed to charge their school lunch to their account. In general, students are to use positive behavior and to treat others with R.E.S.P.E.C.T. while in the cafeteria. The following guidelines will help ensure an orderly lunch period:
  • All food and drink items are to be consumed in the cafeteria.
  • Students are responsible for cleaning their table and floor area before leaving the cafeteria. For spills, ask for assistance from lunchroom supervisors by raising a hand.
  • Parents may bring outside food and drink for their own children only. For the safety of children with food allergies, bringing in food for anyone other than your own children is strictly prohibited. 
  • Respect and politeness must be shown to all, including the cafeteria staff and parent volunteers.
  • Students must be patient while waiting to be served. A single file line must be maintained and no “cutting” is allowed.
  • Students must be seated at a table when eating. Once seated, there is to be no moving without permission.
  • Throwing food, ice, or other objects is not allowed. Running, excessive noise, “horse play” or other disruptive behavior is not allowed. Students should refrain from shouting across tables. Noise levels should remain reasonable.
  • Students must not share food with others due to allergy/safety concerns.
AVA follows the DCSD’s School Safety and Security page or the “ I love you guys” Standard Response Protocol page.
 
In the event of an emergency, parents will be contacted via email and/or phone. Please avoid coming to the school until you’ve been instructed to do so. It is possible that, during a crisis in the neighborhood, you will not be able to enter the school building if it compromises the safety of the children during a lockdown or lock out.

Please DO NOT call the school directly during an emergency as this will tie up phone lines and prevents important inbound or outbound calls with emergency personnel. Communication will go out as soon as it is safe to do so.
