Aspen Ridge COVID-19 Information Page
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak, also known as COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our students and staff are our highest priority, and and all decisions will be made with this this goal in mind.
On March 19, the school was made aware of a middle school student showing symptoms typical of the COVID-19 virus, while testing negative for Strep and Flu. While it has been predicted that many of us will contract the virus, we would just like to encourage all our families and staff to follow guidelines by the state and federal agencies to practice social distancing, stay at home as much as possible, and take care of yourselves. Families of students who may have had direct contact with the student before March 13 are being notified separately. Please continue to monitor your children and contact your healthcare provider if they start showing symptoms. At the bottom of this page and linked here are CDC guidelines that can help inform you on how to protect yourself and what to do if you think you or a loved one is sick.
On Executive Action by the Governor, Aspen Ridge is closed through April 30. Please continue to check your student's Teacher Pages for updates and direction to continue their education as much as possible during these difficult times. We will continue to update the Aspen Ridge website and send communications as the situation develops and information comes available. We urge you to do your part in slowing the spread of the virus and keep your families and community healthy and safe.
Please continue to check your email for updates from the school and your student's teacher(s). We will also post all new communications below.
The following link will take you to most recent communications sent to families so you can stay up to speed:
