Other grades could accept students depending on class size. 

Applicants will need to apply via this Google Doc.

Applicants will be assigned a random three-digit number. Once the numbers have been assigned, an electronic random number generator will be used to select the winning number until all openings are filled. 

Lottery winners will be notified after May 18. Winners will need to decide at the time of notification if they are accepting the invitation to enroll their child/children in the Aspen schools.

“Clearly COVID-19 and the physical distancing hardships we are experiencing will have an impact on our calendar,” the district said in a notice issue this week. “One immediate response is that the high school will be pushing Experiential Education from the fall to the spring next year. This calendar change provides time for staff to adjust their Ed Ed course as needed in response to proposed physical distancing directives. Other calendar changes are in dialogue regarding the availability of summer school and multiple scenarios for the start of the year depending on public health orders.”
