Principal Notes: Have a classroom/teacher request?Here is Asbury’s policy for teacher requests: Parents may not request a specific teacher assignment. You may want to share information that might help us make classroom assignments.  The information about a student should address educational needs (e.g., learning style, interests, areas of concern, strengths). Please email these requests to alicia_fajohn@dpsk12.org .
