Whether you are a new family or have been here, you know that Asbury is special. We are a school that values community. We foster the connection between home and school, the connection between teachers, students and families. To celebrate that and foster that, we have an amazing event coming up that I want to highlight- Carnival!
Carnival is an Asbury tradition that brings our community together. Just as the name denotes, our carnival will have fun games and booths with activities. It is also a time to connect, catch up and get acquainted with other Asbury families. This year, Carnival will be hosted on 9/23 from 5-7. It will take place outside at the school. Please join us for all the fun and festivities. If you would like to volunteer, feel free to reach out to PTSO!
Another thing that makes Asbury special is our offerings of specials classes, multi-lingual supports and intervention support. We offer art, technology, PE, and music time. To learn a little more about some of these offerings, check out these flyers, brochures and resources.
I also wanted to share with you some bittersweet news. Ms. Barros, our amazing 1st grade Math teacher, is moving and will be transitioning out of her role in October. Though this is sad for Asbury, we wish her all the best.

Message on COVID Decision Tree: With the new school year comes a new COVID Decision Tree and I wanted to send it to you all so you know the current protocol that DPS is using. The main takeaways I want to highlight:
If a student tests positive, they cannot return to school until at least 5 days have passed since symptom onset or the date of the positive test. Upon returning they should continue to wear a mask for 5 days.
New this year is if there is a household exposure: Quarantines are no longer recommended for anyone exposed regardless of vaccination status, but should continue to mask around others for 10 days.
The nursing office are very happy to see maskless smiles this year, but let’s continue to keep our community safe and wear a mask if we have mild symptoms or stay home when feeling sick. As always, feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.
Message from the Health Office on Medications, Vaccines, and other Health Info: If your child requires medication at school, please bring the required paperwork and unexpired medications to the health office as soon as possible. Qualified staff members will be available to receive medications during school hours beginning 8/17. Please note that school staff cannot administer medication at school without appropriate documentation signed by both parent and physician (this includes over the counter meds, lotions, etc). Specific medication forms can be found here: Medication Forms
Once complete these can be emailed to the school nurse or faxed to (720)424-9775
If your child has new/specific health care needs, please make the school aware of these prior to the beginning of the school year.
Colorado State law requires that children be fully vaccinated to attend school. If necessary, exemption forms for medical and nonmedical purposes can here.
