Resource from ELEVATE

Jessie Skipwith

Dear Aspen Academy parent community,

I want to begin by thanking you all for handling all of the events that have transpired to date with such grace and partnership. It truly is a blessing to be a part of a community that is at the forefront of educational and community leadership. The proactive nature with which Aspen Academy has leaned into this current state of affairs is very comforting and validating. Thank you!

I also wanted to reach out to you as parents on behalf of the ELEVATE team to avail both myself (Jessie Skipwith) and Megan McKnight to each of you as true partners as we continue to support you and your students throughout these days and in the foreseeable future.  Please feel free to always reach out via email or cell phone at any time as we are happy to partner with you in overcoming any challenges or supporting you in anyway that we can.

As you will have noticed in various resources that have been shared thus far, helping our children as best we can to establish systems of normalcy and routine, modeling for them resilience and calm in what can be a very challenging time socially and emotionally, and continuing to remain as informed as possible as new information becomes available; are some key strategies that we can continue employ in this moment as we move forward.

Please find here for your convenience some information that has already been shared with the Aspen Academy community from local level and national level emergency response agencies for your ready access…





Again, thank you for your partnership, understanding, and patience as we move into these next several days and weeks.

Be safe and be well,

Jessie Skipwith and  Megan McKnight
