ASPEN FAMILY CONNECTIONS
In 2016, Pitkin County, Aspen School District and a number of local organizations and community members teamed up to create Aspen Family Connections, designed to serve as a one-stop family resource center. Aspen Family Connections provides families with information on academic or emotional support organizations, financial assistance, extracurricular activities or summer camps. In addition, we offer a number of popular workshops (in connection with Family Matters) on parenting and education throughout the year.

SAFE 2 TELL
Safe2Tell Colorado wants every student to know - telling isn't "snitching.” Telling is when you need to keep yourself or someone you know safe from threats, harmful behaviors or dangerous situations; and you can do it anonymously! Not sure if you should use Safe2Tell? If you don't, who will? We need your help to spread the word about Safe2Tell and take action to stop dangerous behaviors in our schools and community before they happen. By calling, you can help stop a friend from committing suicide, get another student off drugs, or stop a bully from making other people miserable. If you have information about any of these topics, please call or go online; don’t wait! To make a report, call 1-877-542-7233 from anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The call is free. The report is anonymous!
