To get a more accurate enrollment picture, each of the three Aspen schools will do a “head count” — counting actual students in the
classrooms, as opposed to those just registered on paper (currently 558 at the elementary school and 451 and 548 at the middle and high schools, respectively, including in-district and out-of-district students) — for at least the first week of school.

ASPEN REAL ESTATE — When the bell rings at Aspen High School Thursday, the school will see more students than ever passing through the doors. The same will hold true when middle and elementary school students start classes Tuesday.“We’ve had more families just coming in to register than we expected; families that just moved to Aspen … surprisingly more families,” Aspen Middle School Principal Tom Heald told the Aspen School Board Tuesday night.
