D11 Announces Plans to Return to In-person Learning for K-12, Five Days Per Week
Colorado Springs Dist. 11 - 02/19/21 10:30 AM

Due to continuously improving COVID data in our county, increasing vaccine availability, and our ongoing prudent safety practices within the District, we are planning to return K-12 students to school five-days per week at the start of the fourth quarter, March 10, 2021. Preschool will continue on the four-day schedule. 

Colorado’s COVID transmission rates remain among the lowest, while vaccination rates are among some of the highest compared to other states. Understandably, some families may choose to continue with the remote learning option, which will still be available with some modifications. Families will hear more details in the coming weeks regarding school-based scheduling and logistics as those details are finalized at the school level. 

It is thanks to our diligent work to keep our students, staff members, and buildings safe that we are able to make this very critical step forward. The District’s and Board’s desire since last spring has always been to open our schools fully to provide in-person learning, as safely as possible, which is key to academic success. We look forward to making this move and welcoming our students back to in-person learning. Thank you.
