Henry Elementary School

Dedicated To Excellence


  • Dear Henry Families,  


    I hope that this message finds you and your family well. We have been working with El Paso County Public Health and D11 health staff to make the best possible decision for our school community. At this time, we need to share some very important information with your family.  


    Due to COVID-related illnesses, all Henry Elementary classes will be held remotely beginning Tuesday, November 10th, 2020. As of now, we plan to resume in person learning on December 1st after Thanksgiving break. 


    The parents of all students known to have close contact with people with COVID-19 have been notified and instructed to keep their children home. Staff who were in close contact have also been instructed to quarantine. Our School Kitchen will remain open during this period of remote learning for food distribution with curbside food options for breakfast and lunch.  


    Both meal options will be available from 11am-12:30 pm on regular school days. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. 


    Please feel free to email ginger.ernst@d11.org if you have any questions. I truly appreciate each of you as we navigate these times together. 


    Mrs. Ernst

  • The Academic and Facilities Master Plans

    The Academic and Facilities Master Plans are gaining momentum! Join the District 11 team as the community comes together on December 7th and 8th to continue the process of designing the academic and facilities’ plans that will accelerate our progress towards D11’s goal of becoming the leading school district. The goal of this process is to prepare all of our students and the City of Colorado Springs to thrive in the 21st century economy. There will be a total of 16 virtual meetings to provide as many opportunities as possible for our community members to engage in this critically important process. The content of each meeting will include district wide issues, while also affording the opportunity to have input to issues related to high schools and their feeder areas. Please check www.D11.org/Rebuilding to review the schedule and RSVP. Your voice matters! We look forward to the conversations on December 7th and 8th. Please select a meeting and put it on your calendar!
