District 11 uses a mass communication system to notify the community of any delays, closures, or remote learning days. In addition to receiving notifications via email, text message (if you opted in for texting), and mobile app notifications, an alert window will pop up on any page on the District 11 website you visit. This will ensure you receive the notification in a timely manner. The notification box can be acknowledged and closed.
To find out the current status of District 11 Schools, you can always call 719-520-2300. Notices are also sent to the District Flash News Alerts Feed and the D11 Twitter Feed.
