Igniting a Passion for Learning, One Student at a Time

Announcements

  • Holmes Community,

    We have a second incidence of a Holmes student or staff presenting a confirmed positive case of COVID that was contracted outside our school. These two incidences are unique and unrelated and are therefore not defined as an outbreak of COVID-19 from our school.

    As always, all Holmes families receive this email and letter in order to be informed of any COVID incidents each time they may occur.

    If you also received an email with the COVID Close Contact Letter, it means your student is a close contact to this confirmed positive case, and should quarantine as stated in that COVID Close Contact Letter.

    Because of the recency with these two incidents, it is understandable if you have questions or concerns. Therefore, if you have any questions, please email Dave North at david.north@d11.org for more clarification.

    Tony Karr, Principal

  • Attention Parents and Guardians,

    Please see the attached information for updated CMAS plans at Holmes. This information is different from the 3/19/21 CMAS email because the State of Colorado has received a test administration waiver from the U.S. Department of Education.

  • Holmes Parents and Guardians,

    Due to the strains that the pandemic has put on everyone this school year, we have changed our plans to hold the traditional Excellence Picnic at the end of the school year, to an End of Year Celebration. Instead of an earn your way in incentive, it will be an earn your way out celebration. 

    Students will earn their way out and unable to participate if any of the following criteria applies:

    • Student's accumulated absences exceed 7%
    • Student has an in or out of school suspension during fourth quarter
    • Student did not actively participate in D11 Spring Universal Screener exam

    We will begin tracking these criteria beginning March 15. Please let us know if you have questions.

    Anthony Karr, Principal
