Holmes Parents and Guardians,
Please join me for another Virtual Parent Coffee on 12/15/20 from 11:30am-12:30pm via the WebEx link below.
Parent coffee is an informal way for parents and guardians to engage with your school's principal. We do not have an agenda, we create a responsive feedback loop, and we build relationships one conversation at a time.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
At this time, we need all families to select their Holmes student's or students' learning environment for the second semester, January through May 2021.
Because D11 has currently only committed to full remote learning until the Winter Break, beginning January 6, we anticipate students will again have the option to attend in-person in the Hybrid schedule, or to attend full remote, Inspire Online. Both options will require a semester commitment in order to adequately staff full remote learning and to provide stability within both learning environment(s). Divergence from that commitment may become available, but will likely only be dictated by changes in the course of this pandemic.
I ask that all families complete this 2nd Semester, 2020-2021, Learning Choice Form by December 6 even if your preference does not change from this semester to next. If you have any questions, you may contact your student's counselor.

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!
We invite you to be part of a community-wide conversation as School District 11 presents Beyond the Mask: A trust-building and listening tour. The next virtual meeting will be December 15th, Learning in the Pandemic Age: How to help your student online, in-person, and in life.
