Dear QP families,
When there is inclement weather this school year, there will be no snow days in District 11. Teachers and students will continue their learning in Schoology. The language you will see from District 11 is INSPIRE ONLINE DAY.
With gratitude, Mrs. Butcher
The United Way has a COVID-19 Economic Relief Fund set up for families in which they will help with bills, rent, and food. Families in our area should call 211 and specifically ask about the fund.
Many of the food pantries have closed; Care and Share have a list of those that are open according to zip codes.

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!
In D11, we are listening to our community to learn more about what they envision for our schools today and for many years into the future. In 2020 District 11 adopted a new strategic plan focused on equity and inclusion for all students. Now, D11 will align our long-term academic pathways, facility plans, and the District’s strategic plan to ensure every student has access to a world-class education. Imagine quality neighborhood schools, distinctive magnet schools, aligned program pathways, and premier career and technical education options, all offered with equitable access to every student, no matter the transportation or logistical obstacles. We are making all of these things a reality as we inspire every mind. Be a part of this incredible journey by visiting www.d11.org/rebuilding and www.d11.org/amp to learn more.
