COLORADO SPRINGS — Starting on June 1st, the Colorado Springs School District 11 will begin allowing students and staff members to engage in summer camps/programming, which will resemble athletic practices, according to a release.

“Getting students active and participating in somewhat normal activity is a necessary step as we look forward to slowly reopening our school district,” said Chris Noll, D11 Athletic Director. “It’s beneficial for not only the students’ physical health, but also their social emotional heath as well.”

D11 has put in several health and safety protocols for students and staff, which include regular health screenings and staying home if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVD-19.

The camp are completely voluntary, as no student will be punished for not attending.

All students and their parents/guardians must sign a Return to Play waiver/permission slip before the students will be allowed to participate in any camps.
