COLORADO SPRINGS — Widefield School District 3 is among many school districts that are making changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the district's website, they announced the following changes are being made immediately after Thanksgiving break through January 15, 2021:

  • Grades 3-12 will be in full distance learning at home
  • Preschool and K-2 students will continue in-person learning at school
  • K-12 students with special services will continue in-person services and learning. Specific information will be sent out from your child's school.

On their website, Superintendent Scott Campbell wrote "this decision was not made lightly. It is always our desire and intention to provide in-person learning for all students, and we believe that in-person learning is still the best option for primary students (PK-2). We will continue to consult with local health officials, monitoring county health data, and conferring with staff on when will be the safest time to return students to full in-person learning. In this unstable time, we feel like remote learning will provide consistent instruction for the majority of our students through the holidays."

Meals will continue to be served after Thanksgiving break using a grab and go format. More information will be forthcoming.

Students who are currently transported to school for special services will continue to be transported, as will PK-2.
