  • Holmes Parents and Guardians,

    3. All library books are due May 12th.
    4. Text books and Chromebook and charger check-in will occur:

      3. Students who are attending Holmes via full remote learning, May 26th or May 27th.
      4. Please inspect your student's Chromebook and charger for damages and full operation. If something is broken or not operating, make the Media Center aware ASAP.

  • 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
