WSD3 is providing meals for the all students regardless of Free and reduced price meal status for the 2021-2022 school year.

No cost to students to eat meals this school year

Dear WSD3 Families,

Widefield School District 3 is happy to announce that the USDA has extended waivers through the 2021-2022 school year that allows children from 0-18 to be able to receive free meals (breakfast and lunch).  There will be no cost to students to eat meals for this school year.

WSD3 participates in the Federal Free and Reduced Program to provide nutritious meals.  
We are still requesting that families fill out meal applications for the Free and Reduced program for the school year.   While the meals are free, this application gives other benefits.  This can provide benefits to the families such as activity discounts and Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT).  You can contact the Nutrition Services Office at 719.391.3560 for more information on these programs.

Paper applications will be provided at the beginning of the school year for each student.  Applications DO NOT need to be filled out per student, one application per family is sufficient. Please include all household members on the application to include infants, children that are not in school, college students, and all adults whether or not they receive income.

Applications can be completed online and are strongly encouraged. The link is located at www.wsd3ns.com.

We look forward to serving your families this school year.

In-person and virtual options

Dear WSD3 Families and Staff, 

We want to thank our entire community for your patience and support this school year. We have all had to navigate the challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are excited to announce our learning options for the 2021-2022 school year to make sure all our families have a choice that fit’s their child(ren)’s needs. 

  • First day of school is August 16
  • 7th and 8th grade will start August 17
  • Kindergartner will start August 18. 

Option 1: In-person learning

Research shows that in-person learning at school is the most effective model of learning for students. We will continue to follow safety and health guidelines to keep our staff and students safe while they learn inside our buildings. 

Option 2: D3 My Way K-12 

We are expanding our D3 My Way online program to a K-12 Virtual School. Open enrollment begins on Friday, March 19, and closes on Monday, May 3.
Go to D3 My Way website to complete enrollment. 

There will be two educational models for students who choose to attend D3 My Way:

  1. Virtual: Students complete all coursework online through independent module work, virtual classes with highly qualified teachers, and virtual small groups.

  2. Enriched Virtual: Students complete the majority of their coursework online through independent module work, virtual classes with highly qualified teachers, and virtual small groups. Students also attend 1-2 in-building sessions per week for in-person instruction from teachers, enrichment activities, and experiential learning. 

We will not be providing a synchronous (Cohort C/Online Cohort) option during the 2021-2022 school year. This means students will need to choose one of the options referenced above. 

If you have questions, please reach out to your child’s school directly.
