COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- School District 11 doesn't want their students to feel like they're in the dark.
"Be the Light Colorado is an idea spurred on by the Colorado High School Activities Association," said District 11 athletic director Chris Noll. "Sending hope to kids, 'we miss you.' We care for you and we can't wait to see you."
Be the Light Colorado encourages everyone at D11 to reach out to someone.
"When they just pick up the phone and they call somebody every day and just spend ten to fifteen minutes. Facetime, zoom something where they're actually talking, not Snapchat and text message," said Noll.
"There are multiple platforms that we can connect with each other even though we can't physically be with one another," added D11 superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas. "It's just a make a simple phone call to a student to another staff member to say hey I'm thinking about you. I know that it's a tough time right now."
During these tough times, D11 wants everyone to feel like they can shine.
"These lights represent our ability to see every student still even though we're not physically with them every single day. We miss them, we love them and we can't wait to get back," said Thomas.
