RETURN TO VIRTUAL LEARNING

Pueblo School District 60 will transition all High Schools to Distance Learning effective Wednesday, November 11, 2020.  In addition, we will transition all PreK-8 grade students to Distance Learning effective Monday, November 30, 2020, following Thanksgiving Break.
This is necessary due to the extremely high incidence of COVID-19 transmission in our community.  Although our schools have done a stellar job in implementing health and safety processes which have been effective in containing and minimizing the spread of COVID-19, surging infection rates from the community continue to negatively impact our schools.  With more and more student cohorts and staff needing to quarantine, this places significant strain on our system.   We are unable to provide the necessary coverage to continue to operate our schools and provide in-person instruction. 
We anticipate the shift to Distance Learning will be in effect at least through the end of the 1st semester which will carry us into 2021.  We understand the hardship and inconvenience this presents to our families.  D60 has been proactive in providing a technology device to every student, and our teachers and other staff are better prepared than ever to deliver quality instruction during distance learning.  We will continue to serve our students and our community to the best of our ability. 

STUDENT WILL FOLLOW THIS SCHEDULE
BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2020

  • Teacher will take attendance in 'live' classes. Students must stay in the class. Checking in, and then leaving the live session is just like leaving class, and you will be counted absent.
  • Students doing Asynchronous work will no longer take their own attendance.  
  • Parents must still call to excuse their students, otherwise absences will be counted 'unexcused' as they normally are. Students may not call themselves out.
  • If you log in late to live class, you will be counted as 'tardy' just like you normally would.
  • Students that need help, have questions or need more support to improve their grades should use those Asynchronous times to contact teachers for that support. Teachers have made time to be available to you, please check with your teachers to find out how to take advantage of this resource.
  • If you have any questions, please call the main office 549-7335.
