The District 60 teacher strike in Pueblo continues into its third day Wednesday.
Teachers plan to ramp up the protest with a march through town, followed by a rally at Mineral Palace Park. They will begin picketing Wednesday morning around 7:15, and then march to the river walk.
Though the strike continues, more students are returning to class Wednesday. Haaf Elementary will be fully open, and Apex Online Courses will start up again at all four high schools. Most pre-schools in the district are also open.
Even with more schools opening, thousands of students are still waiting to return to class, and many say losing the time is concerning.
"We would rather be in school. Sometimes you don't always want to be there, but for these teachers who pour everything into us, we should show our support and pour everything into them as well," said Palo Macura, South High School sophomore.
Student Council members from various high schools met with the district Superintendent Tuesday, asking for an end to the strike and a better relationship between admins and teachers.
The Teacher's Union President said that she has requested a meeting with the district Wednesday to start negotiations. D60 tells News 5 that they have been in contact with the union and are working to set up a meeting.
"Big picture here, we want to find somehow, someway to reach a solution here," said Dalton Sprouse, Pueblo City Schools Representative. "The offer that was made on Friday is still the only offer that is on the table at this time."
