SOUTHERN COLORADO — As the state's stay-at-home order remains in effect, many schools are announcing they are continuing e-learning, or remote learning, for the rest of the school year. We are keeping track of the school districts as they come in and making sure you know the most important information.

The following school districts have announced they will have remote learning for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year:

  • Pueblo School Distict 70
  • Pueblo West District 60
  • Harrison School District 2
  • Hanover School District 28
  • District 49
  • Manitou Springs School District 14
  • Cañon City Schools Fremont Re-1
  • Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind
  • Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8
  • Widefield School District 3

Many school districts are deciding what the rest of the school year will look like and what will benefit the safety of students, employees and the surrounding community because of COVID-19.

The executive order was issued last month and has been in effect since March 26. This executive order means Coloradans should not be leaving their homes except for critical activities including:

  • Obtaining food and other household necessities including medicine
  • Going to and from work if you are a critical employee
  • Seeking medical care
  • Caring for dependents or pets
  • Caring for a vulnerable person in another location
  • Cannabis and liquor stores will remain open
  • Or participating in outdoor recreation at a legally-mandated safe distance of six feet or more from other parties
