PUEBLO — Pueblo's School District 60 will be losing out on a little over $2 million because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The loss is because all of the schools in the district haven't been able to give out food from their regular lunch program since March. This means no reimbursement from the food programs the district uses.

"That's just revenue that is not coming in. It's lost revenue and as we look into the future of next year, there are going to be a lot of budget considerations that we are going to have to make. We are going to have to continue to analyze and do our best to prepare for what the upcoming school year might look like," Dalton Sprouse of D60 said.

The district is still delivering drive through meals twice a week through the end of the school year.
