PUEBLO — Pueblo School District 60 has announced on Monday that all graduations will be held virtually due to COVID-19.

"The decision to move to a virtual graduation ceremony was made in light of the current and anticipated orders regarding stay-at-home orders, social distancing requirements and restrictions on large gatherings" wrote Superintendent Charlotte Macaluso in a letter to parents and staff. "This very difficult decision was made with the safety of our students, staff, families and community in mind. "

The virtual graduation will take place on the same dates and times as the already scheduled 2020 Graduation.

The district says that the virtual ceremony will be a lot like the normal ceremony with student speeches and honors.

Distribution of caps, gowns and announcements beginning the week of April 20. This distribution will be a drive-through, pick-up process as we will take all necessary precautions and implement social distancing measures.

Seniors will be able to pick up the caps and gowns at the following locations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.:

  • East High School: Monday, April 20
  • Centennial High School: Tuesday, April 21
  • Central High School: Wednesday, April 22
  • South High School: Thursday, April 23

The district will still consider honoring the class of 2020 in person at a later date in the year.
