PUEBLO — This past week, members from the District 60 school district handed out grade-level curriculum packets and laptops to students in need.

The curriculum included weekly assignments as an alternative approach to learning for elementary students who could not access the internet and/or did not have a device to connect to online instruction.

Currently, D60 is entering their third week of online learning as part of D60's Emergency Distance Learning Plan.

"I couldn't be more proud of our organization," said Superintendent Charlotte Macaluso. "Our staff members have truly stepped up and have gone above and beyond to serve our students and community in these challenging times. Clearly, COVID-19 has shed light on the many inequities that exist - our job is to ensure we are doing everything we can to mitigate those disparities and to lesson that gap. This is a total team effort, and we are in this together.”

Staff observed proper social-distancing measures, including wearing gloves and masks, to ensure the highest level of safety for all.
