DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis' Office announced Monday that all in-person instruction at K-12 school districts and post-secondary institutions will continue to be suspended through the end of the school year.

The current stay-at-home order will end April 26, and on April 27 the state will be moving onto the "Safer at Home" phase. During this phase, Coloradans will no longer be ordered to stay home, but are still strongly encouraged to do so. Vulnerable populations and seniors must continue staying home except when absolutely necessary, the governor said. Also as part of the "Safer at Home" phase, K-12 school districts and post-secondary institutions will continue to suspend normal in-person instruction until the end of the school year.

A number of southern Colorado school districts had already announced that they would be e-learning, or remote learning, for the rest of the school year.
