PUEBLO — Pueblo District 60 announced it is having all of its high schools begin the school year Monday completely virtual.

The note sent out to families Tuesday morning said the district is moving forward with this change because of the high demand for a virtual hybrid option at the high school level and "more time is necessary to continue to adjust class sizes and schedules."

Last month, the district's school board voted to approve a Return to School Plan consisting of a mixture of in-person instruction, hybrid instruction, and a 100% virtual learning option.

The plan follows health and safety guidelines recommended by the Colorado Department of Education, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and Pueblo Health.

This updated plan only impacts high school students, while middle school and elementary school students continue to have the option of in-person learning.

Parents of middle and elementary school students have until Wednesday, Aug. 26, to update their child's learning option. For more information, click here.
