PUEBLO — Pueblo West High School in District 70 delayed its return to in-person learning due to a possible COVID-19 exposure at the school.

Students at the high school will return Tuesday, Oct. 6, following an investigation led by district officials Monday for the possible exposure last week. The district said three people are in quarantine out of precaution.

The district's Board of Education initially voted unanimously in July to have students begin the school year in completely remote learning with the plan to transition students into a hybrid, in-person learning model mid-September.

In mid-September, the district said most students will return to full, in-person learning with two high schools, Pueblo West High and Pueblo County High, following a hybrid model. The two high schools were scheduled to start their hybrid schedules this week through the end of the semester.

Pueblo West High School students will begin their hybrid schedules Tuesday with the district saying if there are possible exposures in the future, this could lead to more remote learning days.
