2023-24 Return to School Plan

  • Pueblo District 60 will provide full in-person learning at all K-12 schools, four days per week (Monday-Thursday) for the 2023-24 school year.  The district has made available a 100% remote learning option for grades 5-8 through the launch of D60 Online.  Parents must register for this option and enroll in that specific school.  In addition, Paragon Learning Academy also provides a hybrid or 100% remote learning option for students in grades 9-12. Again, students must enroll in that school to access that instructional model.

    We look forward to welcoming all of our students back and kicking off the school year, on Monday, August 14, for a reorientation and transition day, which will enable staff and students to build and nurture positive relationships and make valuable connections. Individual schools will be communicating with families regarding the schedule for reorientation day. 

    As students return to the classroom, we will ensure the safety of our students and staff to the greatest extent possible. This is a community-wide priority, and we all have to do our part to make this happen. The D60 Return to Learn School Plan includes numerous health and safety protocols that D60 is taking to minimize the exposure and spread of COVID-19.  Remember that the number one protective strategy families can take is to ensure all eligible family members are fully vaccinated.


  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “COVID-19 is mostly spread by respiratory droplets released when people talk, cough, or sneeze. It is thought that the virus may spread to hands from a contaminated surface and then to the nose or mouth, causing infection.”  Therefore, in order to lower COVID-19 exposure and spread, the following specific health and safety expectations, practices, and procedures will be put in place in all D60 schools.
