Pueblo District 60 has developed an Emergency Distance Learning Plan which was supported by the D60 Board of Education on Tuesday, March 10. This plan addresses how Pueblo School District 60 will continue providing instruction to K-12 students during the school closure. This online programming will be accessible to students at whatever time they are able to complete the work each day. We will be using Google Classroom as the learning platform for all students K-12. This platform is accessible using a desktop, laptop, chromebook, tablet or cell phone.  Distance Learning will begin Monday, March 30, 2020.

Grades K-2 

In grades K-2, Google Classroom will be used primarily as a communication tool with parents. K-2 teachers will be reaching out via parent email or phone to all K-2 parents to invite them to receive online lessons and activities which parents can complete with their students each day. Online lessons will start on Monday, March 30 and continue Monday through Thursday for as long as schools are closed during the 2019-2020 school year. Learning in grades K-2 will focus on reading, writing, and math only.


Grades 3-12

Your child's teacher(s) will be reaching out via student D60 email accounts to all students in grades 3-12 to invite them to participate in daily online courses which will start on Monday, March 30 and continue Monday through Thursday for as long as schools are closed during the 2019-2020 school year. Learning in grades 3-5 will focus on reading, writing, math, and specials (pe, art, music) only. Learning in grades 6-12 will include all content and elective areas. 


Exceptional Student Services (ESS)

Additional online support for ESS students is being developed. 


Preschool Students

Activities and resources for parents of preschoolers are being developed and will be available soon via the District website.


Additional Information

  • We encourage parents and/or students to reach out directly to your child’s teacher via email with any questions you may have.

  • Parents are asked to update their contact information (email, phone, address) via the Parent Portal to ensure accurate communication from teachers, school, and district.

  • For parents who do not have a Parent Portal account, if they have an email on file, we will be creating accounts automatically for them. We encourage parents to check their email for the invitation.

  • For parents who do not have a Parent Portal account AND do not have an email on file, they can call 719.549.7111 and we will be able to help get them setup. Please note, when parents call in for access, there will be a series of screening questions to ensure we are granting appropriate access.
