Good Afternoon Pueblo Academy of Arts Families,


This is Mr. Farias with the weekly update. I’m sure that you’re aware by now that Pueblo School District No. 60 and Pueblo Academy of Arts will be closed next week. Up-to-date information can be found on the school district website regarding school closures and the school district’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


On Monday, March 16th, students, families, and staff will be allowed to come into the school building between 8:00 -12:00 PM to pick up personal items, medications, instruments, music, and school supplies that might be needed during the school closure and over Spring Break. Families picking up medication will need to sign it out of the building. If it remains at school, it will be stored in a secured and locked location as usual. As of noon on Monday, all school district facilities will be officially closed.


3rd quarter grades will still be posted by Friday, March 20th at 2:30 PM. Information can be submitted to teachers during this closure through their district email accounts which can be found on the PAA website. Teachers will be using this week to begin planning for instruction should schools remain closed past Spring Break. In this case, a distance learning plan will be enacted which will provide students with daily learning opportunities and assignments posted to Google Classroom, which students have been using throughout the year already. Information will be provided if this becomes the case.


Also, please check the PAA website for information provided by Comcast about giving low-income families access to free internet services for the next 60 days. 


Be sure to take the time that we are being provided to engage in proactive practices to maintain you and your families health. Focus on getting well if you are already sick. And spend lots of time making happy memories with your family. As always, I appreciate your time and attention. Have a great evening.
