AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — Aurora Public Schools announced on Monday the delay of in-person learning for high school students until Nov. 13 due to the increase of COVID-19 cases.

Specialized learning needs students will continue in-person learning, this includes students with special needs, newcomer students who are in early stages of English language development and Career & Technical education students at Pickens Technical College.
