LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — On Tuesday, the Poudre School District posted an update on their website announcing their plan to have in-person learning five days a week for all K-12 students.
“We have seen firsthand the benefits of students, teachers and staff being back together in school and still believe that is what’s best for kids. Although some aspects of school are different because of health protocols, much has remained the same: the smiles and laughter, the deep connections, conversations and learning, and the staff support of students and families,” stated PSD.
Larimer County Department of Health and Environment Director Tom Gonzales supports in-person learning because of the consistent health protocols within schools. Also, more adults and eligible teenagers are being vaccinated, and health officials predict this will reduce the amount of cases in Larimer County.
