“This is another touch-point opportunity that we can reduce the barriers to kid learning. Whether or not that’s in a virtual environment or in person, we want to make sure that the students have everything that they need in order to be successful,“ said Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen.

Families are asked to practice social distancing and wear masks.
