“We are doing everything in our power to keep our schools open and to maximize in-person learning opportunities for our students. At the same time, we are facing a critical staffing shortage, like districts across the country, that impacts our ability to safely operate our schools,” the district told CBS4 on Tuesday.
They say they will try to communicate with families about any future changes by 4 p.m. the day before.MORE NEWS: Colorado's Hospitality & Tourism Sector Expected To Rebound Slower Than Others
