The so-called "vigil" took place outside the DPS administration building in downtown Denver. They posted messages emphasizing the importance of a detailed plan for in-person versus remote learning.

They say there's no clear threshold for returning to remote learning, which makes it impossible to plan ahead. They say they want better communication.
