(DENVER, Colo.) Greetings, good morning and happy Monday to you and yours, Denver.

Welcome back to another Monday edition of the Denver Daily Round-Up.

Hopefully, the weekend was pleasant, relaxing and recharging for all. Without further ado, let's dive right into just a handful of the most important and local stories you should know more about before starting your workweek:

1. All Adams 14 schools will return to in-person learning starting Monday

Adams County School District 14 schools will return to in-person learning starting Monday due to current data regarding staff shortages.

A letter was sent to family, parents and staff members Sunday announcing the return to in-person learning. The school district said last week that some schools would return to in-person classes while they figured out how much staff was available to work, according to FOX31.

The school district said it will continue to observe and keep track of staff shortages and is encouraging parents to get themselves and their children vaccinated against the coronavirus.

2. Coloradans attend anti-vaccine mandate rally at Colorado State Capitol

Protesters congregated at the Colorado State Capitol building Sunday to demand an end to vaccine mandates.

Former state Sen. Ted Harvey, the organizer of the protest, said the event is a way of sending a message to policymakers that Americans are rising up and have had enough. CBS Denver reports that the protest comes two years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.

The CDC reports that over 856,000 people have died from COVID-19 nationwide as of Jan. 20, with over 531 million vaccines having been administered.

A charity event called Souls Unite was held Sunday afternoon at the Oriental Theater in Denver to raise money for the victims of the Denver and Lakewood shooting spree in December last year.

Musicians and artists took part in the event, selling auction items, paintings and tickets. The proceeds from the event will be split evenly among charities for the victims Alicia Cardenas, Alyssa Gunn Maldonado, Danny Scofield and Sarah Steck, according to Denver7.

Event organizers said they had raised roughly $7,000 as of Sunday evening.
