Dear Denver South Students and Families,
Per the communication you received from DPS, the Denver Public Schools Department of Climate and Safety received emailed messages through Safe2Tell about threats made.
We were on a secure perimeter. None of the schools were placed in a lockdown. Our Campus Safety Officers were present, with the assistance of Department of Climate and Safety patrol officers and Denver police, were able to conduct a rapid sweep of the interior and exterior of the schools and found no threats to our school communities.
They have increased the security presence for the remainder of the day and will evaluate the need for the increased presence next week.
If students need additional mental health resources, Colorado Crisis Services can be reached at 1-844-493-8255.
Congrats to our jazz band for a great performance at Dazzle’s Denver, a locally owned nationally jazz venue.The event was a sold out show!
