Thank you for your cooperation and support following today's incident at Colorado's Finest.
We want you to know what happened. It was reported that a student may have a weapon. We immediately followed our safety procedure which is to put students and staff on lockdown. We then contacted Englewood Police Department. Officers recovered a gun. The building was evacuated and searched by Englewood Police Department. No other weapons were found. The student in question has been arrested.
School will resume as usual tomorrow. Police have assured us that everything is safe. We will offer additional counseling support will be available at the school for students and staff. Please feel free to reach out if you are concerned about your student. Please also use this resource on trauma to assist you and your student.
Students can retrieve their personal items tomorrow morning at school. Doors will open for students at 7:50 a.m. so that staff can have a meeting before school.
Thank you for your partnership and support of our kids, our staff our schools and our community.
Wendy Rubin, Ed.D.
