SCHS Updates

  • UPDATE TO SCHS/RES/SRES FAMILIES:


    School District 49’s law enforcement partners at the Colorado Springs Police Department have cleared an active investigation in a neighborhood near Sand Creek High School and surrounding areas. CSPD reports there is no danger to our schools and buildings. Accordingly, lockout status is lifted at SCHS, RES, SRES and RMCA. Schools will operate as normal at these locations for Wednesday, April 17.


    It is important to stress this activity has nothing to do with an alert police have put in place for schools in the Denver Metro area.

    The events of Wednesday morning created a need to safely move and hold students from the Sand Creek Zone at a secure location.

    • Students who were diverted to Creekside Success Center will be walked by administrative staff to SCHS to resume their normal schedule.

    • Students who were diverted by bus to Vista Ridge High School will be bused back to SCHS to resume their normal schedule.

    • Horizon Middle School Students who were diverted will be bused back to HMS to resume their normal schedule.


    RES, SRES, and RMCA will also resume normal activities for Wednesday, April 17.


    We thank you for your trust and understanding.


    Sincerely,


    David Nancarrow

    Director of Communications
