    Dear Sand Creek High School Family,

    D49 safety and security along with SCHS administrators and our law enforcement partners at the Colorado Springs Police Department are actively monitoring reports submitted through Safe2Tell related to a recent rumor circulating regarding SCHS. Continued talk and posts on social media are adding to the speed to which this unsubstantiated rumor is spreading. This evening our investigation into this rumor has determined there is no credible threat to the safety of students, staff, or the SCHS campus. We are working with our law enforcement partners to support the student who has been the subject of social media speculation. 

    Out of an abundance of caution, our law enforcement partners and D49 safety and security will have an increased presence at SCHS Thursday, November 7. Please see Leadership Updates for more information.

    Dear Sand Creek High School Families,

    This evening D49 safety and security received reports through Safe2Tell about a rumored threat to SCHS circulating recently through social media. Our safety and security team, working closely with SCHS administrators and our law enforcement partners at the Colorado Springs Police Department, interviewed a student who is the source of the rumor. After speaking with the student and others with knowledge of the circulating story, our investigation determined there is no credible threat to the safety of students, staff, or the SCHS campus. Please see leadership updates for more information.

    Dear Sand Creek High School Families,
     
    On Tuesday at approximately 10:00 a.m. our law enforcement partners at the CSPD told SCHS administrators as well as D49 safety and security about a scheduled police operation taking place in a nearby neighborhood. Following the guidance from CSPD, and out of an abundance of caution, administrators initiated a lockout status at SCHS as well as at the Creekside Success Center as police continued their investigation. Students and staff remained inside the buildings, and the schools restricted visitors, which follows our lockout procedures. Click here fore more information.

  • 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
