Greetings Remington Elementary School Families,
 
A fire alarm was activated this afternoon at approximately 1:35 p.m. RES administrators immediately evacuated the school. All students moved quickly and safely out of the building while our partners at the Colorado Springs Fire Department dispatched a crew to RES.
 
Administrators learned a student pulled the alarm, but there was no active fire and no threat to students or staff. Everyone safely returned to normal activities at 1:48 p.m., approximately 12 minutes after the initial alarm.    
 
D49 thanks our partners at the Colorado Springs Fire Department and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert for anything unusual. D49 will continue to be proactive and partner with first responders to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner.  
 
Sincerely,
 
David Nancarrow
Director of Communications
