Dear Sand Creek Zone Families,


On Wednesday at approximately 1:19 p.m. our law enforcement partners at the CSPD told SCHS administrators and the SCHS SRO a person who is considered armed and dangerous was seen in the area. Administrators initiated a lockout status at SCHS, Remington Elementary School, Springs Ranch Elementary School and Creekside Success Center as police searched the surrounding neighborhoods. Students and staff remained inside the buildings, and the schools restricted visitors, which follows our lockout procedures.


The CSPD continues to search the area for anything suspicious. Schools are operating as normal during the investigation and our students and staff are safe. D49 will provide updated information when it is available.


D49 thanks our law enforcement partners and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert and report any suspicious activity. We’ll continue to be proactive and partner with local law enforcement to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner.
