Dear Odyssey Elementary School & ALLIES Families, On Friday, at approximately 1:45 p.m., our law enforcement partners at the CSPD told OES and ALLIES administrators, as well as D49 safety and security about an active investigation in a nearby neighborhood of the school. Following the guidance from CSPD, and out of an abundance of caution, administrators immediately initiated a lockout. Students and staff remained inside the buildings, and the school restricted visitors, which follows our lockout procedures.
OES and ALLIES carried on with regular activities indoors as our partners at CSPD carried out their mission, and our students and staff remained safe.
At 2:10 p.m. the lockout was lifted, which will allow for normal dismissal procedures to take place.
D49 thanks our law enforcement partners and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert and report any suspicious activity. We will stay proactive and partner with local law enforcement to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner. Sincerely,
