Dear Contemporary Learning Academy Families:


It is our priority to keep you informed of incidents related to student safety. This letter is to let you know that about an incident that took place off campus. Earlier today, Denver police and the DPS Department of Safety received a report of a shooting that involved a juvenile. The shooting is still under investigation by the Denver Police Department. The victim is a CLA student. The student is dealing with non-life-threatening injuries. The parents of the student have been notified.


I would like to assure you that the safety and well-being of our students are our number one priority at CLA. Our schools works closely with the Department of Safety and DPD to report all safety incidents that occur at our school and anything suspicious that may occur in the neighborhood.


Thank you for your support in keeping our students and school safe. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Estimadas familias de la Academia de Aprendizaje Contemporáneo:


Nuestra prioridad es mantenerlos informados sobre los incidentes que se relacionan con la seguridad estudiantil. Esta carta es para informarles sobre un incidente que tuvo lugar fuera de las instalaciones escolares. Hoy temprano, la Policía de Denver y el Departamento de Seguridad recibieron un informe sobre un tiroteo que involucró a un menor. Aún sigue bajo investigación el tiroteo. La víctima es un estudiante de CLA. Las lesiones del estudiante no son mortales. Nos hemos comunicado con los padres del estudiante en cuestión.


Quiero que tengan la certeza de que la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes es la principal prioridad en CLA. Nuestras escuelas trabajan estrechamente con el Departamento de Seguridad y con el Departamento de Policía de Denver para informar de todos los incidentes de seguridad que tengan lugar en nuestra escuela y de cualquier actividad sospechosa que ocurra en el vecindario.


Gracias por su apoyo a la hora de garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes. Como siempre, no duden en comunicarse con nosotros si tienen alguna pregunta o inquietud.
