It is our priority to keep you informed of events regarding student safety. Earlier today, we received information about a threat in the local area. Out of an abundance of caution, DPS Safety & Security took measures to secure the perimeter of the school until we received information that there was no more need for concern.
CLA was never in an active threat situation; however, we wanted to prioritize the safety of our students and staff by issuing a Secure Perimeter for our school.
We would like to assure you that the safety and well-being of our students is our top priority at CLA. Our school works closely with the Department of Safety & Security and Denver Police to look into all safety incidents that occur at our school and anything suspicious that may occur in the neighborhood.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our community about what resources are available for anyone who suspects danger to themselves or others. If you or your student hears of a threat made against another student or the school, we want them to report it immediately to a trusted adult, Safe2Tell at 877-542-7233, online at https://safe2tell.org, or the Denver police non-emergency number at 720-913-2000.
We thank you for your support in helping us to keep our school a safe place of learning for our students. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
