On Tuesday afternoon, a student reported a threat written on the wall in the boys bathroom at Webster Elementary School. School administration immediately investigated, identified and secured the student who wrote the message, and took appropriate disciplinary action. Law enforcement is currently investigating to determine the credibility of the threat.

Students and staff were never in any danger and we are confident that our school is safe.

We strongly encourage you to have a conversation with your child regarding school threats and the impact it has in our schools and our community. We take all threats very seriously and we are working with various community agencies to address these issues in the Pikes Peak Region.

As always, thank you for your support, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
