Dear Sabin Families,
We are aware of a threat to Sabin Middle School. We believe it is non-credible, and we are currently investigating this issue. We are working closely with Colorado Springs Police and District 11 Security. There will be an increased security presence at Sabin all day today.
With the heightened environment after yesterday's news out of Texas, please know you may keep your student home today if you choose. It is the last day of school, and they will not be penalized for their absence.
We take all threats very seriously, regardless of the circumstances. Thank you for your partnership in helping us to keep all children safe.
If you have additional information regarding this situation, please contact the Safe2Tell tip line at 1 (877) 542-7233 or visit safe2tell.org. Thank you.
