A phone threat was made against George Washington High School Wednesday afternoon that, after an investigation, was found to be false, the principal said in a letter sent home to parents.

Denver Police and DPS Department of Safety responded and began an investigation that led them to believe the threat was unfounded, according to Principal Scott Lessard.

Below is the full text of the letter sent home to parents Wednesday:

I would like to assure you that the safety and well-being of our students is our No. 1 priority at George Washington High School. Our school works closely with the Department of Safety and the Denver Police Department 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 helping us to keep our school a safe place of learning for our students.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Estimadas familias de la Escuela Preparatoria George Washington:

Nuestra prioridad es mantenerlos informados sobre los incidentes que se relacionan con la seguridad estudiantil. Hoy, la Policía de Denver nos informó que recibieron una llamada telefónica en la que se profería una amenaza contra nuestra escuela. La Policía de Denver y el Departamento de Seguridad de DPS llevaron a cabo una rápida investigación y hallaron que la amenaza carecía de fundamento.

Quisiera garantizarles que la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes es nuestra máxima prioridad en la Escuela Preparatoria George Washington. Nuestra escuela trabaja 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.

Agradezco su apoyo a la hora de ayudar a que nuestra escuela sea un lugar seguro de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes.

Como siempre, no duden en comunicarse conmigo si tienen alguna pregunta.

Atentamente.

Scott Lessard

Director
