Roosevelt High School closed for the day after receiving threat

KUSA - After becoming aware of a potential threat to the school early Monday morning, officials decided to close Weld County's Roosevelt High School for the day, including all afterschool activities held on campus.

Dr. Martin Foster, Superintendent of Schools for Weld RE-5J School District, says they consulted with the Johnstown Police Department and decided more time was needed to asses the credibility of the threat.

The school plans to reopen Tuesday with additional police officers on campus.
