Stapleton Middle School News


​DSST Families,

​You may have seen some conflicting reports today, April 16, about threats to the Denver Metro Area that are currently being investigated. We received an alert from Denver Public Schools approximately five minutes before our middle school dismissal that prompted us to briefly enter into a lockout until we were sure that we were cleared and could dismiss as normal. We still added extra staff presence outside and adjusted after-school activities in order to err on the side of caution. We will be following vigilant procedures today to ensure that all students get home safely. Staff will remain present on all campuses until
all students have safely left the building.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of your children, and will keep you updated if anything changes.


Es posible que haya visto algunos informes contradictorios hoy, 16 de abril, sobre amenazas al área metropolitana de Denver que se están investigando actualmente. Recibimos una alerta de las Escuelas Públicas de Denver aproximadamente cinco minutos antes de nuestra salida de la escuela intermedia, lo que nos llevó a entrar brevemente en un cierre patronal hasta que estuviéramos seguros de que estuviéramos autorizados y pudiéramos despedirnos como de costumbre. Seguimos agregando la presencia de personal adicional en el exterior y ajustamos las actividades extraescolares para errar por el lado de la precaución. Estaremos siguiendo procedimientos vigilantes hoy para garantizar que todos los estudiantes lleguen a casa de manera segura. El personal permanecerá presente en todos los campus hasta que todos los estudiantes hayan abandonado el edificio de manera segura.

Tenga la seguridad de que estamos haciendo todo lo posible para garantizar la seguridad de sus hijos, y lo mantendremos informado si algo cambia.
