School Safety Lock Out/Secure Procedure on Aug 31, 2023
Parents/Guardians of Valley High School students,
**On August 31, 2023 at approximately 12:30pm it was determined by Valley High School administration, Weld County School District RE-1 administration, and the Platteville-Gilcrest Police Department that a credible threat to student safety existed outside of the Valley High School campus building. Therefore, a collective decision was made to put both Valley High School and Gilcrest Elementary School in a Lock Out or Secure procedure. At that time, all students were kept inside the school buildings to ensure their safety. Any students outside the school building returning from lunch or in transition between buildings were also gathered inside the building for safety. **
The potential threat was quickly dispelled and dealt with by the Platteville-Gilcrest Police Department and the Lock Out/Secure was lifted. Please rest assured that no students were in any immediate danger. This procedure was initiated with an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our students. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
