DENVER (CBS4) – Things are back to normal at East High School after a report of a gun in the building.
Denver police searched the school Wednesday morning after a student texted Safe2Tell saying someone had a weapon.
“We’re pleased that this student had this information and brought it to our attention,” said Denver Public Schools spokesman Will Jones. “That’s the purpose of Safe2Tell — we want our students and faculty members to feel empowered if they feel uncomfortable. To make sure the appropriate authorities get that information.”
The school locked all the doors, including classrooms, but instruction continued during the search.
It took about an hour to clear the school and no weapon was found.
