Board of Education Statement about the Shootings on Feb. 13

Denver Public Schools Board of Education statement

The Board of Education is deeply saddened by today’s events near the campuses of Denver East High School and the Emily Griffith Campus. Our hearts are with all those involved, their families, friends, and our community. We are supporting Superintendent Marrero and his team in providing resources to students and employees who may be in need of assistance. In addition, the district will continue to collaborate with the Denver Police Department to determine why these events occurred and what measures can be put in place by the City of Denver, and our DPD partners to keep our streets safe.
