Many of you have seen the social media posts in our community today suggesting possible threats to schools
in Montezuma County. The Cortez Police Department and Sheriff’s Department are aware of these reports,
including the Safe2Tell report, and have determined that there is no active threat to Cortez schools. The
Cortez Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department, and school district take all reports seriously and
investigate each one that comes in. Each family has the right to make the choice they feel is in the best
interest of their children with regards to attendance in these situations. Please know that all reports are
followed up on by law enforcement and if they determine there is a credible threat, the school district and
the police department will work together to quickly implement whatever additional security measures are
appropriate in each situation. We are grateful to our partners at the police department for partnering with
us to help keep our students safe.
Emotions are understandably running high right now. The rumors spreading on social media increase anxiety
among our students and families. If you have questions about school safety please contact the
Superintendent’s Office at 970-565-7282 x1119. If you believe there is a real threat, please call 911 or
contact Safe2Tell at 1-877-542-7233. Please know I am personally committed to the safety of all of our
students. If you have any concerns please contact me.

"With the passing of the 3A Ballot question, the district is prepared to move forward with demolishing the
retired high school. Our goal is to demolish the retired high school, repurpose the land for community use,
and upgrade the existing Panther Stadium. The demolition design has been completed and the district will be
soliciting bids to start the demolition process this winter. Thank you to the Retired High School Community
Committee and the City of Cortez for the work and support in being able to move forward to honor the district's
commitment to the community. It is a privilege to live in such a great community."
