Classes to Resume at Adams City High School on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022

Fire alarm red light

Sept. 21, 2022

Dear Adams 14 families and guardians,

On Tuesday evening, Adams 14 received notification of a threat of violence against Adams City High School (ACHS). Out of an abundance of caution, and to allow for a thorough investigation, the high school was closed for today. The Commerce City Police Department (CCPD) has investigated the threat against the school and concluded it was not substantiated. ACHS classes will resume as scheduled, Thursday, Sept. 22, with additional personnel and law enforcement presence to monitor the situation, per the district’s safety protocols. 

Adams 14 is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all. We understand that any threat of violence in our community can be stressful for our families, students, and staff. For this reason, there will be additional counselors available at the high school for the social and emotional support needs of both our students and staff. 

Please take this opportunity to speak with your student about the dangers of making a threat to use a weapon or bringing a weapon of any kind to school. All weapons are strictly prohibited on school property by any person with the exception of law enforcement professionals. The district will work with all local and federal agencies to prosecute any and all individuals who make a threat to the maximum extent of the law. We have a no-tolerance policy for any behavior that jeopardizes the well-being of our students and staff.

The safety and security of our students and staff are our top priority. If anyone has any information or questions about these or other threats, please feel free to contact the district, CCPD, or Safe2Tell (877-542-7233).
