Dear Parents of MCSD Students,
Given the nature and tone of the information shared with you yesterday morning, I would like to provide an update on the threat made against Moffat County High School. According to Craig Police Department Captain Bill Leonard, “The police department will continue to investigate, but there is no immediate danger.” Both students have been located by police; one is in custody in Craig, and the second is in custody at an undisclosed location out of state.
I want to take a quick moment to thank the Moffat County School District Staff and local law enforcement agencies for their service over the past two days. I am acutely aware of the emotion surrounding April 20th and past events in Colorado. Students take their cue from the caring adults in the schools. I was in schools yesterday and today and the staff and law enforcement consistently demonstrated composure and poise.
When I was informed of the threat I was both terrified and heartbroken. Unfortunately, this is a scenario that has played out all too frequently on the national stage. While we can never guarantee what the future holds, as parents of MCSD students, I hope you trust that the agencies and organizations tasked with keeping our students safe have strong relationships with open communication. It is my sincere hope that our students, staff, parents and community never endure an experience like this again.
Whether you sent your students to school today or elected to keep your students at home, please know that I respect your decision. We can’t wait to see everyone first thing Monday!
David Ulrich, Ed.D.
