DENVER — North Denver’s Bruce Randolph School, which serves grades six through 12, will be closed Thursday while police investigate a bomb threat made against the Denver Public School.

In a statement the school district said the entire campus at 3955 Steele Street will be closed to the public today in order to allow deputies to perform a full investigation.

“Safety is the highest priority at DPS, and we are working closely with the Denver Police Department to take all of the necessary safety precautions to protect the Bruce Randolph campus, students and staff,” the statement read.

The school district did not elaborate on the threat, nor did it give a timetable indicating when the school might reopen.

“We will continue to update families, the community and media on the status of the investigation and when the campus will be reopened,” DPS officials said.
