Lockout lifted at Legacy High School after phone threats deemed not credible

BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Legacy High School was placed on lockout on Tuesday morning for about four hours after anonymous threats were made toward the Broomfield school, officials said.

In a letter to parents, principal Sara Marx said the school received phone calls threatening the school at 2701 W. 136th Ave.

At 1 p.m., police said the calls were determined to not be credible and the lockout was lifted. The school returned to a normal schedule for the rest of the afternoon.

The Broomfield Police Department and security with Adams 12 Five Star investigated the origin of the calls and indicated they originated from out of state.
