LITTLETON, Colo. — Police were investigating a threat at Columbine High School shortly after 11 a.m. on Thursday, Jefferson County Public Schools said.
No injuries or obvious danger were reported, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said. They characterized the threats, received via phone, as “generic.”
Columbine-area schools were on precautionary lockout status, the district said. This means no one is allowed in or out, but classes go on as normal inside.
The lockouts were canceled about 2:13 p.m. after police found no real danger in the area.
Affected schools include Blue Heron, Columbine Hills, Dutch Creek, Governor’s Ranch, Leawood and Normandy elementary schools; Ken Caryl Middle School and Columbine High.
