Weld RE5J School District

No Lockdown in Weld RE-5J Schools - August 24, 2017

 
There have been some postings this morning on Facebook that have alarmed some parents who have in turn called some of our schools regarding a lockdown.  None of our schools are in any danger and we are not in a lockdown situation. 
 
Early this morning, the Johnstown Police Department was asked to patrol the area of southeast frontage and I25 on the report of a suspect or suspects (possibly armed) that had fled from a burglary at Cabela’s (guns were stolen).   The Police Department is no longer actively responding to this request as the search resulted in negative results and due to the extended length of time involved in the request. The School District will remain in contact with the Johnstown Police Department and will continue to monitor this matter.
 
Again, none of our schools are in any danger and we are not in a lockdown situation. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Marty Foster
