SPS Staff, Students, and Families, SPS Students and Parents, At approximately 1:34 pm today, Sterling Public School District (SPS) enacted our Crisis Plan and went into a district-wide Building Lockdown. This means students and staff stayed within their classrooms, inside the building. Please know that this lockdown was a result of a report of a suspicious person with what looked like a weapon, on a bike, near Sterling High School. Sterling Police Department responded to the call quickly and notified Sterling Public Schools at approximately 2:01 pm that it was safe to lift the district-wide Building Lockdown students and staff continued their regularly scheduled day. Thank you, Sterling Public Schools

announcement
At approximately 11:00 am today, Sterling Public School District (SPS) enacted our Crisis Plan and went into a district-wide Limited Access Lockdown. This means students and staff can continue with their normal school day, inside the building, but we carefully monitor those entering and exiting. Please know that this lockdown was at the request of the Sterling Police Department’s (SPD) Administration, and was done so due to a SPD traffic stop near Sterling High School. The safety of our students and our staff is our number one priority, and this traffic stop unveiled some potential safety concerns, therefore, SPD requested we go into lockdown status until the investigation could be concluded. SPD believes that this is an isolated incident and that it does not pose an immediate threat to any students or staff. They also reiterated that this is an ongoing investigation and they will release more information to SPS as it becomes available. When this occurs, I will further update stakeholders.

🌟 Important Notice for Parents! 🌟 As we step into the beautiful season of spring 🌸 , we want to draw attention to a common trend: attendance tends to decline during this time. It's crucial to address this issue as your child's consistent attendance remains the focus, especially as they approach important assessments and exams. How can you help? πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ Encourage your child to attend school every day, unless they are genuinely unwell. ⏰ Ensure your child arrives at school on time to make the most of each learning opportunity. πŸ“ž Communicate with us promptly if your child is unable to attend school due to illness or other reasons. We want to partner with you to improve attendance and continue the year strong! #attendancematters
