Bomb threat shuts down Aspen High School

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – A bomb threat has closed Aspen High School until 10 a.m. Thursday. Aspen Middle and Elementary schools will operate as usual.

According to Superintendent John Maloy, a bomb threat was found written on a restroom wall at the high school late Wednesday afternoon. The threat indicated the incident would occur in the “early morning” on Thursday.

Law enforcement and security personnel will remain on the scene through Thursday morning, and “a series of ‘sweeps’ will occur on Wednesday evening and again on Thursday morning before opening the high school to students and staff,” Maloy wrote in an e-mail blast to parents.

School buses will operate on their regular schedule; high school students riding the Thursday morning bus will wait at the District Theatre at the elementary school until the high school is reopened.

See Thursday’s Aspen Times for more on the incident.
