To the Dolores Students, Staff and Community.
The Dolores admin team would like to reassure you of the safety of our school. There is ongoing training with law enforcement and the Sheriff Departments deputies on the layout of the schools. We also are starting best practice safety procedures to create the safest environment possible. All exterior doors will remain locked during the school day. Teachers will be at outside doors during passing period. Please use the front office doors for entry into the building.. We want to be proactive not reactive to any unsafe situations that may arise in the future. We are instituting these procedures in conjunction with safety team recommendations.
We have received several calls and messages about rumors of threats to our school this year. We take every call seriously, and with the help of the Montezuma county sheriff’s office, we investigate every report. We have been able to investigate and found that none of the rumors to date have been credible. Please know that your school administration, teachers, and law enforcement take the safety of our school very seriously and will continue to do so.
We encourage you to contact us regarding any safety concerns you might have. We would rather know about the rumors and concerns, and be able to follow up on them than not know. Anyone can also report to Safe2Tell, and remain anonymous.
