In a letter to parents, Richard Peebles, St. Vrain Valley School District's executive director of Safety and Security, informed the community that there would be an increase of police presence at local schools today.

Through Safe2Tell reports the district has been warned that several social media posts circulating across the United States "suggest a generalized school safety treat" at schools today. 

Safe2Tell is a hotline through which members of the community can anonymously report concerns or threats for students, families or the community, according to the SVVSD website.

Across the nation, school districts are responding to a TikTok post promoting school violence today.

"These posts are not specific to any of our schools in St. Vrain, and are part of a viral national trend that is impacting school districts across the country. Through an investigation, our local law enforcement partners have informed us that they do not believe these threats are credible. However, out of an abundance of caution, we will have an increased law enforcement presence throughout our community on Friday," Peebles said in the email. 

Peebles asks parents with further questions or concerns to reach out to their school's principal.
