DENVER — Politicians and community leaders in Colorado are reacting to news of the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school Friday.
Denver Public Schools superintendent Tom Boasberg released a statement saying “This is a time of intense sorrow and anxiety for all school communities.”
Boasberg talked about security measures at Denver schools including how every school restricts building access to one door, which must be monitored at all times during the school day.
“We will be working with all schools in the coming days to emphasize the importance of vigilance on all safety issues and doing regular reviews with staff of all safety plans,” he said.
DPS spokeswoman Kristy Armstrong said school officials wanted to maintain a calm atmosphere so students were not told about the shooting.
