Note on bathroom stall brings cops to high school

Carrie ClickWestern Garfield County Bureau Editor

PARACHUTE – A threatening note scrawled on one of the girls’ bathroom stalls at Grand Valley High School brought Parachute police officers to school Thursday afternoon.Garfield School District No. 16 public relations director Sandy Hansen said school officials called police immediately after the note was discovered between 2 and 2:30 p.m. Hansen declined to reveal the contents of the note, because the case is currently under investigation. She said police questioned some students, and are now trying to find out who wrote the note. Because the note was discovered relatively late in the school day, Hansen said, school officials didn’t have time to write a letter for students to take home to parents about the incident. Officials planned to send a letter home with students on Friday, she said.Hansen said this is the second time this school year that police have had to be called for a potentially threatening situation at the high school.”It’s not a common occurrence at all,” she said.
