Thank you to all who worked so hard on this situation. I always have great faith that the JEFFCO security team knows what they are doing and I trust their expertise. Also, a big thanks to all the teachers, administrators, support staff and everyone else who helped keep our students safe yesterday. You all deserve a huge group hug!  – Jodi Lundin

Eternally grateful for the folks who make up our local law enforcement (& FBI) and our Jeffco Schools Security team. In Jeffco we are fortunate to dedicated folks who live by the credo ” Not on my watch”. Thank you! ❤️ – Jonna Levine

I just can’t thank you enough. While not knowing where this person was felt quite unsettling, I was greatly comforted knowing that our community was in the best of hands with all the different agencies from our districts right through the police and FBI. You took care of the community. I hope that now is the time you take care of yourselves.  – Carolyn Wolfrum

A huge “thank you” to all law enforcement and Jeffco Schools Security team for protecting our children, schools, and community! – Michele Patterson

Not an easy situation to handle. I’m sure there are many things we (the public) still does not know. Appreciate all the time and effort that has been given keeping our community safe. Unfortunate, but Thank You, Jeffco, School Members, Officers and all involved. – Leigh Mattson

Thank you for your actions today, April 17, and for putting the safety of students, teachers, and all school staff members first. As a parent and a teacher, it is so reassuring to know there is such a wonderful, competent, responsive team looking out for what is most important — the safety of everyone in every school building in Jeffco. I cannot thank you enough for all you did and continue to do each and every day. –  Tami LoSasso

I’m so grateful to law enforcement and our school administrators for acting to keep our kids safe today!  – Amy Nitta

This is one of those few cases where you actually hope you don’t have to prove how incredible your system is, but ours is amazing, and our security team and law enforcement agents could not have done a better job of keeping our kids safe. We are sometimes quick to complain, and slow to give thanks, but we all owe a debt of gratitude to our incredible Security team, and to John Mcdonald. – Nina Banks

Thank you to everyone involved. We appreciate you. – Mari Vasel

My family is deeply grateful to Jeffco security, and the Jeffco admin team that made quick decisions and actions to keep our entire Jeffco family safe.

We applaud you and hope you feel our deep gratitude for all you do. – Darcy Wood
