Quest's Weekly Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Over the course of the past two days, we have had two lock downs at the high school. Both lockdowns were in response to threatening statements written in a girl’s bathroom at school. It is important for you to know that we are working diligently to track down who wrote these statements. All camera video footage is being reviewed and students are being questioned by high school administration in efforts to find the person or persons responsible.   Once found, charges will be filed with the police and the student will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.   This unacceptable behavior has not only caused a disruption to our educational environment for students and teachers, it has negatively impacted their emotional health, and their trust in the safety of our school.  I would like to reassure you and your student that providing our students with a safe and secure learning environment is our number one priority.

There have been many false rumors going around via social media and the press, that I would like to lay to rest. There has been no bomb threat made to the school and there has been no weapon found in the school as part of these incidents.

If you or your child has any information that will assist us in this matter, please call the high school and ask to speak with an administrator at 303-857-7100. If you wish to remain anonymous you can call safe2tell at 1-877-542-7233.

I would like to invite any parents and guardians, who are interested in discussing the safety of the high school, to meet with me and my administrative staff on Wednesday, February 28th at 6:30pm in the high school auditorium.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation,

Marcia Hester


Today at 9:50 a.m., on February 22, 2018, Fort Lupton High School received a Safe to Tell tip indicating that there was a message that caused concern in a bathroom on campus at Fort Lupton High School.  Fort Lupton Police Department was already in the school providing additional safety and security.  The decision was made to place the high school on lockdown during the investigation.  During the lockdown at the high school the decision was made to lock out the three other schools on the Weld Re-8’s main campus.  After completing the investigation the lock down and lock out was lifted at 10:30 a.m.  The safety and welfare of all students and staff is our number one priority.  Thank you. 

At 9:20 a.m. on February 21, 2018, Fort Lupton High School was placed on a lock down based on information received by administration.  Fort Lupton Police Department was immediately contacted and was on scene quickly to investigate the threat. 


At 10:30 a.m. the high school was released from lock down based on the investigation finding no credible threat.  All other schools in Weld Re-8 School District were placed on lock out as a precaution.  Weld Re-8 School District places students and staff safety as our number one priority.  To alleviate community and school concerns, there will be increased police presence throughout the course of today and days to come.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this incident.


Dear Weld Re-8 Families,

I want to take a few minutes to reassure each of you that after the recent tragedy in Parkland, Florida, we continue to place the safety and security of our students, staff and community at the forefront of our daily decisions.  There are no words that describe the feelings experienced as a result of the tragedy.  As educators, we spend time thinking about the safety of your children daily and will review our safety plans district-wide.

With the passage of the 2016 Bond, every building in our district has a controlled entrance where visitors enter into an area that has cameras and are greeted by an adult who confirms their identity.  This safety feature provides a Weld Re-8 employee to determine whether the individual should enter the building.

This year, Fort Lupton Police Department has provided our District with a School Resource Officer who is responsible for the needs of our students and staff under the law.  This added police officer works with our district security officer to provide for the proactive education of our students and their safety.

In addition, each of our employees is trained in the School Response Protocol which is accepted nationwide as the protocol used for the safety of schools and students.  Your child has been a part of trainings around the various types of incidents inside the protocol. 

We will continue to partner with our local police and mental health providers to provide resources for our schools.  We have trained counselors and a Mental Health Team that is always available for our community.  My thoughts are with the community in Florida, our educators, and you as parents attempting to make sense of this with your child. 

We all understand that the vigilance of our parents, students, staff and neighbors is the very best safety measure there is. Students can go to www.Safe2Tell.org or call 877-542-7233 to anonymously report anything that concerns or threatens them, their friends, family or school community.

Yours Truly,
