Dear East High School Families

April 17, 2018

Dear East High School Families,

It is our priority to keep you informed about matters related to our school. You may hear in the media that the Denver District Attorney filed misdemeanor charges against five current and former East High School officials for failure to report an alleged sexual assault between two students that occurred off-campus in March 2016. Please know that, in addition to working with Denver police in the investigation of these allegations, we are doing all we can to support our students and families at East and throughout the district.

We know how important it is to ensure that any student who has concerns about inappropriate or unlawful sexual behavior be fully supported and that concerns about abuse be promptly reported to law enforcement. As you know, we have strong policies and procedures in place to support students and are committed to ensuring a safe learning environment in our schools.

Our records here indicate that our employees did notify the Denver Police Department of this incident in March 2016. We will continue to work with the Police and District Attorney going forward to understand better their concerns in this case.

We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all our students, at East High School and throughout Denver Public Schools. We will provide additional information when we can.

I want to thank you for your support, patience and continued commitment to the students and families of East High School. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have questions or concerns.

Estimadas familias de la Escuela Preparatoria East:

Nuestra prioridad es mantenerlos informados sobre los asuntos relacionados con nuestra escuela. Es posible que escuchen en los medios de comunicación que la Oficina del Fiscal del Distrito de Denver presentó cargos por un delito menor contra cinco oficiales actuales y anteriores de la Escuela Preparatoria East por no informar sobre una supuesta agresión sexual entre dos estudiantes que tuvo lugar fuera del campus en marzo de 2016. Queremos que sepan que, además de colaborar con la Policía de Denver en la investigación de estas alegaciones, estamos haciendo todo lo posible por apoyar a nuestros estudiantes y familias de East y de todo el Distrito.

Sabemos lo importante que es garantizar que cualquier estudiante que tenga alguna inquietud sobre una conducta sexual inapropiada o ilícita debe recibir pleno apoyo y que dicha inquietud de agresión debe reportarse sin demora a las autoridades. Como saben, contamos con normas y procedimientos sólidos para apoyar a los estudiantes y tenemos el compromiso de garantizar un entorno de aprendizaje seguro en nuestras escuelas.

Nuestros registros indican que nuestros empleados sí comunicaron este incidente al Departamento de Policía de Denver en marzo de 2016. Seguiremos trabajando con la policía y con el fiscal del Distrito de ahora en adelante para entender sus inquietudes respecto a este caso.

Tenemos el compromiso de garantizar la seguridad y el bienestar de todos nuestros estudiantes de la Escuela Preparatoria East y de todas las escuelas que forman parte de las Escuelas Públicas de Denver. Les ofreceremos más información cuando podamos.

Quiero agradecer su apoyo, paciencia y continuo compromiso con los estudiantes y las familias de la Escuela Preparatoria East. No duden en comunicarse conmigo si tienen alguna pregunta o inquietud.
