Paradox School Threat Investigation Continues


3/23/2018 UPDATE: The MCSO concluded its investigation and determined that the threat to the Paradox Valley School was unfounded. The MCSO would like to thank the Paradox Valley School and public for its cooperation during this incident. Any threat regarding the school safety is taken seriously and investigated fully to ensure safety of the schools within Montrose County. The MCSO encourages the the public to report any and all concerns of school violence to law enforcement or through the Safe2Tell program.


Montrose, COLO.—The Montrose County Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate a threat to the Paradox Valley School in western Montrose County. The threat was called into the San Miguel County Sheriff's Office earlier this morning prior to the start of school. As such, families were contacted and told to keep their children home that had not left for school. In a measure of extreme caution, the school was immediately placed on lock down with a limited number of students. Students traveling to school via school bus were sheltered in place at a safe location and being reunited with parents. The school is closed for the remainder of the day. At this time, the threat appears unsubstantiated; however the MCSO is continuing to investigate the complaint. Additional information will be provided as the investigation continues.
