Local

PUEBLO, Colo. — Goodnight School in Pueblo is being evacuated Thursday morning due to a bomb threat made to the school, according to District 60.

Pueblo Police are interviewing a person of interest. Officers said it all started with a voicemail. Police said a computerized voice indicated there was a bomb in the drainage pipes of the school. The school was then evacuated.

Parents were asked to pick up their kids from the State Fair Events Center starting at 10 a.m. Parents, guardians, or emergency contacts should bring proof of photo identification, and be listed as an approved contact on the student’s file before students are released. Parents are asked to use the Beulah entrance of the State Fairgrounds and use door two upon arrival. 

The district said all students are safe, and they’re asking for patience as they work to reunite students with their parents.

Pueblo Police and the bomb squad cleared the school and the process was complete about 1 p.m. The incident remains under investigation.

The district sent the following note to parents:

Attention Goodnight K-8 Parents, 

This is an important message to inform you that, due to a threat made to the Goodnight school, we have transported all Goodnight students to the State Fair Events Center and will be conducting a parent reunification process. All students are safe and we are acting in an abundance of caution at this time. 

We will be releasing Goodnight K-8 students to parents beginning at 10:00 from the State Fair Events Center.
