Students called Safe2Tell hotline to report threats at Cheyenne Mountain High School

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Springs police say dozens of students called the state's Safe2Tell hotline Thursday to report threats at their school.

The threats were allegedly made against several students at Cheyenne Mountain High School.

Police said officers went to a home at 7 p.m. Thursday night to check on the teenager accused of making the threats.

After meeting with the teen and the teen's parents, police said the school district was notified that, "the involved teenager is no longer a threat at this time and that the investigation is ongoing."

Friday, Colorado Springs police sent Denver7 a news release that said, "We do not consider Cheyenne Mountain High School to be under an immediate threat. We recognize community concerns about the safety of the students and we have increased our police presence at the school. We are in close communication with representatives from District 12 to facilitate a rapid response to any new developments."

The Safe2Tell website says the hotline was created to give students a way to report any threatening behaviors or activities endangering themselves or someone they know, in a way that keeps them safe and anonymous.
