PVHS Community Update

Oct. 2, 2021

Dear Prairie View High School Families,

We are committed to letting you know about incidents that affect our school and our community. At Friday night’s football game between the Thunderhawks and the Far Northeast Warriors, someone in the home stands stated loudly that someone had a gun. This caused panic in the stands. Shortly after that, someone set off firecrackers near the field. This increased the level of panic.

Members of the faculty and staff of both schools, along with the DPS Department of Safety and Denver police, worked to calm the crowds. Law enforcement looked into the claim that there was a weapon at the game. They have determined that there was no evidence of any gun or gunshots fired.

If anyone was at the game and feels they need mental health support, please contact Mr. Burke. Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.


Mike Burke
