Rockport Heights Elementary School students and staff were evacuated at about noon Monday (Sept. 20), when a fire alarm went off, Principal Janine Hueter said in a letter to parents.
She said the alarm went off because work was being done to a rooftop HVAC unit, which may have created some smoke.
She said all students and staff were quickly and safely evacuated and accounted for, and about 10 minutes later were allowed to re-enter the building after Rock Community Fire Protection District personnel inspected the building.
“The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority,” Hueter said. “I want to thank my students, staff, and families for their patience and understanding during this brief disruption. In following our district policies and procedures, we were able to maintain the safety and security of our staff and students.”
The school is at 3871 Jeffco Blvd. and is one of 11 elementary schools in the Fox C-6 School District.
