Dear Los Alamos High School Family,

Recently, the Los Alamos High School administration was made aware of some graffiti on our campus that indicated a potential threat to the school. Details of the threat and identity of the writer is unknown.

We are in the midst of conducting a thorough investigation. The Los Alamos Police Department has been contacted, a report has been filed, and we have provided our teachers with information that will allow them to assist with the investigation.  We will continue with due diligence and follow through with heightening security awareness and protocols recommended by the police.

Please remember that we take any and all possible threats to our school community seriously. The health and safety of our students and staff is our school’s primary concern. We do not tolerate threats against the school and pranks about school safety. We will prosecute any such cases to the full extent of the law. 

We would like to remind our students, parents and community members that if you ever see something that appears suspicious in our school, please notify our Security Office 505.663.2517 or an adult in the building immediately. Thank you for remaining vigilant and working with us to keep Los Alamos High School safe and secure.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 505.663.2516.

All the Best,
