Two schools in Centennial — Newton Middle School and Endeavor Academy high school — are associated with recent reported threats that resulted in two students arrested, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office.
Reports came in to the sheriff's office Jan. 24 for threats involving a Newton Middle student and Feb. 15 for an Endeavor Academy student, one day after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17. Reports of threats have rung out related to schools across the Denver metro area and other parts of Colorado in the weeks since the shooting.
The reported threat at Endeavor Academy involved statements that were days and even months old, said Julie Brooks, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office. That school sits at 14076 E. Briarwood Ave. in the Cherry Creek School District.
At Newton Middle, the report came to the sheriff's office through Safe2Tell, an anonymous reporting platform. Newton Middle sits at 4001 E. Arapahoe Road in the Littleton Public Schools district.
The reports at Endeavor Academy came from students telling school officials.
One student from each school was arrested for interference with faculty, staff or students of an educational institution.
The threats at Endeavor Academy were reportedly similar to “shooting up a school,” Brooks confirmed. The sheriff's office did not elaborate on the Newton Middle threats due to the ongoing court process.
No guns were brought to school in either incident.
