Colorado Speaks: Denver Public Schools, The Uvalde Foundation For Kids & School Violence
"The recent shooting has captured the attention of the Uvalde Foundation for Kids that formed after the tragic Texas shooting, prompting the group to launch its own investigation into what transpired at East High School.
The foundation director said he’s received 64 calls and emails from the community asking for their help, but when the foundation reached out to Denver Public Schools, they said thanks, but no thanks."
Ellie McGoldrick, a student at East High School told KDVR the violence is taking a toll on the student population. “This is the first time I’ve really ever been scared to go to school,” McGoldrick said. “It just doesn’t feel safe anymore. I feel like my safety is in danger, and I don’t trust that me or someone I care about won’t get harmed.”
