School officials were made aware of the bomb threat late on Wednesday and contacted the Denver Police Department and DPS Safety and Security.

In order to allow police officials to fully investigate the threat, Bruce Randolph was closed, and all school activities were canceled for Thursday. That included the closure of the entire campus and all of its facilities to allow for the Police Department's full investigation.

"Safety is the highest priority at DPS, and we are working closely with the Denver Police Department to take all of the necessary safety precautions to protect the Bruce Randolph campus, students and staff. We will continue to update families, the community and media on the status of the investigation and when the campus will be reopened. We apologize to our families for any inconvenience created by this late notice, and we appreciate our community's understanding and cooperation," Kristy Armstrong with DPS' Office of Communications released.

According to 9NEWS Reporter Corey Rose, the bomb squad searched the school Wednesday night but did not find a bomb. Police decided to shut down the school as a precautionary measure. 

The school will reopen Friday after police determined there is no ongoing threat.

The name of the student and the charges the person may face has not been released.
