DENVER — A student brought a firearm to Hill Campus of Arts & Sciences on Friday, according to a letter from the principal sent to school families.

The safety officer found a firearm in the student's backpack.

"Upon the discovery of a firearm, my team, along with the Department of Climate and Safety and The Denver Police engaged directly with the student involved and promptly contacted the student’s family," Williams wrote in her letter. "I want you all to know that appropriate disciplinary measures are being taken in accordance with the established policies and procedures of our school district."

No other details about the student or the discipline were immediately available Friday evening.
