No School - April 17

Good Morning AXL Families.

As a precaution, AXL Academy will be closed today, April 17. There will be no school so we can ensure all scholars are kept safe.

This was a collective decision made by superintendents across the Denver metro area. Law enforcement continues to look for an individual, 18-year-old Sol Pais, who is considered armed and dangerous. She has made a threat against schools in general. Her name, description and photograph have been shared widely in the media. She was last seen in the foothills of Jefferson County.

The FBI has set up a tip line for any information about the suspect’s whereabouts. Those with information are encouraged to call 303-630-6227 or email

Please know that APS will continue to work closely with the Aurora Police Department. At this time, we do not have any information about a specific threat involving any APS schools.

Schools across the Denver metro area will be closed on April 17 as school districts and law enforcement continue to plan for additional safety and security supports. We will provide you with more information as it becomes available.

Thank you for your patience and continued support. Please know that the safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority.
