Columbine High closed today in memory of shooting victims

By Ramsey Scott

Columbine High School is closed Monday in memory of the 12 students and a teacher who lost their lives 16 years ago at the school.

The tradition of closing the school in honor of those that died was continued by new Columbine principal K.C. Somers, who replaced former principal Frank DeAngelis this year after DeAngelis retired.

DeAngelis was scheduled to be at the school’s library to lead a moment of silence at 11:20 a.m.
