CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Arapahoe High School students in Colorado are returning to school for the first time since a fatal Dec. 13 shooting on campus.

According to the Denver Post principal Natalie Pramenko sent a letter to parents saying additional deputies from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office will be at the campus and extra school district staff members will be on hand to help students as the school reopens on Tuesday.

School district officials did not respond to a request for more information.

Students have not attended classes since Karl Pierson, a senior at Arapahoe, entered the school through a door that was propped open and fatally shot Claire Davis before killing himself.

Investigators say Pierson may have had a grudge against one of the teachers.
