VIDEO: Teacher on leave after threatening message to students goes viral


COMMERCE CITY, Colorado (KRON/CNN) — A Colorado teacher is in hot water after a classroom photo of a message apparently threatening his students went viral.

Kris Burghart is accused of writing the message, “Silent reading. I want to kill children, so please sit down and read,” to his eighth-grade class.

It was then projected onto a screen in the classroom. 

Parents who have seen the alleged note are on edge.

They say after the first message, the teacher put it up a second time.

In response, the school district has placed Burghart on leave.

There is no word if police in Colorado are investigating this incident.
