Falcon School District 49 was providing grief counselors Tuesday at the charter school attended by the 7-year-old twins of fallen El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick, said district spokesman David Nancarrow.
"We as a district are grieving with the rest of the community," he said. "When something like this happens, it's tragic. We respect every person who makes the sacrifice and dedication to protect our community every single day."
The family has requested privacy, Nancarrow said, adding, "We're respecting their privacy in how they want to grieve."
Flick, 34, was shot and killed Monday afternoon while working on an auto theft investigation at an apartment complex near Murray Boulevard and Galley Road.
