There were two internal investigations into allegations of abusive behavior in the dance and vocal programs this school year.
Teachers Robert Styron and Scott Shively were originally placed on administrative leave earlier in January after allegations of discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
In a letter to school parents, principal William Kohut said both vocal instructors returned to their positions after "appropriate action."
Allegations of abuse painted the school's dance department as a toxic environment. Two teachers involved have voluntarily resigned from the school.
The coordinated protest was meant to mark one month since the deadly shooting in Florida.
“In the Heights,” which won the 2008 Tony for Best Musical, runs at the Denver high school through Sept. 16.
