The Alexandria Police Department is sweeping through the Alexandria City High School Minnie Howard campus after a bomb threat to the school.
The school is being evacuated while the Alexandria Police Department searches the building. ACPS said Minnie Howad students will be released early. Fourteen buses are en-route on the campus to pick up students on Braddock Road. Some parents are being asked to park at the nearby shopping center and walk to the school to avoid crowding.
Both schools were on lockdown earlier today after threats, and Alexandria City High School’s King Street campus remains on “secure the building” status. ACPS said this means the school day is operating on normal status inside the building, but no one is allowed to enter or leave the school campus.
