JUST IN: ACHS lockdown lifted after police investigate nearby car crash

A car crash near Alexandria City High School’s King Street campus briefly sent the school into “secure the building” status.

In an email, Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) said the school was put into secure status after three people ran towards the school post-crash.

“For the safety and security of our students and staff, the Alexandria City High School (ACHS) King Street Campus was briefly placed in ‘secure the building’ status today due to a car accident near the school that led to three subjects running in the direction of the school,” ACPS said in a release. “We have now returned to normal operations.”

The release said the “secure the building” status meant school operations continued inside the building but no one was allowed to enter or exit the school while it was being secured.

“The decision to secure the ACHS King Street campus was taken out of an abundance of caution, and the building was in this status for approximately 30 minutes,” ACPS said. “The Alexandria Police Department (APD) was on site assessing the situation, and we appreciate their quick response and collaboration with ACHS administration.”
