Alexandria City High School goes to ‘secure the building’ status after threat

All Alexandria City High School (ACHS) campuses have gone into a “secure the building” status while the Alexandria Police Department (APD) investigates a threat to the school.

According to a release from ACPS:

For the safety and security of our students and staff, all four Alexandria City High School (ACHS) campuses-King Street, Minnie Howard, Satellite and Chance for Change-are currently on “secure the building” status. Since the Satellite Campus is in the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) Central Office, we have taken the precaution to place the Central Office building on “secure the building” status. This is due to a reported threat of violence, which is being investigated by the Alexandria Police Department (APD).

The school day continues as normal inside the school, but no one is allowed to enter or leave the building. Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) said the Alexandria Police Department is on-site and has additional officers en route to each campus.

“We appreciate the work of the APD and we will provide an update once the APD has determined next steps,” ACPS said in a release. “More details will be shared as information becomes available. The safety and security of our students and staff are a priority. We will continue to communicate to provide families with the most up-to-date information.”
