Police were sent to Alexandria City High School (ACHS) to respond to a possible brawl in the cafeteria.

Additional Alexandria Police Department (APD) units were requested at ACHS for a large fight in the cafeteria, according to scanner traffic.

Principal Alexander Duncan III said in an email to staff and families that police were brought in as a result of “student altercations.”

“This morning, there was additional police presence at the Alexandria City High School King Street campus resulting from student altercations,” Duncan said. “As a precaution, the Alexandria Police Department was called for assistance in the event that additional support might be needed.”

Police have been called multiple times over the years for brawls in Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) and ACHS in particular. There were 112 fights reported in ACPS last year.

In the email, Duncan said APD and school security assured the safety of all students and staff in the building after the events and modifications were made to the lunch schedule, but the regular schedule will resume after lunch.
