Dear ACPS Families,
In following up on previous announcements regarding rumors involving T.C. Williams High School, I am pleased to report that today went smoothly.
Although rumors spread last week as a result of inappropriate student comments about the anniversary of the Columbine tragedy, the reality was that no direct threats were made and no police charges were filed. Because we understand the strong emotions surrounding even the slightest hint of danger at any of our schools, we worked closely with the Alexandria Police Department to increase the police presence today and for the remainder of the week. Additional security monitors were also provided.
Student safety remains our Number 1 priority. We work hard every day to ensure that every child and staff member is safe in school.
Students enrolled in criminal justice courses intern (ride along) with the Alexandria Police Department.
