Alexandria City High School Principal Peter Balas sent the following message to the Titan community after word of this weekend’s shooting in Arlandria.
Dear Titan Students, Families, and Friends,
I write to you today to alert you to an incident that has impacted our Titan community. This past weekend, you may have heard that there was a shooting that involved a male victim with non-life threatening injuries. Upon further investigation, we learned that the victim was one of our Alexandria City High School students. On behalf of the whole Titan community, I would like to express our support for the student and the family.
We have been in close contact with the Alexandria Police Department (APD) as they continue their active investigation. Please see the APD press release regarding this case. I appreciate your patience and understanding in communicating during an active police investigation.
The Titan staff will be available to support our Titans as they return to school on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
As always, please know that the Titan team is here to support you!
