CHS Student Arrested for Firearm Possession on School GroundsPosted: Updated:
A notice was send out to families at Charlottesville High School at around 5 p.m on October 31:
Dear CHS families,
All students and staff are safe, but I wanted to give you a brief report. Today, two students were removed from our school by the Charlottesville Police. There was no altercation or any threat made to students or staff. Working with our school resource officers, administrators detained the two students in the school's offices and discovered a loaded firearm in one student's backpack. We and the Charlottesville Police take this incident very seriously, and the matter is now in the hands of the police. As always, our number one priority is safety, and we work closely with the police to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We understand that you will have additional questions, so we are planning a time for the CHS community to gather with administrators and police to discuss safety measures and address questions. Thanks for your partnership with the schools.
