Potential Trespasser Arrested at Herndon High School

Herndon High School/File photoHerndon High School officials said school police officers caught an unknown man trying to enter the building during school hours Monday morning.

As at all FCPS schools, the school’s doors are locked and visitors must be let in through an electronic camera system.

The man, who was not armed, was charged with trespassing, said Principal William Bates.

Here is the memo Bates sent to HHS families Monday afternoon:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

At 8:45 a.m. this morning, an unknown adult male was observed on school grounds attempting to enter the building.  A staff member located this individual near door #9 and radioed security for assistance. Our safety and security specialist along with the SRO [School Resource Officer] approached the individual who cooperated with the SRO’s instructions. The individual was taken into custody and charged with trespassing. The suspect did not have any weapons in his possession.

With the assistance of the Fairfax County Police Department and the FCPS Office of Safety and Security, we will continue to be diligent to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact the school office.
