Afternoon Incident In School Parking Lot Required Trooper Intervention; Was Witnessed By Students & Teachers, District Says



School District Urges Parents To Talk To Their Children Or, If Necessary, To Seek CRNA Counseling


A domestic violence incident that took place after school in the Glennallen School parking lot on Wednesday, September 21st 2022, required Alaska State Trooper intervention, the school district has said.

Jason Williams, Glennallen's upper school principal, told the Journal the next day that it was "... a serious incident -- when you have to call the police that's serious enough."

The incident was witnessed by school children and staff. But, Williams, said, he was "not sure how many teachers and kids saw it." The domestic violence incident was reported to him by children who were at the elementary school end of the campus at the time it took place, he said.

Principal Williams did not describe exactly what happened.

However, apparently it was bad enough. On the school district's Facebook site, soon after, both principals at Glennallen School – Frances Jackson and Jason Williams – put out a joint statement. They urged parents to help their children recover by talking to them and to "comfort them through this time."

Principal Williams told the Journal, "Any student that witnessed the incident, especially elementary... have them talk to their parents. They may be traumatized by the event." 

He added, "If more help is needed go to CRNA." 

The Copper River Native Association has a counselor.
