Due to Gov. Ralph Northam’s stay at home order, school registration dates in Alexandria are being pushed back.
The most immediate impact is registration for kindergarten. The start date for 2020-2021 kindergarten registration is now May 15, a month later than originally planned.
“Kindergarten registration is divided into two separate parts,” ACPS explained in a newsletter. “Step 1 is the completion of the forms. Step 2 is the in-person verification of required documents. Both need to be completed for a child to be registered for the start of the next school year.”
Registration requires in-person presentation of forms, which will be available at food distribution locations or can be printed off from the ACPS website.
A tentative date of June 15 is also set for the start of in-person verification of required documents, though ACPS noted this is conditional on Northam lifting the stay-at-home order.
Students can also register for the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) program by calling 703-619-8026 or emailing [email protected]acps.k12.va.
The schools also will not be enrolling students coming into the school system from outside Alexandria until June 15 but said those students should still feel welcome to the local school community.
“Students wishing to register with ACPS will be offered a learning packet with grade-appropriate activities and will continue to be welcomed into the school community between now and June 15, 2020,” ACPS said.
