Poll: How satisfied are you with ACPS reopening?

Alexandria students returned to classrooms for a full five-day school week last Tuesday, marking the start of what could hopefully be the first full year in-school since the pandemic started in early 2020.

Across the school division, Alexandria City Public Schools faced a series of hurdles — from extremely minor like a fox in the vicinity of a middle school to more serious, like a violent brawl in Alexandria City High School.

Four days before reopening, the School Board voted to require vaccination for staff, or that staff submit weekly COVID-19 tests.

Superintendent Gregory Hutchings has faced some criticism for his handling of school administration by former ACPS employees, but the School Board recently approved a contract renewal for Hutchings and included vocal support for the superintendent.
