ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

It was a relatively quiet week in Alexandria post-parade, with most eyes fixed on the unfolding situation in Ukraine.

Around town, there were a few notable businesses closing, like Kiskadee in Del Ray, and a couple openings, like Bob and Edith’s in Old Town early next week.

As the city heads into the last weekend in February, the Alexandria School Board also unanimously approved bringing Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) regulations into line with requirements that masks be considered optional in schools.
