ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

While last week was bookended with another murder and the Superintendent Gregory Hutchings Jr.’s resignation — still the top story a week later — this week was a little quieter.

Alexandria City Public Schools and the City of Alexandria are working on a response to violence in local schools. The city is also working with regional partners on plans to get through the next few months of a Metro shutdown.

Also, because it’s Juneteenth this weekend, ALXnow won’t be publishing anything beyond Morning Notes on Monday. Have a good weekend!
