Alexandria City Public Schools has announced open house dates for parents of rising kindergarteners.
An open house is designed for parents to meet the school principal and staff and learn more about curriculum.
Kindergarten registration for ACPS will begin April 8. To be eligible for kindergarten for the 2013-14 school year, a child must be five years old on or before Sept. 30, 2013.
