Elementary School Information Sessions

Kindergarten Information Night was held on Jan. 27, 2020 at 7 p.m., at Washington-Liberty High School (1301 N. Stafford St.), where families learned about the registration process and and the neighborhood and option schools for the 2020-21 school year. Watch the Kindergarten Information Night video or view the PowerPoint presentation.

Update: Some of the elementary schools that were unable to host their second school information session for parents in April before the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close will be hosting virtual information sessions for families in June. During these virtual information sessions, attendees will be able to learn more about the school, engage with the school’s principal, and participate in a questions and answers session. Visit the following link for the details of the information sessions: www.apsva.us/post/virtual-elementary-school-information-sessions.
