Homecoming right around the corner
It's earlier than usual this year but it is Homecoming time for Alexandria Area High School.
This year's annual event will come with a few changes aimed at making it a more communitywide affair.
Coronation will take place in the evening rather than the school day to encourage community attendance. This year's Homecoming is also getting an early start this year and will take place the second week of school for students.
Registration deadline to participate in the parade is noon, Monday, Sept. 11.
The schedule for the week is as follows.
