Cooper Landing School: KPBSD will make a determination on Monday afternoon based on fire activity and recommendations from OEM if Cooper Landing School will open on Tuesday or postpone the first day of school. This decision and announcement will be made and communicated by Monday evening.
At this time, we anticipate all other KPBSD schools will open on Tuesday for the first day of school on a normal schedule.
KPBSD staff: if the Sterling Highway road closure impacts your ability to arrive to work at your scheduled time on Monday, contact your school administrator. The district recognizes this is a highly unusual and unpredictable fire event, and HR will work with staff who are stranded and unable to make it to work on time.
Nanwalek and Port Graham schools will open for the first day of school on Monday, August 19, 2019, on a normal schedule.
Shelter sites: Seward High School and the Soldotna Sports Center are open to stranded motorists and travelers. Thank you Seward High!
