Absences will be excused if parents choose to keep children at home due to air quality, road closures, or wildfire activity in their area.

On Thursday, August 22, 2019, Cooper Landing School will start the day with a two-hour delay start. The final determination about a full day closure will be made no later than 9:00 AM.

If a full day closure is warranted, an announcement is made through the district website, social media, mobile app, school communications, and media partners.

All other KPBSD schools will open on Thursday, August 22, 2019, on a normal schedule.
