Change to KPBSD School Start or End Times

News Release: Change to KPBSD School Start or End Times

School start or end times have changed for several Kenai Peninsula Borough School District schools when the school year begins August 24, 2020.*

These past two weeks, KPBSD staff totally focused on planning for the new school year with the Smart Start plan, and changes due to COVID19. Enrollment numbers and education delivery choices are becoming clear through the completion of returning student update forms, and school phone calls to families.

In order to provide quality onsite in schools and 100% remote learning, additional time for staff preparation, collaboration, and cleaning of buildings resulted in an adjusted student day for some of the 42 Kenai Peninsula Borough School District K-12 schools. The change in start or end time decision was determined on a school by school basis with district administration, site administration, and in consultation with Apple Bus, our transportation provider, who runs double-tier busing routes.

Apple Bus is in process of updating bus routes and will be updating the parent portal frequently, and thanks everyone for their patience as this may take up to a week to complete.

Parents and guardians can contact their school with questions about school times or enrollment.


*KPBSD schools open to students on Monday, August 24, 2020. Variance: Kachemak Selo, Razdolna, and Voznesenka schools begin Tuesday, August 18, 2020. Nanwalek, Nikolaevsk and Port Graham schools begin Friday, August 21, 2020.
