COVID-19 Mitigation Plan Updates

Updates to the KPBSD mitigation plan will be effective Friday, March 4, 2022

Contact Tracing

KPBSD will no longer do in-school contact tracing. Schools will support staff and students with testing options, and educational materials about what to do if someone becomes a close contact or tests positive for COVID-19.

Face coverings

Face coverings are highly recommended, but not required for students and staff while indoors at school in all COVID-19 risk level scenarios. School visitors and volunteers have a choice to mask or not mask. An exception is for people who recently test positive for COVID-19. Read COVID-19 Positive Monitor, Mask, and Return Protocol

Bus Transportation: wearing a mask is required for all school bus passengers travelling to and from school and for all co-curricular activities and field trips per the US DOT mandate for public transportation

KPBSD will continue to follow Village or Tribal COVID-19 mandates for school facility operations

Symptom Free Schools

The KPBSD Symptom Free Schools Protocol remains in place


In addition to school based testing, Glacier Family Medicine Clinic in Seward and Soldotna Professional Pharmacy continue to provide free COVID-19 testing for KPBSD staff and students.

On March 4, 2022, the KPBSD website will be updated to reflect the changes to the mitigation plan and protocols.
