KPBSD Update 3-19-20

"Little things really do matter. The small actions you can do right now will really make a difference. ... We can socially distance ourselves without socially isolating. We’re Alaskans; we know how to do hard things.” -Dr. Anne Zink, Chief Medical Officer for the State of Alaska

“Get-It and Go” Meal Deliveries
If you want to continue receiving meals next week, March 23-27, and are already receiving meals, do nothing. If you want to sign-up, or stop delivery, call Student Nutrition Services at 714-8890.

Unfortunately, meal delivery in Seward will be suspended one more day on Friday, March 20, 2020. We hope to resume Monday.

On Thursday, 1,354 meals were delivered to students on the Kenai Peninsula!

KPBSD staff are doing phenomenal planning and learning this week for all our students! The updates next week will share more information for parents and students. Meanwhile, it is important for students and families to remain calm – we are working closely with the Department of Education and Early Development and will provide many more answers to questions about school next week, including how education will happen when the extended spring break ends and school begins March 30, What about assessments?, and more. Remember, students are on an extended spring break now, and these days will not be added to the end of the school year.

Wash your hands, practice social distancing, and do the little things now to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
