It was wonderful to have our students back in-person on a normal schedule here at school, despite a few room shuffles! Thanks to our families for working to safely get their students to and from school, despite the winter challenges. Awesome work from our Borough crew and local maintenance folks in sanding around the schools! Here's hoping we can keep the in-person learning going as this ice and snow slowly melt away.
IMPORTANT: Due to continued concerns about the snow load on District buildings, combined with the upcoming winter storm advisory and heavy rains, Petersburg High School and Mitkof Middle School will be released at 12:15 on Friday, January 7th. Buses will run at 12:15, and students will have grab and go lunch. Athletic practices will remain at their regular times. This will allow staff time to prepare for the upcoming weekend weather on the school property.
