KPBSD Update March 19, 2020

"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.

  • Seward Meal Delivery: 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.

What little things will you do to prevent the spread of the coronavirus to keep yourself, and the people you care about safe--especially everyone over age 60 or with a compromised immune system?

ideas: You can wash your hands, your water bottle, cell phone, door knobs, light switches, and practice social distancing. Be kind and reach out--these can be lonely times. Call an elder or single friend, write a letter or story, and be kind. The little things you do now may save a life.
