DCSD Spring Break Extension/Postponement of Activities: March 13, 2020

Good Afternoon Everyone,

At 5:15 P.M., March 13, 2020, the Governor’s office mandated a state-wide school closure for all students beginning on March 16th, with students being able to return to school on March 30th.

Further, they have mandated that all after-school activities are cancelled as well during this time.

This does not impact prior information shared by the district as these plans align with our prior approach.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with updates as quickly as possible.

COVID-19 Resources: March 20, 2020

As COVID-19 continues to impact us all, here are some resources for parents/guardians to learn more about the Coronavirus Disease 2019.

The first resource is a link to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development website which is a great source for information as it develops in Alaska.


The second link is guidance for parents/guardians trying to talk to children about COVID-19.


As you talk to children, please remind them to practice social distancing outside the house by staying a snow machine’s length away from other people (6 feet).

By putting safety first and sharing knowledge, we protect each other!
