KPBSD has an easy to understand chart explaining what to do if your child is a close contact with somebody who has covid, tests positive for covid, or just has symptoms. Check it out!

Moose Pass School Things to Know

Parents: If you have not been on Power School to fill out your student's 'Back to School Forms'

Please be sure to do that ASAP. If you have never logged into Power School, you will need to create an account. Here is a link to the forms and instructions: https://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/students_parents.aspx?id=39221

We still do not have a Food Service Manager, so there is no meal service at this time.

Students should come to school with food for am snack time and lunch.

Also each student should have a water bottle, to avoid frequent trips to the fountain.

Hope School Updates

Welcome back to students tomorrow! We hope everyone has had a wonderful and relaxing summer. We are welcoming a new middle and high school teacher to our community this year. Tammy Highly, hailing from Shungnak, and originally from Missouri will be joining our team, replacing Ms. Earl.

A few notes regarding the beginning of the year:

1. If you have not yet registered your students, please do so today. https://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/students_parents.aspx?id=39221

2. Please remember to bring outdoor gear and non-marking gym shoes, and a change of clothes (if your student is k-5) to be stored in their locker. We go outside for recess every day, rain, shine or snow!

3. We do not have a secretary at this time. Phones and emails may not be answered in as timely a manner as you are used to, so please bear with us through this transition.

4. Masks are not required this year, but the district encourages everyone to wear one anyway.
