A Note from Nurse Yoly

Why are Alaskans getting vaccinated?


During a vaccine clinic, a nurse coworker asked why people wanted to get vaccinated and these are the reasons that they shared with her:


To stay healthy. To visit my mom and dad. For my husband. For my wife. For my kids. For the fishing season. For a normal tourist season. To stop this #!#* virus. This will help us return to normal when everyone who wants it gets it. So schools don’t need to close again. Because I have health problems and could get really sick if I get the COVID. Now honey, don’t you know? It’s the neighborly thing to do. Because it is safe. Think about all the scientist around the world who worked on this vaccine. To see a new grandbaby. For the economy. Because of the new variants. Well, I am old, but I sure would be happy to live longer and not die of that COVID.


Currently there are large groups of Alaskans that are eligible to receive the vaccine: school staff, essential workers > 49 yo, childcare workers, those who care for anyone who is an elder, most health care workers, those >49 with a high-risk medical condition and more.

A Bright, New Look!

Over the last 2-3 weeks, most of the inside of the school was painted. The painters did a fabulous job and we appreciate their attention to detail.

PEAK Testing

PEAK testing will be held the week of April 5-9.


The Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools (PEAKS) are content area summative assessments designed to measure a student’s understanding of the skills and concepts outlined in the Alaska English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Standards and the K-12 Science Standards for Alaska. Alaska’s standards are specific rigorous expectations for growth in students’ skills across grades.


The ELA and mathematics assessments are administered to students in grades 3-9. The science assessment is administered to students in grades 5, 8, and 10.


Please be sure your child is prepared by getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy breakfast.

A friendly reminder that all students out sick, regardless of whether they have been sent home from school, or you have opted to keep them home must follow district protocol for COVID19 quarantining. This means they must quarantine for 10 days AND not return until they have been symptom free for 24 hours OR they may get tested and return to school after a negative test result AND remaining symptom free for 24 hours. Students must be medication free to be considered symptom free.
