The Governor of Alaska closed all schools until the end of the school year, on Thursday, April 9th. Dunleavy says there's too much uncertainty to open the school back up again.

That's because the school season will end soon, Governor Dunleavy said

"To wait another two or three weeks when we're already close to the school year (ending) by that point... we feel would cause more disruption. So we're extending the mandate for the rest of the year."

Other mandates still in place in Alaska as of April 12th include one that closes "non-essential" businesses, prohibits public gatherings, and asks Alaskans to stay home. The second mandate prohibits nonessential in-state travel.
