 UPDATE: JULY 24TH. IT'S ONLINE FOR ANCHORAGE   

On Friday, July 24th, Anchorage announced that the city's Covid-19 cases were becoming far too many for them to safely start school this fall in person. Anchorage determined the danger to have suddenly moved into the "high risk" column.

Schools around Alaska (including in the Copper Valley) are basing their decisions on "low," "medium" and "high risk" conditions. It's not even time for school in Anchorage, but already, they've averaged almost 40 new cases a day, according to an interview of School Superintendent Deena Bishop on Alaska Public Media. That's almost double the new cases from last week. 




With Anchorage's coronavirus cases steeply rising, the Anchorage School District changed course on July 21st and announced that school classes will probably begin there on August 20th – online only.

According to a story in the Anchorage Daily News, the plan had been to hold in person classes two days a week in August, followed by in-person classes 5 days a week in September.

School districts all over Alaska are using a high, medium and low-risk prototype for opening schools.

The Superintendent of Schools in Anchorage believes that the city is shifting into the high risk category.

And that the solution, for Anchorage at least, will be online schooling.
