Greetings from Klawock School. We wanted to update our parents and community that Klawock School will continue to follow our universal masking policy. All students, staff, and visitors into the buildings will be required to wear masks. We will continuously monitor and evaluate this, but the plan will be to continue with this policy until further notice. This policy will result in our students being in school this year. Klawock School would like to thank our students, parents, and community for your understanding and support this year. Following protocols during these times is certainly no fun, but it’s what we must do to keep our students in school this year. We appreciate the support and cooperation we’ve received as we work through our mitigation plans in attempt to keep everyone safe and attending school in person. Thank you!

KCSD classes will start on Wednesday Sept 1st in GREEN. Meaning we will have all students in school the entire school day. MASK POLICY CHANGE: KCSD will require K-12 masking to start the school year. All students and staff will be required to wear masks in the school building, a change from the existing policy. Revision based on CDC and Public Health guidelines for schools. Data suggests using proper mitigation practices (masks included) can greatly reduce the spread of COVID in a classroom setting. Additionally, the existing protocol for “Close Contacts” states that if universal masking is in place, students in a classroom will not be considered close contacts if someone were COVID positive in the classroom. If there is not universal masking done in the classroom, then the entire classroom would be considered “Close Contacts” and would have to quarantine as so. This could force entire classrooms out of school for weeks so universal masking will keep our students in school more. If any parents are not comfortable sending their students to school with required masking, we will continue to offer materials and instruction to them as best we can virtually/remotely. KCSD will revisit this K-12 Mandated Mask Policy again by Sept 17th. We are hopeful we can remove this mandate at some point, but we want to do everything we can to keep our students in school and learning.
