Peninsula schools to start late due to weather conditions

Weather conditions have prompted schools across the peninsula to delay school times on Monday, Dec. 3.

All Kenai Peninsula Borough School District schools will have a two-hour delay. A two-hour delay means that buses run two hours later than normal, school begins two hours later than normal, and staff arrives at school two hours later than normal.

Parents and guardians who decide — based on weather conditions near you — to keep their child at home, should call schools to let them know. Absences will be excused.

If weather and road conditions warrant a full closure, an announcement will be made by 7 a.m.

The Kenai River Campus in Soldotna will also have a two-delay in start time Monday, Dec. 3, due to unsafe road conditions. This delay applies to students, staff and faculty. Director Gary J. Turner will announce any additional information as conditions change. At this time, the Kachemak Bay Campus in Homer will be open for regular hours, Monday, Dec. 3.
