Our Governor sent out an emergency message that is urging all Alaskans to follow some basic recommendations to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19. “My job as governor is not to tell you how to live your life. My job is to ensure the security and safety of Alaska. I can’t do that without your help,” said Governor Dunleavy in his video address. “I’m asking you to reach deep for the next three weeks. If we can buy time for our critical workers – if we can keep our systems operational – we can avoid being forced to take further action. But if we cannot reduce the spread of this virus, we reduce our future options for how to proceed. No matter what you believe about the virus, the facts are the facts. Hospitalizations and sick healthcare workers are reaching untenable levels. We must act together now while we still have choices.” This is not a mandate from the Governor to close schools; it is simply a request to do our part to help slow the transmission of the virus. The Health Advisory Committee met and determined to continue at medium risk level next week based on current local cases. We will provide information about school risk-levels as swiftly as we are able for the weeks to come. There will be a Superintendent Zoom meeting on Fridays at noon to provide time for questions and concerns.

In Marine Biology students are learning about the variety of marine life and how it is classified through taxonomy. As you work your way through the different phyla, organisms become more complex. Focusing on phylum Annelida, segmented worms, students observed the simple form and function of the internal and external anatomy of an earthworm. While there are no earthworms in the ocean there is a variety of bristle worms and tube worms with a varied form of body function. Students then moved to phylum Arthropoda and dissected a crayfish. This is the largest phylum which includes insects, spiders, and crustaceans. Students learned about the function of the exoskeleton and digestive glands and wondered why the stomach was in its head!
