Winter vacation is over for Kenai Peninsula students, who returned to their virtual classrooms Monday. But in just a week, they’ll be back in their real classrooms, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District announced this afternoon.
The district was originally planning to reopen schools Jan. 19, following guidance from an advisory committee that included teachers, staff and medical experts.
Now that return will happen Jan. 11. The district said the shift is because of a reduction in COVID-19 transmission on the peninsula.
