From Superintendent Tranni:
Friends and colleagues, I am writing to you all to congratulate you on your collective efforts at keeping school open and to encourage you to redouble your efforts as the COVID landscape around us changes.
The rate of community spread at large is increasing across the State and in the Mat-Su. Also, COVID fatigue is real, and it is easy for us to unconsciously relax our vigilance with regard to social distancing, mask wearing, hand washing, and other mitigation factors. So, along with our partners in community health, I am asking you all to redouble your COVID mitigation efforts. Maintain social distancing, insist on universal mask usage, wash your hands often and follow your mitigation plans. Together, we can keep MSBSD schools one of the safest spots in the Valley for our students.
