PALMER — All Mat-Su Borough School District buildings will be closed to in-class learning next week due to COVID-19 concerns.
“As you know the recent surge in COVID-19 cases has impacted our schools. Some schools have needed to be shut down more frequently and for longer time periods. These increases in infections have impacted families, staff and our partners in Public Health. As the virus has spread across the Valley, schools have needed to close because of a lack of staff and/or substitutes available to teach and care for students, as well as the ability of our partners in Public Health to complete contact tracing due to the increased volume of new cases,” MSBSD Superintendent Dr. Randy Trani said in an update that was emailed to district staff and Mat-Su families Thursday morning.
