ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Two days after a winter storm shut down classes as several schools on the southern Kenai Peninsula and delayed them for even more in the Seward area, a handful of schools will start with a two-hour delay again on Thursday.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District announced in a Wednesday press release that the following southern peninsula schools will start after a two-hour delay:

  • Chapman School
  • Connections Homeschool
  • Fireweed Academy
  • Homer Flex School
  • Homer High School
  • Homer Middle School
  • Kachemak Selo School
  • McNeil Canyon Elementary School
  • Nikolaevsk School
  • Ninilchik School
  • Paul Banks Elementary School
  • Razdolna School
  • Voznesenka School
  • West Homer Elementary School

Nanwalek, Port Graham, and Susan B. English schools across Kachemak Bay, however, will open on a normal schedule, according to the district.

If weather and road conditions warrant full closures rather than delays, the district wrote that families will be updated by around 7 a.m. Wednesday.

“A two hour delay means that morning buses run two hours later than normal, school begins two hours later than normal, and Pre-K sessions are cancelled,” the release states. “The school day ends at the normal time.”
