ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The Anchorage School District announced Friday morning that classes have been canceled for a third straight day, following a major snowfall that blanketed parts of Anchorage in over a foot of snow.

In a message to parents, the district said after-school activities will resume Friday on a “limited basis.” Conference competitions for high school and middle school activities will resume, but non-conference activities are canceled throughout the weekend. The district also said rental facilities are available to school groups for activities.

Also, the district said Saturday’s Anchorage School Board work session is still scheduled to start at 9 a.m. in the School Board Room at the Education Center.

Officials also said Lumen Christi High School and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School will be closed.

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District has not announced a decision as of Friday morning, after closing schools and using remote learning the previous two days.
