2022-23 Mitigation Strategies
The Juneau School District (JSD) works with local and state agencies and follows CDC Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools. JSD COVID-19 mitigation strategies are in place to protect the health and safety of our community and to minimize disruption to teaching and learning. This plan is continually updated as conditions change and additional guidance becomes available.

JSD Mask Policy
Effective April 26, 2022 - Masks, or similar facial coverings designed to mitigate COVID-19 transmission and are well-fitted covering the mouth and nose, are optional for all persons indoors in Juneau School District facilities. The Superintendent has the authority to require face masks in certain situations, including but not limited to
- People in contact with another person identified as “high risk” for severe disease shall wear a mask when indoors with that/those individuals(s).
- People with exposure to someone with COVID-19 (i.e., close contacts) shall wear a mask per current CDC guidelines applicable for K-12 settings.
If masking is required in school settings, it will generally be implemented from individual close contacts to programs, to classrooms, to building-level based on circumstances.

When weather conditions in the Juneau area make it necessary to close school the school district follows these procedures for communicating school closures or schedule changes. These same procedures are followed for other emergencies.
The decision to close schools is generally made by 5:00 a.m. by the Superintendent in consultation with the First Student Bus Company Manager, City and Borough of Juneau City Manager and the National Weather Service Juneau Forecast Office.
School closures or schedule changes are posted by 6:00 a.m. atwww.juneauschools.org. An alert with emergency information will appear as a banner on all pages of the website. School-related announcements are also sent to local media.
In the event of a school closure, automated phone calls, emails and text messages are sent to families at 6:30 a.m. The notification system uploads data from PowerSchool each night, so please make sure your phone numbers are current at your child’s school.
Make an emergency plan with your children in the event that schools are closed, start late, or are dismissed early. Talk about where to go or what to do if a parent is not at home. Check with your school orwww.juneauschools.orgto find out if there are “snow routes” for your child’s school bus. On days when snow bus routes are used, an alert with bus information will appear on the website and information will be sent to local media.
On days that Juneau receives significant snow First Student will be joining the city and issuing snow routes in conjunction with the city buses, please click this block to see the schedule for snow routes.
