The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District has mitigation plans in place for what will happen with in-person education under low, medium and high risk levels in communities across the peninsula. Those plans can be found here: kpbsd.k12.ak.us/content.aspx?id=41923

As of Tuesday, the southern Kenai Peninsula (from Ninilchik south) was at a medium risk level, with 13 new cases within the last 14 days. The southern peninsula is considered to be high risk if there have been 20 or more new cases in the last 14 days.

As of Tuesday, the rural communities category within the school district were at low risk. That category includes Nanwalek School, Port Graham School and Susan B. English School in Seldovia across Kachemak Bay and in lower Cook Inlet.
