We received this update yesterday. The USDA supports the National School Lunch program across the country and wants to continue supporting students when school is out. So, this summer they’re bringing the meals to you! When you sign up to get a Meals-to-You box, every week you’ll get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each of your eligible students. Each box will include 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches/suppers, and 5 snacks—enough food for each kid for a week! To register, go to www.mealstoyou.org.

LIVING WITH COVID - Bering Strait School District NEW PHASE We are moving into a new phase of the pandemic moving more into endemic times in relation to covid. This means we will reduce our testing, tracking and mitigation from the very strict, reactionary type rules that were very important when we didn’t know much about covid, when covid was much more severe and when we had less options for prevention and treatment. We will move now to more sustainable ways of interacting. These guidelines are encouraged in all schools while working closely with each school community. School closures will be much less likely and will be determined on a case by case basis and take into account staffing, safety and the need for students to have schools open for academics, social interaction and many other reasons. Shishmaref School

Good Evening, Currently there have been a total of three cases of COVID identified at the wrestle/cheer tournament. The students are isolated away from the main group with an adult. The decision has been made to cancel the remainder of the wrestling/cheerleading tournament. There will be no further activities taking place at the Unalakleet School this weekend. We are working to schedule travel for students, coaches, and visiting parents to return home tomorrow. We will send out the information as soon as it's finalized, and it will be posted on Google Calendar. We thank you for your understanding and patience. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call me at (907) 625-1590. Respectfully, Kris Busk
Good Afternoon, This afternoon a student tested positive for COVID-19 at the wrestling/cheerleading tournament. The student has been removed from the school building and is currently isolating with family outside of the school. All teams are currently quarantining and separated from group contact until the results of NSHC testing efforts come back. Social tracing is currently being conducted. The following message was sent by the Unalakleet School administration a few moments ago: "Due to a positive case being identified, the elementary/wrestling cheerleading tournament is currently postponed until tomorrow. All teams will remain in their room. No spectators or visitors will be allowed to enter the school. The situation will be reevaluated tomorrow morning." If the tournament ends up being cancelled, all athletes and coaches returning to the village will be asked to quarantine until the results of a COVID test that is taken at site are returning. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on my cell phone at (907) 625-1590. Thank you for your understanding. Kris Busk
