Please note a portion of the Seward Highway is currently closed to all traffic due to hazardous road conditions. Here is an excerpt from the state Department of Transportation:
"A winter snow storm and two early morning avalanches have combined to create extremely dangerous driving conditions, prompting the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to close the Seward Highway between Potter Marsh and Girdwood. This closure is effective from 9:00am and will extend until further notice."
Road condition updates are available by dialing 511 or logging on to http://511.alaska.gov. All staff should be familiar with emergency closure procedures and develop contingency plans as necessary.
Also, Goldenview Middle School has canceled its after-school activities today.
