Individual schools may choose to cancel activities based on road conditions in the area of the school.
District buildings will remain open for groups scheduled to rent ASD facilities. It is the renter's discretion whether to continue their planned activity.
ASD Transportation Director Steve Kalmes said the district will chain all Anchorage school buses for its afternoon routes and encourages families to be patient if buses run late due to slow driving conditions across the municipality.
A decision on school and activities schedules for Friday will be determined at a later time following a thorough review of conditions.
