Fairbanks, AK - A handful of Fairbanks schools have been on high security alert in the last two days due to two separate incidents.
An armed standoff early Tuesday disrupted the morning commute for residents of west Fairbanks. The incident also rerouted more than 20 school buses. Karen Gaborik is the School District Interim Superintendent. She says at least 140 kids were late to morning classes. “That’s a fair number of students coming late to school," she says. "We also had staff who got stuck in traffic as well.”
