Delta-Greely School District


Three small school districts around the Interior plan to bring students back into the classroom next week, as long as the number of COVID-19 cases in the districts remains low.

Delta Junction High School

Despite the coronavirus shutdown, Delta Junction High School seniors and their friends and families will get to celebrate their graduation this year after all. That’s because the students and district administrators have worked out plans for an unusual commencement ceremony Thursday night that’ll allow the community to honor the seniors – while protecting their health.

A Delta Junction woman has filed a complaint with the Alaska State Commission for Human Rights, alleging that the local school district is discriminating against one of her children because of problems stemming an incident last fall in which the boy spoke in Spanish while in class after being told to use English.

The cold snap that’s been gripping the Interior for more than a week now finally pushed the mercury to 50 below in the Delta Junction area, so Delta-Greely School District officials canceled classes this morning.
