FAIRBANKS, Alaska. (KTVF) https://www.webcenter11.com/content/sports/ASAA-postpones-AK-state-basketball-tournaments-due-to-coronavirus-568724061.html


The Alaska School Activities Association has announced that the Alaska state basketball tournaments have been postponed indefinitely in regard to the coronavirus.

This decision comes on the same day that the World Health Organization declared global pandemic.

In an email from ASAA, they mandated that all conference tournaments after March 14 are postponed until further notice.

The 1A/2A tournaments were slated to start next week in Anchorage from March 18-21.

We'll have more information when it becomes available.


WPSD School Board Policy 6114.4 directs our response. In addition, we integrate information we receive from the CDC and DHSS to monitor, prepare, and revisit plans that will help ensure the health and welfare of our students and Staff Members Employees.


Since the onset of the flu season our District has:

  • Distributed information about the flu digitally, hard copy and various announcements
  • Reviewed and created new signage and posted it regarding hand washing and general personal hygiene
  • Reviewed the ingredients in our cleaning products to ensure they meet or exceed the requirements to disinfect against all viruses, changed out when necessary
  • Reviewed cleaning techniques and made changes to ensure high touch areas are cleaned regularly and thoroughly
  • Implemented cleaning regimen to ensure our routines are carried out effectively and efficiently
  • Reviewed ideas to enhance or assist the Maintenance, Custodial and Food Service
  • Visual inspections were performed on locations food is prepared or served, rest rooms, high traffic areas


WPSD School Officials believe the next steps are to continue to prepare and be able to make changes that may occur regarding any concerns surrounding the updates on COVID-19.


WPSD School Officials will continue to receive and distribute information on our District Website, https://www.wpsd.us/ as rapidly as we can while providing accurate and up to date information.
