Hello Hunter Families and Staff,

There will be no in-person school for Hunter on Friday, April 9th.  

Teachers will touch base with students and families on Friday to assess needs and provide support.

As of this writing, the status of the Hunter roof is still being assessed.  

We will provide updates as information becomes available.  

 It is possible that next week instruction for Hunter will be held remotely.  

We will work with staff and families to prepare for remote learning.  

We will send an update by Friday afternoon. 

On Friday, April 9th, the number to contact Hunter Elementary's main office staff is 907-452-2000 ext. 11401.




The Fairbanks North Star Borough is SHARING this message from the School District's Superintendent's Office. 

FNSB Administration and Borough Public Works Engineers are in close communication 

with the School District to evaluate the building and see what the next steps are. 

The School District has advised that parent check out is in progress and is going well and a lunch plan is in place. 

The normal bus times will run for both schools. Updates and additional information will be shared when it becomes available.


Dear Hunter Families: 

Due to structural concerns regarding the Hunter Elementary roof that were reported this morning, 

Hunter Elementary students have been safely evacuated to Lathrop High School. 

If you are able to pick your students up from Lathrop, you can do so at any time during the school day. 

Pickup will be at the Fish Bowl entrance, which is at the front of the building to the far left. 

This exit is on the Mary Siah side closest to Hunter with all of the windows. 

Hunter staff will be at the doors to check out students to their parents and guardians. 

If you are unable to pick up your students at Lathrop during the school day, 

buses will operate at the normal times this afternoon.  

If you would like to have somebody else pick up your students, 

call Lathrop High School at 456-7794 ext. 17506 to confirm with school staff who you authorize to check out your students.

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. 

We will contact families later today to provide an update regarding the status of school on Friday.
