Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kale is having an issue with the boiler system that has resulted in poor air quality in the school.

Juneau School District Chief of Staff Kristin Bartlett said maintenance is working to fix the issue, but as a precaution the school is closing early on Monday. In addition, all after school and evening activities/meetings in the building are canceled to provide maintenance with full access to the building.

Students with their own transportation were dismissed starting at 2:35 p.m. Students who ride the bus or get picked up have been relocated to the Marie Drake gym to wait for the buses.
