The Mat-Su Borough School District is soliciting input from the public on the 2015-2016 school year calendar. Check out this link:
This is our chance as hunters to tell the school district that we want a more hunt friendly school schedule. When I first moved to the valley school didn't start until after Labor Day. That was great for hunting families because it meant we could do a sheep hunt and other hunts before school even started. But a few years back that all changed and we started school in mid August. Since then it has started earlier and earlier each year. This last year teachers started August 7th. That trend needs to reversed.
If you have the time take the survey. It only asks 4 questions and allows a section for comments so it can be real quick. Please take some time and urge the district to start latter in August for a more hunter friendly calendar. Thanks!
