We ask that everyone take the time to talk to our children about the dangers of thin ice around the lagoon in Utqiaġvik, as well as all bodies of water in the villages across the North Slope. Please remind children about the uncertainty of the thickness of the ice along with the danger in playing near the edge of the ice and what might happen if the ice breaks. Your help in reminding children about these dangers at this time of year is greatly appreciated!
The student population of Kali School, which houses K3 through 12th grade, is indicative of the demographics of the village of Point Lay as a whole. The school maintains a student population between 90 and 100 students of largely Iñupiaq Eskimo heritage. The student teacher ratio at Kali School runs approximately 9:1 and the minor ratio of the entire village as compared to adults over 18 years of age is approximately 2:1. As represented by the schools mascot, the Wolverine (Qavvik), Kali School students have a fighting spirit and are active in numerous academic and athletic events.
If you are interested in volunteering to help out with any of the upcoming Qavvik Pride rewards or any other activities at the school, please contact Principal Cole or your child’s teacher. Having a successful school is truly a product of everyone working together!
