Students may be checked out by staff or by adults authorized by the parents. Students have “town leave” 5 or 6 times a week in which they may walk to town for shopping or other activities such as movies, restaurants, and more.

How is the food?

Students are served three meals a day, seven days a week. There is always a salad and fruit bar for lunches and dinners. Students have at least three choices for the main course at lunch and dinner. In student surveys, the majority of students think the food is fairly good, but would like to see more foods like caribou, seal, and other traditional foods. We do serve Alaska salmon and halibut, though!
