Unalaska's classrooms will close Tuesday as the district moves to distance learning.

That's after city officials confirmed two new COVID-19 cases from community spread Monday and said there's "potential widespread exposure" to the virus in the community.

Around October every year for the last 19 years, Unalaska High School students have been wading into the Iliuliuk River, under science teacher Steven Gregory's guidance, to collect pairs of spawning salmon.

 

Last week, students in Gregory's fisheries class stretched a seine net from bank to bank, while another group waded upstream, rhythmically slapping large dip nets on the surface of the water.
