Unalaska High School

Despite COVID-19 health regulations that stopped Unalaska's cross country team from traveling, the school district still moved forward with the season and students were able to compete with one another on the island and even virtually against some teams throughout the state. 

And, along with sunshine, numerous community members showed up at the team's final meet on Saturday to show support as several runners recorded new personal records.

In past years, on the final day of school, teachers and staff at Unalaska City School and Eagle's View Elementary Achigaalux would come dressed in their finest summer-vacation-themed attire as they'd bid farewell to their students with high-fives, hugs, and warm wishes of a relaxing and productive summer.

 

However, as is the case for many events this spring, the occasion looked starkly different from years past.
