Re:

Early dismissal due to weather

Due to weather and road conditions in the Anchorage and Kenai areas, the Governor’s Office has directed the following schedule for State offices in the areas, effective immediately:

There will be a staggered early dismissal for Anchorage and Kenai area employees beginning at 2:00 pm, with approximately one-third of employees of the various offices dismissed at 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 pm at the discretion of supervisors, with deference given to those who have the farthest to travel. State offices not involved in protecting the health and safety of Alaskans (certain offices of the Departments of Public Safety, Corrections, and the Alaska Pioneer Homes and the Alaska Psychiatric Institute) will be closed at 4:00 pm.

Please use extreme caution while driving. While main roads may be in fair condition, less traveled streets may be extremely slippery.

Improving weather and road conditions are expected to allow all offices to be open during normal business hours Monday, February 6 in Anchorage and Kenai.

Updates will be posted at http://www.alaska.gov/ and http://doa.alaska.gov/. Any announcements will also be available at the State Office Closure notification line, statewide toll-free at 1-877-326-5551.
