After-school activities were canceled Thursday by the Anchorage School District as weather conditions deteriorated throughout the day.

King Tech High School’s third session was also cancelled.

The state volleyball tournament will go on as scheduled, and the schools will be open for facility rentals for non ASD groups, the district said on Facebook.

A winter storm warning in Anchorage expired at 1 p.m. All schools were open in Anchorage on Thursday.

In the Susitna Valley, icy roads early Thursday prompted the Matanuska-Susitna School District to close three schools: Trapper Creek and Talkeetna elementary schools, and Susitna Valley Junior/Senior High School.

All other Mat-Su public schools were open, the district said on Facebook.

Susitna Valley precipitation was expected to transition to snow later in the day with up to 6 inches of accumulation, the highest amounts north and west of Talkeetna.
