Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council

      COVID-19 and Girl Scouting

      – Updated March 22, 2021 –

      The Council has a color-coded system to adjust with the threat level from the Coronavirus. Our system is very similar to that of the school districts in Alaska and is based upon case-levels in Interior Alaska and the demographics that we serve. Decisions on the North Slope and Northwest Arctic Regions will be made independently, based on circumstances in those communities.

      Our Council office is currently operating on limited staff.  Please call ahead before you stop by, as we may be out to lunch. When you do stop by, masks and social distancing are required. Thank you!

      Troops have begun to meet safely in person again under the Yellow Zone guidelines and we couldn’t be happier! And, last week, the CDC adjusted the social distancing guidelines for children. Our new troop guidelines will allow for 3 feet of social distancing for our girl members while adults still need to practice 6 feet of distance.  The CDC safety guidelines have worked so far and our local case numbers have been down long enough that we have loosened our troop meeting guidelines as well.  In the Yellow Zone, troops can now meet up to FOUR times per month, as long as one of those meetings is outside. Please contact us with any questions about our safety policies, 456-4782.

      For the week of April 12th,
      the Council is in the
      YELLOW Zone.

      As of April 12th, the 14 day case count average is 9.9.

      Green Zone: <5 cases on average in the last 14 days
      Yellow Zone: 5-10 cases on average in the last 14 days
      Red Zone: >10 cases on average in the last 14 days
      If you would like to receive our weekly newsletter, just send an email to membership@gsak.org.

      Earth Day is NEXT week, on April 22nd! Let’s show the world how much Girl Scouts love our planet! All Girl Scouts are invited to make a recycled paper flower that we will display on our Council windows! Plus, you can earn a fun patch for it!

      1) Make a FLAT paper flower out of recycled paper (newspaper, cardboard, magazines...etc.).
      2) Write your name and troop # on the flower.
      3) Drop off your flower in the Flower Drop Box outside our Council. OR if you’re a Girl Scout in one of our rural communities, just take a photo of your flower and email it to program@gsak.org and we’ll mail you your fun patch! Flowers are due by the end of April.

      For those flowers we hang up in our windows, we’ll make a Facebook post in May and let you know when you can pick up your flowers and your fun patch! Let's celebrate Earth Day through recycled art!
