In my story the character is going to high school and I was wondering if they go to school in winter even with the short light hours

    Yup. Alaskan's rarely ever miss school. In the winter we go to school in the dark, and come home in the dark. It's exhausting, but you sort of get used to it. School sometimes get canceled due to poor driving conditions but not often. If it is canceled due to weather, it'll be because of ice, not because of snow. But otherwise, it takes a lot for schools to cancel.

    Yup. When I lived there, it was dark when we went to school and dark by the time we went home.

    Snow days in Alaska are relatively rare compared to other places I lived around the US.
