General Service on an individual other than an infant or an incompetent person, is effected by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to the individual personally, or by leaving copies thereof at the individual’s dwelling house or usual place of abode with some person of suitable age and discretion then residing therein, or by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to an agent authorized by appointment or by law to receive service of process.
Service of a notice to quit/eviction notice is found in AS 09.45.100(c) which explains how the Notice to Quit must be given to the tenant:
A notice to quit shall be in writing and shall be served upon the tenant or person in possession by being (1) Delivered to the tenant or person; (2) Left at the premises in case of absence from
the premises; or (3) Sent by registered or certified mail.
The notice is typically delivered in person to the tenant by the landlord or property manager. If the landlord or property manager attempts to make personal service and the tenant is absent, the notice may be left on the premises. This is commonly done by taping the notice to the tenant's front door.
While many parents may not consider a 13 year old "of suitable age and discretion" he got it to you so that should be good service. Additionally since they could have just taped it to the front door, it appears that you have been suitably served under AS 09.45.100.
