Here’s the latest on Yakima County school closures

School Empty

YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. — Under an executive order by Gov. Jay Inslee, all schools in Washington state will close from March 17 to April 24 in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

At a press conference Friday, Educational Service District 105 Superintendent Kevin Chase said parents need to prepare now.

“Parents and families: it’s going to be difficult for them,” Chase told KAPP-KVEW. “Every family is going to have to cope with it in a different way.”

All school districts in Yakima County will be closed starting Tuesday, with the exception of the Naches Valley School District, which will be closed starting Monday.
