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.
