April 1, 2020 Extended School Closure Update

  • It was brought to our attention that two of our employees on campus were possible close contacts of a person with COVID-19 symptoms. We partnered with Northeast Tri County Health District and it was determined that our two employees are not close contacts.
  • Determining who is a close contact is a task that falls under Northeast Tri County Health District jurisdiction. Tri County contacts individual(s) and follows a Health District and CDC protocol to determine if a person is a close contact or not.  The Health District contacts all close contacts and orchestrates whether or not a person is quarantined. If you have questions, further information can be obtained by visiting the following websites:; or by calling our local COVID-19 call center that can be reached at 509-684-7563 that is available 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday.  If you have questions, please give us a call.
  • We are running a meal service next week during spring break on a different schedule:
    • Monday- single meal; Tuesday- two days of meals; Thursday- two days of meals
  • Childcare is closed next week for spring break and families have been contacted.

A HUGE thank you to everyone making our meals run, providing childcare, and working with students on learning!! We are all in this together!!
