All Schools In The State Of Washington Closed Through At Least Late April


Governor Inslee announced the change in a press conference Friday afternoon.

The governor says he is ordering that all school campuses be closed by the end of Monday, March 16th, and that closure continue through April 24th.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal says the state will work schools and districts to make sure students who depend on school for meals will continue to eat.

Reykdal said one of their options is to use bus drivers to deliver food to students.
