Many regions around the world are experiencing an expanding outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the virus known as COVID-19. This is an evolving situation that may have significant implications for Washington communities, including schools, in the months.

Public and private schools in Washington are developing plans for a safe return to school this fall so they can deliver the best possible educational experience to their students.  All schools will follow safety guidelines of official state and local health agencies.
