Vote Yes for Sunnyside Schools

“Vote Yes for Sunnyside Schools” signs are appearing all over Sunnyside, like this one near Washington Elementary School, in advance of the 2020 Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy on the Feb. 11 ballot. The four-year levy asks for $2.8 million for school programs.

SUNNYSIDE — Ballots are due Tuesday, Feb. 11 regarding the fate of a Sunnyside School District $2.8 million Replacement Education Programs and Operations Levy.

So far, the response to the four-year levy request has been good, School Board Chairman Steven Winfree remarked.

“I think people know this levy will help maintain our school district,” he said, urging people to mark their ballots

“We just need a simple majority for its passage,” he added.

Ballots may be dropped off at the red Yakima County ballot box near the Sunnyside Post office. Voters must have a Feb. 11 postmark if they are mailed on Tuesday.
