The much anticipated announcement by the Yakima Health District for local school officials to proceed with in-person, hybrid learning on Monday afternoon, September 28, is a positive step for students to begin transitioning back into the classroom within the next three weeks and moving beyond the limiting confines of distance instruction.

During the Sunnyside School District Board meeting later that evening which began at 7:30, Superintendent Kevin McKay presented YHD information to the board about their recommendations for advancing in-person learning beginning with K-5 students as early as Oct. 12, pending ongoing stable case counts and hospitalization rates.
