Because of the surging number of COVID-19 cases in the community, the Wenatchee School District has delayed the return of third-through-fifth graders to the classroom.

Pre-school-through-second-graders are already spending a half day in classrooms and half the day learning online, unless parents opted for all-online instruction for their child.

The school district had hoped to have that hybrid model in place for third-through-fifth graders after the Thanksgiving holiday but now says they have no specific date in mind for the return of those students.
