In an effort to help our state and nation combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Governor Inslee has closed both public and private schools through April 24, 2020. Since many of ESD 112’s programs and services take place at schools, some of these programs and services look different and some have been temporarily suspended. The ESD 112 campus is still open from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday, however, we encourage you to call or email your resource provider for specific information.
For an updated list of program changes and more information on COVID-19, go to our Coronavirus updates page.
