COVID-19 Update

We believe in the power of prevention. That’s why Prevent is following social distancing guidelines during the global pandemic. Staff are working remotely and creating innovative ways to conduct business, connect community and support youth. Meetings are virtual, and most large events unable to be hosted virtually are cancelled, with a few exceptions that adhere to state guidelines ESD 112 Board guidelines. We’ll update this notice when changes to these practices are made. Visit the ESD 112 COVID and Washington COVID websites.
