WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee School Board will move its meetings online after receiving a “credible threat” against board members, the school district announced.
Wenatchee police are investigating, Diana Haglund, a district spokeswoman, said Friday. She declined to release specific details about the threat.
Police, she said, advised the board to host its meetings virtually. A police spokesperson could not be reached to comment Friday afternoon.
The school board’s Aug. 24 meeting was disrupted by a group of people who refused to wear masks. The board shifted the meeting from in-person to online after Board President Laura Jaecks and board member Maria Iñiguez said they were uncomfortable being in the same room with the unmasked group.
