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.

The next meeting is at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The public can watch the meeting on the district’s YouTube channel and individuals wanting to make a public comment at the meeting can register at wenatcheeschools.org.
