On the heels of a very successful march at the KSD Admin building Friday (today) more re-open marches are planned in the Tri-Cities. Earlier Friday, a large gathering came to the Admin building and voiced their opinion about getting hybrid learning under way.

Groups of parents, students and citizens plan to rally next weekend with a pair of protests aimed at urging area school boards and administrators to proceed with hybrid learning for students who wish to return to class.

Friday October 23, some 300 people and students gathered at the Kennewick School District Admin building on 4th to protest the stunning decision made Wednesday to delay school for Middle and HS Students.  The District had begun hybrid A-B learning for K-5, group A going Monday-Tuesday, Group B Thursday-Friday.

Middle and HS students were preparing to return November 2 and had a green light from the BFHD to do so but the board by a split vote of 3-2 voted to postpone until February 2nd.

The two protests next weekend will be:

  • October 27th, 5:00 pm @Rd. 68 Lowes, ending at Jefferson Park in Richland - Rally and caravan from Pasco to Richland 
  • October 28th, 10 am @Lampson Stadium - March for freedom to go to school. All youth are welcome to participate.
