CRESTON, Wash. — Wilbur-Creston School District announced cancellations of all schools on Thursday and Friday because of a high number of staff illnesses.

The district says it’s unable to fully staff their buildings.

It says it does have enough people working for extracurricular activities, practices, and games though. These activities will continue as scheduled.

The school district said these days would be made up in June.
