WSD SRO contract to be updated

MATTAWA — The SRO (school resource officer) contract between the City of Mattawa and Wahluke School District is being modified to reflect changes that have occurred because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In November 2019, the Wahluke School District and the City of Mattawa entered into a contract in which the Mattawa Police Department would provide one SRO for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year and two SROs for the 2020-2021 school year.
