Beginning Tuesday, March 17, Cascade School District will be distributing free sack breakfasts and lunches at six locations in the district: Cascade High School, Leavenworth; Peshastin-Dryden Elementary School, Peshastin; Dryden Softball Field Park, Dryden (please note new location); Beaver Valley Elementary School, Plain; Blewett Fire Hall, Valley Hi; and Nason Creek Rest Area, Merritt. Sack breakfasts and lunches will be available for pick up outside of the following locations at the following times:


Pick Up Timeframe

Cascade High School, Leavenworth


Dryden Softball Field Park, Dryden (*NOTE LOCATION CHANGE)

We have been contacted by community groups who may sometimes provide additional resources to families in need at these locations.

We are developing a plan to provide childcare to health care workers and first responders in the case that they are unable to find their own childcare. Our tentative hope is to have childcare from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. out of the District Office at 330 Evans St., Leavenworth. If you are a health care worker or first responder in our district and will need childcare, please contact Julie Winters at or (509)548-5885. You must register in advance for childcare.

Cascade High School staff are working diligently to ensure that seniors will be able to complete the courses they need for graduation. Please contact Cascade High School at or with any additional questions. We also encourage you to check our website to receive updates on our response to this ever-evolving situation.
