Hood Canal School Principal Vernon Bruni recently squeezes a pandemic stress ball in his office. Despite a surging number of COVID-19 cases, the district has not been forced to close a single classroom due to a breakout. "I think we're doing better than most," he said.

Voters approved replacement levies for the Hood Canal and Mary M. Knight school districts, while a Hood Canal building bond is falling short of a 60% super majority.

In initial ballot results released at 8 p.m. Tuesday, the Mary M. Knight levy received 57.19% of the vote, and the Hood Canal levy 59.61%. Hood Canal's proposed bond to expand and renovate was at 56.16%.

The Mason County Auditor's Office released the second count of ballots at 4 p.m. Wednesday, after the Journal went to press. Turnout for the initial count was at 33.87%. The county is set to certify election results Feb. 18.
