LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -Teachers in Longview and Evergreen say they have reached tentative agreements with their districts early Sunday.

The Longview Teachers Association posted on Facebook pictures of representatives hard at work in a lengthy overnight session to hammer out an agreement.

They are asking their members to attend a planned meeting at 6 p.m. Sunday.

On Friday, a Cowlitz County judge ordered the teachers back to work – after the Longview School District filed an injunction.

The plan is still for teachers and staff to head back to school Monday, with students finally in class on Tuesday.

The Evergreen School District and Evergreen Education Association also say they have reached a tentative agreement.

The association posted on Facebook saying they agreed on a contract just before 3 a.m.

The teachers’ union members will vote on that deal Sunday afternoon.

If it’s approved, students would go back to school on Monday.
