King Staff Celebration Drive is canceled!
Hello, MLK families. We, the MLK staff cannot express enough how much we care and miss your children. Please be assured that we are working diligently to develop engaging and equitable learning opportunities for all students. Please be patient with us as we learn how to work with your child without actually having them in our classrooms. To support your child in meeting grade-level expectations, please encourage him/her to participate in all learning opportunities provided by his/her teacher. Thank you for supporting your child with his/her learning during this school closure.
Hola familias de Martin Luther King. Nosotros, el personal de la escuela no podemos expresar lo suficiente cuánto extrañamos a sus hijos. Tenga la seguridad de que estamos trabajando diligentemente para producir oportunidades de aprendizaje de alta calidad y equitativas para todos los estudiantes. Por favor, tenga paciencia con nosotros mientras aprendemos a trabajar con su hijo/hija sin tenerlos realmente en nuestros salones de clase. Para apoyar a su hijo/hija a cumplir con las expectativas de nivel de grado, por favor anímelo a participar en todas las oportunidades de aprendizaje que la maestra o maestro le ofrezca. Gracias por apoyar a su hijo con su aprendizaje mientras las escuelas están cerradas.
RE: OSPI Reopening Guidance Released
Dear YSD Families and Staff,
Thank you for your flexibility as we work to provide a quality education during the COVID-19 global pandemic. I know that the situation has been challenging, and I am thankful for your resourcefulness, dedication, and care for our young learners.
The much-anticipated guidelines for returning to school in the fall were just released by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). These recommendations were developed in close collaboration with the state Department of Health and Governor Inslee’s office.
The Yakima School District will thoroughly review the guidelines and work with our leadership team to develop a local reopening guide for our schools. This will be influenced by the state’s recommendations but also may have some unique components. We anticipate sharing this reopening guide with you and with our community the week of July 6.
As you know, this is uncharted territory and there will be some elements of the guide that will need to be worked out along the way. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this process and promise to stay in close communication with you moving forward.
I hope you continue to stay safe and healthy. We will be in touch soon with more information.
Trevor Greene, Superintendent
