  • EBT Funds Available to All YSD Students

    Posted by YSD Food Services on 7/6/2020

    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children are eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for some of the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Because all YSD students receive free breakfast and lunch, all YSD students are eligible regardless of income. If you do not already receive benefits, you will need to apply on or after June 30.  If you receive food assistance benefits already, the money will appear on your EBT on June 30.

    Update 7/6/20: We have been in contact with OSPI last week and they said that DSHS had the incorrect student list for Yakima School District which is why they turned down some parents; they are updating with the correct list which will show any student enrolled in Yakima School District that was grade K-12 in the school year 2019-2020 as eligible for PEBT.

    If you were denied, go to WashingtonConnections.org and apply again and see if their list has been updated. You can inform them Yakima is a CEP district.

  • Rocio Garcia is a Statewide Winner at the 47th Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show

    Posted by Trevor Greene on 5/29/2020

    State Art Winner

    Rocio Garcia, an 11th grade student at Davis High School, won this year’s OSPI Staff Choice Award for her pastel and chalk artwork titled “Boys Don’t Cry.” Rocio is a student of Davis art teacher Carole Huls, whose students have had art entries advance to OSPI’s state show during three of the past four years. The Davis High School student’s work depicts an older boy crying and wearing a crown of flowers on top of his head. The piece will be purchased for the ongoing display of student art at OSPI’s offices in Olympia.

    In recorded comments that were included in OSPI’s Facebook live presentation, Rocio said: “I think that both genders should be able to embrace emotion without any fear of judgment from others. The flowers on his head were added later on to represent the view society has that showing emotion is a feminine trait, and that femininity is weak and fragile, kind of like the flowers on the flower crown. But I also wanted to make sure that the flower crown was composed of gladiola flowers, which represent strength.”

    Rocio added in her recorded statement: “I don’t think femininity should be viewed as weak or fragile.”

    The 2020 statewide show was scheduled to be on exhibit in OSPI’s facilities at the Old Capitol Building in Olympia from April through the end of May. Instead, all 113 pieces in this year’s show are being made available for viewing from OSPI’s Arts website at https://www.k12.wa.us/student-success/awards-recognition/superintendents-high-school-art-show-0.

    A recording of the 100-minute awards presentation by OSPI is available on the organization’s Facebook site at www.facebook.com/waOSPI/videos/vb.10150120134315113/709287502947413/?type=2&theater. (Rocio’s award is presented at about the 12:00-minute mark. The Honorable Mention presentations involving Berger start at about the 1:16:15 mark.)

  • AC Davis Film Production Class Nominated for a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Award

    Posted by Jeff Rist on 5/1/2020
    Film Production teacher Jeff Rist found out some amazing news about our Film Production class at Davis High School on April 30.
     
    The zero period Film Production class creates a weekly "newscast" for all the students. This newscast is call DNN, standing for Davis News Network.  The shows produced on December 13th 2019 and February 7, 2020 have both been nominated for a prestigious award from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).  Many people refer to this as an EMMY.  (but technically they don't use that name).  
     
    The chapter of the NATAS that we are in is the Northwest Chapter.  It covers Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.  The NATAS has a High School student division with a category:  Magazine (News Magazine).  
     
    There are only four nominated entries in this category and the AC Davis Film Production class received TWO of the four nominations! 
     
    These students take a lot of pride in their work.  They start class at 7am.  They typically only have 4 days to complete a show.  Starting on Friday they see what stories are needed for the following week.  They begin recording, interviewing, editing on Monday.  Anchors are recorded on Tuesday and the final show is submitted to the instructor on Thursday morning for review. 
     
    Early part of June we will find out the winner of this award, this truly is an honor to be nominated!

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

    Trevor Greene, Superintendent
