YSD Stories

  • 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 and apply again and see if their list has been updated. You can inform them Yakima is a CEP district.

    Posted by Hector Mendez on 6/4/2020

    Barge-Lincoln is getting a playground facelift this month.  With the support of Superintendent Trevor Greene, Asst. Superintendent Rob Darling and maintenance Assistant Direction Jay Baucom a Healthy Kids-Healthy Schools grant was submitted and approved by OSPI ealier this year in the tune of $146,000. Two playground will be constructed by the end of June.  One playground will support Transitional Kinder, Pre-K, Kinder and First graders while the other playground will support second through fifth grade students.  The Barge-Lincoln PTO, Champion's Centre and B-L staff initially planned a community build scheduled for late May but due to COVID-19 school closure this did not occur.  Landscape Structures will send their own team of engineers to construct both playgrounds.  Groundbreaking began Tuesday, June 2 by YSD maintenance and installation begins Monday, June 8.  Thank you to the YSD Maintenance Department, District Admin and community partners for your support.  We know our students deserve a new playground and will be thrilled to see it when they return to school in the fall.  Front Playground Area Back Playground

  • 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
