    Dear Franklin Families,

    Last week we rolled out our Franklin Weekly Assignment and Teacher Schedule.  I have included it again in this letter.

    This week I would like to add the addition of a STAFF tab, located on this school webpage, in the blue band (see image). I have boxed the word in white.

    Staff menu location in navigation bar.

     If you click on the tab, the following information is available:

    • Teacher names, grade level taught, subject taught, and contact information
    • Where to find assignments for each specific teacher
    • Office hours of each teacher
    • Assignment drop times of each teacher.

    Franklin teachers will follow the weekly schedule listed below to better support our families.  After the schedule, I have explained abbreviations and terms.

YSD Stories

  • YSD Girls Inspired to Explore STEM During Visit to Microsoft

    Posted by Manuel Rodriguez on 10/11/2018

    Technologchicas GameOn

    Students from Franklin and Washington Middle Schools (WMS) visited Microsoft on October 5, to attend a Nuevo Foundation workshop focused on encouraging female students to consider careers in STEM fields.  The 22 girls, who are also part of Central Washington University’s Game On! program, engaged in hands-on activities, connected with STEM professionals from Microsoft, Google, NASA, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology, and toured the Microsoft campus.  The impact of this experience on the students was immediate. “I wanted to be a nurse, but now I want to work for NASA because one of the ladies inspired me to be an engineer.  I think it’s fascinating because you design things to go on the NASA spaceship,” WMS seventh-grader Dayana Abundiz said.

    CWU Game On! is a free program for middle-- and high school students that educates them about core values, leadership, social and digital literacy, and college-ready skills by using computer and soccer training. The free program is made available through a partnership with the Yakima School District, the Real Madrid Foundation, Microsoft, and Central Washington University. Learn more at

District Announcements

  • Drive-In Graduation Events Canceled (5/26/20)

    May 26, 2020, Yakima, WA - At this time, the Yakima School District regrets that we have canceled drive-in graduation events for Eisenhower, Davis, and Stanton.  In recent communications with the Yakima Health District and guidelines set forth by the governor, we have determined that any celebration, other than virtual, is highly unlikely. The District, in conjunction with high school leadership at Eisenhower, Davis, Stanton and Yakima Online, will not facilitate or support a drive-in or virtual watch party, due to the growing concern of the number of infections in Yakima County and our lingering Phase 1 reopening status.

    While the district is still hopeful that a June 13 procession down Yakima Avenue to honor our graduates could happen, there are growing doubts, due to the status of Yakima County as a COVID-19 hotspot. This processional is something that we know our graduating seniors deserve but it may not be possible. We hope to provide updated information on the possibility of the June 13 processional on June 1.

    Class of 2020 Seniors – please check your specific high school’s website for more graduation details.

  • June 17 is the last day of school for YSD students

    According to guidance from OSPI, unless districts can show that student learning was NOT impacted by the emergency closures (either loss of instructional days, loss of instructional hours per day, or both) districts are required to add five (5) days at the end of the school year. For the Yakima School District, that means June 17th will be the final day of distance learning for the 2019-20 school year. Support will be available to students via distance learning through June 17.

  • Be Counted! 2020 Census

    Census 2020 The census is a way for our community to seek the necessary financial support from the government that it needs.  Our schools depend on the census count for accurate program funding. In mid-March, you will receive an invitation to participate in the census from the Census Bureau. Be sure to count everyone in your household - even infants.  Responding to the census is the law, however, it is against the law for the Census Bureau to inquire about personal information such as immigration status.  It is illegal for the Census Bureau to pass on your contact information to other government entities. They use your contact info, such as your name and address, to know if you have already been counted. Once you have responded, you will no longer receive notices from the Census Bureau and a census worker will not come to your home.  If you have any questions, we have put together videos and information for you online at
