  • EBT Funds Available to All YSD Students

    Posted by YSD Food Services on 6/29/2020

    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.

While the schools are now closed due to COVID-19, we don't want our students to miss this special opportunity to showcase their talents! The exhibit originated at Washington Middle School in 1999 thanks to its founding director/teacher Leslie Pease. Our devoted team of art educators strive to enhance every student's creative potential and provide equal opportunity for each child. In celebration of our youth and vibrant community of artists, we thank you for your continued support of Yakima Schools and the Arts!

  • 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
