Dear parents or guardians,
It has come to our attention that many students are being dropped off or are arriving at school as early as 7:30. We do not provide supervision of students until 8:00. Leaving your child outside of the school unattended is extremely unsafe. Please do not drop students off or have them walk to school before 8:00 in the morning. For working parents and parents that may need child care we do offer child care before and after school through the YMCA BASE program. Thank you for your understanding as safety is our top priority.
Parents and Guardians, do you have concerns about your child's behavior at school? Do you think that he/she might benefit from some behavior interventions at school? Contact your child's teacher and share these concerns with them. You can request that your concerns be reviewed by our Building Student Education team.
Classes begin at 8:45 a.m. with breakfast at 8:15. Classes end at 3:15 on Tuesdays through Fridays, and 2:15 on Mondays.Please drop your student(s) off no earlier than 8:15 a.m. as there is no supervision.
Our parking lot is often very crowded. Remember the area in front of the building is for pick-up and drop-off only.
Please do not pick your child up early from school if at all possible. Our teachers need the entire instructional day to ensure your child receives a quality education. If your child needs to be checked out early it will need to be pre-arranged through the office by 2:00/12:00 Mondays, due to end of the day transitions and traffic in the office. Thank you!
Thank you, voters.

With full funding from Gesa Credit Union, the Yakima community plus visitors to Zaepfel Stadium at 40th Ave and Tieton Drive will soon see a new scoreboard.
The City of Yakima and the Yakima School District have been productively engaged in cooperative work to advance the installation of the new display. The City of Yakima officially issued the permit to the Yakima School District today (2-7-20).
The next steps include sign production by Daktronics and sign installation. An installation schedule is not yet available but YSD is hopeful it can take place over the summer of 2020.
The existing scoreboard, although renovated by Pepsi throughout the years, has been in place since 1969. The new sign is larger in size, more modern in presentation, and includes video playback. The technology included with the new sign provides opportunities for classroom learning in video production for students at Davis and Eisenhower High Schools and Stanton Academy.
Gesa Credit Union is covering 100% of the cost of the sign and the sign installation.

The High School and Beyond Plan process is a graduation requirement that supports students in exploring their interests, planning high school coursework that is aligned to those interests, keeping track of major assessment scores, and logging work and other relevant experience. The Plan is designed to enable students to successfully pursue education or training after they graduate high school. https://readywa.org/beyond/en/
