• Happy Summer Hoover Huskies!

    I hope this message finds you doing well and staying safe. We are proud of the initiative and accountability our students and staff have demonstrated toward learning during this pandemic. As summer progresses, our Hoover community continues to support each other as we sail through these uncharted waters. From connecting families to food resources, first responders to childcare, and students to remote learning and support, our Hoover Family continues to positively impact student learning.   HOOVER ROCKS!

    To our students, we ask that you please continue reading at least 30 minutes every day and visit the  YSD website for links to more learning.

    We thank all of our students, parents/guardians, staff, and community members for practicing patience as we continue with the planning of reopening our schools.

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.
