  • Wednesday, Oct. 29—Kami and Chrome Updates! 

    Students use a program called Kami to complete many assignments. We started seeing a problem with Kami today and want to show you how to make it work! 

    To open an assignment in Kami: 

    • Click on the three dots menu when the preview of the assignment opens.
    • Choose "Open in new window."
    • Then, click on "Open with Kami."
    • Continue using Kami as usual.  

    Here's a quick how-to video that Mrs. Roscher made: 

    Also, remember that we're getting an important Google Chrome update today at 3 pm, so leave your computer connected to the internet to automatically download this update.  Thank you!

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

    Posted by Rachel Garza on 5/3/2020

    While it is true that schools are closed, Learning is not! Roosevelt administrators, teachers, and support staff have been actively communicating daily with students and their respective families. Through various points of contact and two-way communication such as phone calls, voicemails, mailed letters, and post cards home, Remind app notifications, emails, Google meets, Roosevelt Webpage, Roosevelt Booster Club Facebook page, preparing/distributing learning packets, and meals; Roosevelt staff has had an estimated 6,000+ interactions with families regarding their child's education and social emotional well-being. At Roosevelt we follow BEAR expectations. That means that Roosevelt Bears will: Be safe, Expect success, Act responsibly, Respect all. Since 1903, Roosevelt has been a great place to learn and grow- we truly withhold a strong legacy and great future despite unprecedented times. It is times like this, as a staff, we persevere, support, and maintain our mantra: "We are BEARS!" #RooseveltRocks #RooseveltStrong #YSDpride

  • Free Books to Read at Home for Roosevelt 1st-Graders

    Posted by Laura Harper on 4/22/2020

    Families of Roosevelt 1st-graders drove through the Roosevelt bus lane on Tuesday to pick up sets of free, brand-new books. These books build families' home libraries and help our 1st-graders keep their reading skills strong during school and library closures. The Roosevelt 1st-grade team was able to provide these books free of charge through the support of an Ellison Education Grant from the Ellison Foundation. The grant funded a set of monthly breakfast and literacy events called Breakfast Bites and Books.  Each month this school year, 1st-grade families had been gathering in their classrooms to enjoy catered breakfasts and fun activities, and  then received free books for home libraries.  With the Roosevelt building closed, the Ellison Foundation allowed the grant to continue to fund the purchase of books for home libraries.  Roosevelt is grateful for the generous contribution of the Ellison Foundation, an organization in Bellevue, WA, that supports educational initiatives that create lifelong achievement and address the needs of our community’s families.
