  • 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.

  • "The world is full of kind people.. If you can't find one be one" (Unknown)

    Posted by YSD Stories Account-Jenny Tenney on 12/17/2018

    At Ridgeview a group of students have put this quote into action by creating the Random Acts of Kindness Club.  The students volunteered to give up their lunch recess twice a week to meet and work towards furthering the culture of kindess at Ridgeview Elementary.  The club is part of the ongoing work of Jeff Clark and Becky Fernandez, two counselors who staff the calm room.  The calm room welcomes students who need a place to refocus their energy as well as presenting anti-bullying and personal space lessons.  The calm room is a vital part of the culture of Ridgeview Elementary.Kindess Club

  • Enhancing Math Skills at Ridgeview

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 12/17/2018

    Students at Ridgeview use the computer to enhance their math skills. IOed is an online program that offers students an exciting fun way to practice their math skills and give teachers the data they need to meet individual student needs.  In this picture the students in Mrs. Kelly McIlrath's third grade class, are practicing their multiplication and division skills.  Multiplication and division are important third grade concepts that all children should have a solid understanding of.  Ridgeview students use a variety of methods to increase their math skills and IOed is just one way they work to improve.
