  • Welcome Franklin Quakers and Parents,

    As was announced this week, the Yakima School District will be in a Stage A reopening plan for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year. Stage A is fully remote/distance learning.

    The school year will begin on August 26, 2020. We are scheduled to remain in STAGE A for one school semester or 18 weeks. The district will continuously re-evaluate with the hope that we can move to some in-person learning sooner.

    Over the next couple of weeks we will continue to keep you informed of any changes to the learning and teaching process. Please continue to monitor our school webpage, as well as the district webpage. We will be posting videos and information regarding school orientation, learning schedules, meal distribution, laptop checkout, Internet access, and more. And, thank you for your continued patience and unity as we move forward in this unprecedented time together.

    Information is continuously being updated on the district Reopening Information website at www.YSD7.org/reopen

    You may email teachers and administration directly-email addresses are listed in the staff directory on this webpage.

    Stay safe and stay tuned!

    Mrs. Anderson

    On Monday, August 3, 2020, the Yakima School Board approved YSD's proposed Reopening Plan for OSPI. This is NOT an alert of how school will start in the fall (i.e. distance learning) but we expect that info from the health dept in 1-2 days. To review our plan, go online to www.YSD7.org/reopeningplan

  • 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.

  • YSD Girls Inspired to Explore STEM During Visit to Microsoft

    Posted by Manuel Rodriguez on 10/11/2018

    Technologchicas GameOn

    Students from Franklin and Washington Middle Schools (WMS) visited Microsoft on October 5, to attend a Nuevo Foundation workshop focused on encouraging female students to consider careers in STEM fields.  The 22 girls, who are also part of Central Washington University’s Game On! program, engaged in hands-on activities, connected with STEM professionals from Microsoft, Google, NASA, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology, and toured the Microsoft campus.  The impact of this experience on the students was immediate. “I wanted to be a nurse, but now I want to work for NASA because one of the ladies inspired me to be an engineer.  I think it’s fascinating because you design things to go on the NASA spaceship,” WMS seventh-grader Dayana Abundiz said.

    CWU Game On! is a free program for middle-- and high school students that educates them about core values, leadership, social and digital literacy, and college-ready skills by using computer and soccer training. The free program is made available through a partnership with the Yakima School District, the Real Madrid Foundation, Microsoft, and Central Washington University.
