  • Arlando Lara

    The Yakima School District is proud to announce the hiring of Arlando Lara as a new assistant principal at Wilson Middle School.

    Arlando is returning to the valley having grown up and graduated from high school in Toppenish. After attending Pacific Lutheran University he began his teaching career in the Bethel School District and subsequently worked as an assistant principal in the Kent and Tacoma school districts. He also served as principal for the Washington Virtual Academy.

    His wife, Jessica also works in education as part of the non-profit sector. Their children keep them very busy, with Avalyn beginning her sophomore year at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Their daughters Bryn (senior), Ariah (8th grade), and son Riley (6th grade) round out the Lara family. The family enjoys camping around the state anywhere near the water! Arlando looks forward to contributing to the already quality work being done at Wilson Middle School and cannot wait to connect and build relationships with families and students.

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