  • Cadet Family,

    Monday, November 2, we will be starting the second quarter of the school year. Students will be focused on periods 2, 4, 6, and advisory. The daily schedule has changed to allow studnets to see their classroom teachers everyday. Our goal is for this change is to allow staff and students the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions more frequently. The daily contact should increase student academic success.

  • Washington Apple Crunch October 7th!

    Posted by Melissa Lim on 10/12/2020

     

     

    Yakima School District participated for the first time in the state wide "Taste Washington Day," Washington Apple Crunch event on Wednesday, October 7th. The students who picked up meals received a fun handout sheet with apple facts, as well as a Washington grown apple so they could participate in the state wide celebration by biting into their apple with a CRUNCH! Our food service staff at Davis High school decided to join in themselves and are pictured below along with other food service staff throughout our differnt sites. 

    Did you know Washington State produces more apples than any other state in the United States? Harvest of these apples begins in August and goes through November and Yakima County is the leading county in Washington for apple production! On top of being an important economic part of the Yakima valley, apples also contribute some stellar nutrition! Apples contain antioxidants which help keep your cells healthy, vitamin c which can boost your immune system, and soluble fiber which helps lower cholesterol. Now there's something to celebrate, and if you ever get a chance to meet the growers and farmers of the next apple you take a bite of, remember to thank them for supplying you with a local, nutrition packed, delicious treat! Shout out to the Yakima Valley for being a noteworthy agricultural leader in our nation and for the Yakima School District featuring local produce.

  • 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.

    Way to go Cadets! We are extremely excited for you!

    About the scholarship: The Washington Apple Education Foundation (WAEF) is the charity of the tree fruit industry.  Our mission is to impact lives through access to educational opportunities. WAEF is supported by generous contributions made annually by the growers, packers and supporters in Washington’s tree fruit industry.  This year WAEF is awarding over $1 million to students whose parents are employed in the tree fruit industry.  310 students received WAEF scholarships this year.  80% of the foundation’s current scholarship recipients are first-generation college students. When students receive a WAEF scholarship, they join a community of volunteers, donors and WAEF alumni dedicated to supporting them achieving their educational goals.  The foundation’s priority for its scholarship recipients isn’t just that they attend college; instead it is they graduate from college on-time and career ready.  WAEF students are able to renew their scholarships throughout their undergraduate years.
