  • 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.

  • Northwest Association of Blind Athletes Annual Spring Event at Eisenhower!

    Posted by Kina Blackburn on 4/11/2019

    On April 9th, students with visual impairments from all over the valley came to Eisenhower High School to participate in a Paralympic Experience. The Northwest Association of Blind Athletes (NWABA) has been providing this fantastic opportunity to our area for the past 4 years. Every spring, they provide our students with the opportunity to participate in activities such as tandem bike riding, goal ball, judo, track and field events, side by side soccer, beep baseball and much more! This year’s event included beep baseball and side by side soccer. This was the largest turn out for our event, 29 students participated in a fun-filled day of adapted sports! Students came from as far as Pasco, as close as West Valley and everywhere in between. This opportunity not only allows our students to become familiar with adapted sports, but also the chance to make new friends who face similar experiences and challenges. Families are also encouraged to attend the event and friendships have also blossomed between parents of students. The students also have the opportunity to participate in White Cane Day provided by NWABA annually in Selah every fall. These events have created friendships and the events turn more into reunions every year! We would like to thank Eisenhower High School for hosting such a valuable event and the PE team for their flexibility and support. Thank you also to NWABA for creating these experiences that allow our students to explore such a wide variety of adapted sports!
