  • 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.

  • Illustrator Inspires Gilbert Students

    Posted by Judith Strosahl on 3/11/2020

    On Feb. 25, children's book illustrator, Craig Orback, spoke to Gilbert students about his recent Born to Draw Comics: the Story of Charles Schulz and the Creation of Peanuts.  Students had been learning how illustrations help us understand what we are reading.  As a young artist, Orback had been inspired by Schulz' work, just as Schulz was inspired by cartoonists of his childhood. We learned about Orback's research into Schulz' life, and the many drafts before a book is published. Each grade level presentation ended with a fun drawing lesson!  Big thanks to The Yakima Schools Foundation for generously funding Mr. Orback's visit!Student drawings! Craig Orback with 3rd graders. Quick draw - 1st grade Thank you YSD Foundation!

  • What a Fiesta!

    Posted by Stephanie Rosbach on 12/16/2019

    Kindergarten students read a story about Paletas, which are Mexican-style Popsicles in their reading curriculum. Gilbert Kindergarteners were very lucky last week, because Fiesta Foods donated a Paleta for each student to try! The kids were thrilled! Thank you so much Fiesta Foods for your generosity!

    Cheers!
