  • Stage A fully remote/distance learning

    Barge-Lincoln Families,

    The Yakima School District will be in Stage A fully remote/distance learning for the first 18 weeks of school.  Teachers will work with their students virtually.  Your student is already enrolled in this model.  When the health department says we can return to in-person learning, we will move to the appropriate state of our reopening plan as quick as possible.  This will likely not happen until January 2021.  Another option for your student is a fully online school where the pace of the work is up to the student, with guidance from a Yakima School District teacher.  Kinder through 5th graders can participate in 100% online school and use the Edgenuity program but will remain enrolled at Barge-Lincoln Elementary.  If you would like your student to learn 100% online school please go to for more details.



    La etapa A es totalmente de aprendizaje a distancia

    Estimadas familias de Barge-Lincoln,

    El Distrito Escolar de Yakima estará en la Etapa A de nuestro plan de reapertura para el primer semestre del año escolar 2020-21. La etapa A es totalmente de aprendizaje a distancia. Los maestros trabajarán con sus estudiantes virtualmente. Su estudiante ya está inscrito en este modelo. En este modelo, cuando el departamento de salud dice que podemos volver al aprendizaje en persona, pasaremos a la etapa apropiada de nuestro plan de reapertura lo más rápido posible. Es probable que esto no suceda antes de enero 2021. Otra opción para su estudiante es una escuela completamente en línea donde el ritmo de trabajo depende del estudiante, con la guía de un maestro. Su trabajo de clase se hará a su ritmo a través de un producto en línea llamado Edgenuity con el apoyo de un maestro de YSD. Si desea que su estudiante aprenda a través de la escuela 100% en línea, vaya a para obtener más detalles.

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

  • Playground Renovation at Barge-Lincoln Elementary

    Posted by Hector Mendez on 6/4/2020

    Barge-Lincoln is getting a playground facelift this month.  With the support of Superintendent Trevor Greene, Asst. Superintendent Rob Darling and maintenance Assistant Direction Jay Baucom a Healthy Kids-Healthy Schools grant was submitted and approved by OSPI ealier this year in the tune of $146,000. Two playground will be constructed by the end of June.  One playground will support Transitional Kinder, Pre-K, Kinder and First graders while the other playground will support second through fifth grade students.  The Barge-Lincoln PTO, Champion's Centre and B-L staff initially planned a community build scheduled for late May but due to COVID-19 school closure this did not occur.  Landscape Structures will send their own team of engineers to construct both playgrounds.  Groundbreaking began Tuesday, June 2 by YSD maintenance and installation begins Monday, June 8.  Thank you to the YSD Maintenance Department, District Admin and community partners for your support.  We know our students deserve a new playground and will be thrilled to see it when they return to school in the fall.  Front Playground Area Back Playground
