• Automated Phone Call Opt-Out

    The Yakima School district may occasionally contact families through an automated phone call system. Under federal regulation, you have the option to opt-out of receiving these calls. If you would like to opt-out, continue reading below. Alternatively, you may be able to reduce the number of calls you get by modifying your delivery preferences in ParentLink.

    To submit an official request to have a phone number removed from our automated call list, please fill out and submit the online opt-out form available here:

    Opt-out Request Form

    Please note:

    • Only one request should be submitted per phone number
    • Requests may take up to 24 hours to be processed

    • Opting out of automated calls does NOT remove a phone number from the emergency contact list
