Garfield Families----Monday Update
Dear Garfield Families:
By now you have learned of our emergency closure, which begins immediately.
To enforce social distancing, Garfield is now closed.
There is no school starting Monday, March 16, 2020 to until at least Friday, April 24, 2020.
If you did not revieve an email or robo call please download the YDS app and opt into phone and other notifications so you will recieve instant updates.
Here are other updates that you need to know.
STUDENT MEDICATION: If your child has medicine at school, a member of our health service team will be contacting you.
FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH: Beginning on Yeusday, March 17, 2020, Grad and Go food will be available on weekdays in the Garfield Parking lot from 10:30AM-12:30PM for children age 1-18 years of age. Each bag of food wil contain 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per day. Your child must be present to recieve food.
CHILD CARE: At this time the plan for childcare is for first responders and health care providers to start Monday, March 23, 2020. If you are a first responder or health care provider with children within YSD, email a copy of your work credentials to firstname.lastname@example.org to advise us of your need for care. More infomation will be sent to you at that time.
EXTENDED LEARNING: Right now we are not able to provide extended learning opportunities equitably to all our students. More information will be coming soon regarding online resources.
Please continue to check our wesite along with our district website for the most recent updates and information. In addition, our Garfield Instagram page also shares updates and ideas. Please follow us at Garfield.ysd.
Again, this is new territory for all of us. Our school may be closed, but together we will get through this challenging time. Thank you for your flexibility and patience.
On Monday, August 3, 2020, the Yakima School Board approved YSD's proposed Reopening Plan for OSPI. This is NOT an alert of how school will start in the fall (i.e. distance learning) but we expect that info from the health dept in 1-2 days. To review our plan, go online to www.YSD7.org/reopeningplan
The Summer Meals Program for 2020 will run from July 1st through August 5th. For details, please visit the following page: yakimaschools.org/SummerMeals
