  • Washington Apple Crunch October 7th!

    Posted by Melissa Lim on 10/12/2020



    Yakima School District participated for the first time in the state wide "Taste Washington Day," Washington Apple Crunch event on Wednesday, October 7th. The students who picked up meals received a fun handout sheet with apple facts, as well as a Washington grown apple so they could participate in the state wide celebration by biting into their apple with a CRUNCH! Our food service staff at Davis High school decided to join in themselves and are pictured below along with other food service staff throughout our differnt sites. 

    Did you know Washington State produces more apples than any other state in the United States? Harvest of these apples begins in August and goes through November and Yakima County is the leading county in Washington for apple production! On top of being an important economic part of the Yakima valley, apples also contribute some stellar nutrition! Apples contain antioxidants which help keep your cells healthy, vitamin c which can boost your immune system, and soluble fiber which helps lower cholesterol. Now there's something to celebrate, and if you ever get a chance to meet the growers and farmers of the next apple you take a bite of, remember to thank them for supplying you with a local, nutrition packed, delicious treat! Shout out to the Yakima Valley for being a noteworthy agricultural leader in our nation and for the Yakima School District featuring local produce.

    Thanks for tunining in with Food Services!

  • 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.

  • Rocio Garcia is a Statewide Winner at the 47th Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show

    Posted by Trevor Greene on 5/29/2020

    State Art Winner

    Rocio Garcia, an 11th grade student at Davis High School, won this year’s OSPI Staff Choice Award for her pastel and chalk artwork titled “Boys Don’t Cry.” Rocio is a student of Davis art teacher Carole Huls, whose students have had art entries advance to OSPI’s state show during three of the past four years. The Davis High School student’s work depicts an older boy crying and wearing a crown of flowers on top of his head. The piece will be purchased for the ongoing display of student art at OSPI’s offices in Olympia.

    In recorded comments that were included in OSPI’s Facebook live presentation, Rocio said: “I think that both genders should be able to embrace emotion without any fear of judgment from others. The flowers on his head were added later on to represent the view society has that showing emotion is a feminine trait, and that femininity is weak and fragile, kind of like the flowers on the flower crown. But I also wanted to make sure that the flower crown was composed of gladiola flowers, which represent strength.”

    Rocio added in her recorded statement: “I don’t think femininity should be viewed as weak or fragile.”

    The 2020 statewide show was scheduled to be on exhibit in OSPI’s facilities at the Old Capitol Building in Olympia from April through the end of May. Instead, all 113 pieces in this year’s show are being made available for viewing from OSPI’s Arts website at https://www.k12.wa.us/student-success/awards-recognition/superintendents-high-school-art-show-0.

    A recording of the 100-minute awards presentation by OSPI is available on the organization’s Facebook site at www.facebook.com/waOSPI/videos/vb.10150120134315113/709287502947413/?type=2&theater. (Rocio’s award is presented at about the 12:00-minute mark. The Honorable Mention presentations involving Berger start at about the 1:16:15 mark.)
