• Notification Systems

    We at the Yakima School District strive to maintain strong communication lines between us and the families we serve. We use a variety of means to delivery information in order to extend the reach of our message. Below is a break down of the communication/notification platforms we use along with a description of the type of information delivered on each.

You can now manage how the district, and your child's school, deliver certain messages to you through our ParentLink portal. All you need is a Skyward account with an active email address. (Don't have a Skyward account?)

  • Student Information

    Communications containing student information go directly to authorized guardians through one of these platforms:

    • ParentSquare post or smart-alertwww.parentsquare.com
    • ParentSquare Community Groups (open to the public). 
    • StudentSquare (for secondary students).
    • Mail: Formal notices about a student may be mailed to a registered mailing address.
      Please ensure your school has a current mailing address where you can be reached.
    • Skyward: Also known as Family Access, this system is used to communicate grades, attendance, and other student records.
