School Safety

The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. Information found in this section of the website will assist parents and families in the event of an emergency. Please note that due to safety concerns, staff and students may be asked by law enforcement to turn off cell phones during a crisis situation. This is an emergency management best practice. Police do not want parents to come to school to retrieve their children, because that could put the parent in danger and/or could compromise the police investigation.

For questions or comments regarding school safety, please contact Safety & Security Director Sara Cordova at 509-573-7031 or


In the event of an emergency such as a threat to campus, snow, windstorms, earthquake, or similar events, Yakima School District may change school start or dismissal times for student safety. We will communicate with parents through the following ways. 


Text, email, phone call, and app notification.
