Hybrid Learning Conferences

This week our elementary schools are hosting hybrid learning conferences. It is essential that families attend these conferences. Students will not be able to start the first day of hybrid learning on October 26th if their parent/guardian has not yet met with their teacher. If you have not scheduled your hybrid learning conference, please contact your child's teacher or a building administrator.

The Yakima Health District has issued guidance allowing schools to begin a staggered return to schools. We are excited for the opportunity to bring back our East Valley students sooner than originally expected.

Safe Start Update (September 22, 2020)

Attention East Valley Staff & Families, 

We continue to monitor our situation and are basing our return to hybrid or in-person instruction on the guidance we receive from the Yakima Health District. Based on preliminary discussions about the improvements that we’re seeing in the number of positive COVID cases in our county, we are hopeful that updated guidance will be issued from our local health authorities that allows us to start bringing more students back into our classrooms sooner than originally expected. We are currently working on a revised education plan with the Yakima Health District and plan to release our hybrid implementation model for our staff, parents and families in the next 10-14 days.  This plan will outline the logistics of bringing students back safely so that we are prepared to make a safe and smooth transition for our students, staff and families. We appreciate the patience and understanding that you have continued to show as we navigate this evolving situation.


On Monday, August 31, 2020, the USDA approved an extension to the waiver that allowed us to serve FREE MEALS to all East Valley kids ages 0-18 last spring. We will continue to offer our FREE BULK MEAL SERVICE this fall. Click the title for more details.

Click here or Chromebook & Hot Spot Checkout Dates & Times

We have Chromebooks for every student in grades K-12 in the district. We also have hot spots available for families who do not have access to internet. Families that need a device for their child(ren) should attend the device checkout time indicated for their school(s), as shown below. If you have multiple children that attend different schools, you will need to attend the checkout time at each school for which a device is required.

Reopening FAQ

We got a lot of great questions about virtual learning and the remote start to our 2020-2021 school year during our community forums last week. We added the answers to these questions on our website. Some topics include information on Chromebook checkout dates/times, meal services, technology support, school supplies, student/staff expectations, schedules and much more!
