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!

Following Governor Inslee’s press conference yesterday, the Yakima County Health District made their official recommendations for a virtual start for schools in Yakima County. Given the guidelines outlined in the WA State Department of Health’s Decision Tree for Provision of In Person Learning Among K-12 Students at Public and Private Schools During the COVID-19 Pandemic document, and this strong recommendation from our local health authorities, we would like to confirm that our East Valley Schools will begin 100% virtual with an enhanced distance learning model on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, as indicated in our released draft communication earlier this week.

Virtual Learning Parent PD Sessions

As we move forward into our virtual start to the 2020-2021 school year, we want to make sure that we're meeting the needs of our families in supporting distancing learning at home. We will be offering a Parent PD series to make sure that we help equip our families with the digital tools they need in order to ensure that their kids are successful through this remote start.
