Celebrating Our Classified Staff
This week, along with districts across the state and country, we are honored to celebrate classified employee appreciation week in the East Valley School District .
Classified staff are our employees who support the education of our students by managing front offices, preparing and serving lunches, tending to sick kids, working in small groups with students to provide academic support, keeping school grounds, buildings and buses maintained and safe, transporting our students to and from school, keeping kids safe on our playgrounds and for making sure computers and classroom technology continue to function and so much more. It truly takes all employees working together to educate our students. The support our classified employees provide our district is critical to student success.
I encourage the entire community to join me in celebrating these dedicated and hardworking team members for their commitment to providing high quality education and positive experiences for our children, every day, in every school across our district. Classified employees deserve our gratitude and appreciation not only this week, but all year long for their important contributions to our community.
Thank you classified staff for all you do!

Although the groundhog predicted spring, all we saw was snow this February. We know that when bad weather hits the Yakima Valley, parents are anxiously waiting to hear whether our schools are going to be on-time, delayed or cancelled.

Over the last few weeks, we've been asked a few great questions...
1. Why don't we make our decisions and announcements the night before?
We simply don't know what our decision will be until the morning of. Weather forecasts/weather conditions can change, as can the roads. In the past when we have announced delays the night prior and then had to change to cancellation, we had confusion and frustrated families that had to, once again, change their plans. We have found that it is best to make our decisions and announcements when we have the most accurate information available.
2. Why do we have school when other local schools don't?

We don't make our decisions based on what other districts are doing; we base them on the conditions in our district, on our roads. We wake up and begin driving roads at 3:30 in the morning. We assess road conditions to determine whether our buses can safely transport students to and from school. Once we are ready to make our decisions related to transportation and school operation, we try to send a notification out to the news media and our families no later than 6:00 AM. If weather conditions change significantly and our delay turns into a closure, we will try to send an update to our community by 7:30 a.m.

3. Will we have to make up our snow day?
As soon as we can be sure that additional winter storms will not initiate further school closures, we will review our academic calendar and communicate potential changes to our families.

We thank our families and staff for your patience and understanding through this wintery weather. We always encourage families to prepare for inclement weather and make sure to have a care plan in place for children, should you need to report for employment. For more information about our weather notifications, visit

Our doors and phones are always open. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

As we have begun to review mid-year assessment data, we are encouraged by the high levels of student growth and achievement we are seeing in our buildings. We know that this is a direct reflection of the hard work of our teachers and administrators to develop targeted educational plans to meet the needs of all East Valley children.
We also recognize that there is a direct relationship between missing fewer than 2 school days each month and academic success. Knowing this, we have focused on continued improvements in student attendance over the last few school years. This year our percentage of students attending 90% of the time is up by 4%, or approximately 120 students. It is encouraging to see our students and families prioritizing education and being on time and present in our schools.
With state testing scheduled to start after we return from spring break, we want to remind families to stay engaged and communicate with your children about where they feel they need support. If your child is struggling in school, please contact their teachers so that we can get them the help they need now!
