UPDATED MAY 18th -Class of 2020 Graduation Information
Dear Class of 2020 & Families,

Naches Valley School District has come to a decision for the date of graduation for the Class of 2020. This decision was made with input from the Washington State Department of Health, directives from our state government, and the survey that was sent out earlier this month.

Naches Valley High School will host graduation on Saturday, June 13th at 12:00PM.

The delivery model of graduation will be dependent on which phase Yakima County is in (see https://coronavirus.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2020-05/PhasedReopeningChart.pdf).

If Yakima County is in Phase 2 as of Monday, June 8th, Naches Valley High School will host a drive-thru graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 13th at Naches Valley High School. Specific details will follow soon.

If Yakima County remains in Phase 1 as of Monday, June 8th, Naches Valley High School will host a virtual ceremony on Saturday, June 13th. Specific details will follow soon.

This decision was not made lightly. We understand that this graduation ceremony will not be what we all envisioned before COVID. Our priority is the health and safety of our graduates and our community. We wish there was an option that would please everyone, but unfortunately that is not our current reality.

The last day for seniors to turn in work is June 5th. All High School and Beyond Plans must be completed for students to graduate. The High School and Beyond Plan is not waivable by Naches Valley School District.

Look for more detailed information in the upcoming week.

Until then, stay healthy!

Sincerely,
Rich Rouleau, Principal

Dear Clase de 2020 & Familias, distrito escolar del valle de

Naches ha llegado a una decisión para la fecha de graduación para la clase de 2020. Esta decisión fue tomada con las aportaciones del Departamento de Salud del Estado de Washington, las directivas de nuestro gobierno estatal y la encuesta que se envió a principios de este mes.

Naches Valley High School organizará la graduación el sábado 13 de junio a las 12:00PM.

El modelo de entrega de graduación dependerá de la fase en la que se encuentra el condado de Yakima (ver: https://coronavirus.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2020-05/PhasedReopeningChart.pdf).

Si el condado de Yakima está en la Fase 2 a partir del lunes 8 de junio, Naches Valley High School organizará una ceremonia de graduación el sábado 13 de junio en Naches Valley High School. Los detalles específicos seguirán pronto.

Si el condado de Yakima permanece en la Fase 1 a partir del lunes 8 de junio, Naches Valley High School organizará una ceremonia virtual el sábado 13 de junio. Los detalles específicos seguirán pronto.

Esta decisión no se tomó a la ligera. Entendemos que esta ceremonia de graduación no será lo que todos imaginamos ante COVID. Nuestra prioridad es la salud y seguridad de nuestros graduados y de nuestra comunidad. Desearíamos que hubiera una opción que complacera a todos, pero desafortunadamente esa no es nuestra realidad actual.

El último día para que las personas mayores entreguen el trabajo es el 5 de junio. Todos los planes de la escuela secundaria y más allá deben ser completados para que los estudiantes se gradúen. El Plan de La Escuela Secundaria y Más Allá no es renunciable por el Distrito Escolar del Valle de Naches.

Buscar información más detallada en la próxima semana.

Hasta entonces, ¡mantente saludable!

Sinceramente,
Rich Rouleau, Director

McKinney-Vento (Homeless Services)

about 1 year ago

The Naches School District McKinney-Vento program is designed to assist homeless and at-risk students and their families within the Naches School District. The program strives to ensure that students experiencing homelessness are able to enroll as quickly as possible, and that they have the same access to educational opportunities as non-homeless students.

 

If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Richard Rouleau 509-653-1601 or Lori Gylling 509-653-1813.


The McKinney-Vento Act  
The Secretary issues guidelines for States related to requirements under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These guidelines address ways in which a State may (1) assist local educational agencies (LEAs) to implement the provisions related to homeless children and youths amended by the ESSA and (2) review and revise policies and procedures that may present barriers to the identification, enrollment, attendance, and success of homeless children and youths in school.  http://nche.ed.gov/legis/mv.php

 
  Homeless Definition

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act defines homelessness as the following living situations:

  • Shelter, vehicle, campground, tent, etc.
  • Street, 24-hour restaurants, bus stations, etc.
  • Motel
  • Displaced due to natural disaster (hurricane, flood, earthquake, etc.)
  •  Abandoned building, trailer, tent, etc.
  • Doubled up with friends or relatives due to inability to pay for any affordable     housing
  •  “Couch surfing”
  • “Bounced around” from family member to family member, or one household to another
  • Unaccompanied youth living on their own

The McKinney-Vento Liaison or designee will determine whether a student qualifies for McKinney-Vento supports based on responses to the NVSD Student Housing Questionnaire.


 Rights of Students who are Identified as Homeless

  • Once identified as homeless, as per McKinney-Vento, you have the right to register your child (student) at school even if you do not have full documentation (such as immunization records, utility bill, birth certificate, etc.,) available at the time of enrollment.
  • Once registered, your child can begin attending school within 1 or 2 days.
  • If deemed in the best educational interests of the child, the student(s) have the right to stay in the same school for the remainder of the school year, even if you move.
  • Depending on the individual circumstances, your student(s) will be provided with transportation to and from with school buses, city bus passes, or gas vouchers.
  •  Your student(s) are entitled to free lunch and breakfast without the need to fill out the form.
  •  Your student must not be isolated or stigmatized.
  •  The above services continue until the end of the school year in which homelessness ends for that family.
  •  Each school district must have a McKinney-Vento liaison. (Please see contact information at the top of the web page.)
