The USDA has announced waivers to allow free meals for all children 18 and under through June 30, 2021. Contact your local school district to see if they are serving free meals for children and/or students. Many are offering curbside service for non school-aged children or those that don't attend their district.

A Message from our Superintendent,
Fall Conferences
Dear Prosser Parents and Guardians;
Prosser School District will be rescheduling fall conferences due to the delayed start of school.   The staff wants to ensure that the conferences are meaningful, and that student growth data represents growth over time.  Dates that would have been scheduled as conference dates, will now be normal school days. Please watch for a “Save the Date” announcement with the newly identified dates that will be sent on behalf of the Prosser School District.
Thank you for your continued support,
Matt Ellis 

COVID UPDATE: 9/30/2020
Dear Prosser Parents and Patrons; 
Prosser School District has always given a top priority to maintaining the health and wellness of your child. This commitment to you and your family is the primary reason why we engaged in preventative measures like limiting access to our buildings and providing students with devices for this fall. Because of our proactivity and commitment to recommended safety precautions, our county has experienced a decrease in the number of COVID cases. 
As we have worked with experts from our county and state, we have learned that the risk of transmitting the virus is still a factor and that when the district reopens; we will need to develop safety protocols and procedures for our staff and students. Although the Benton-Franklin Health District and Yakima Health District now support the reopening of schools, they have allowed districts to move at their own pace and make locally based decisions about reopening. In order to ensure the safety of your child, we believe that the safest path forward is to engage in reopening conversations in a slow and deliberate manner. As we begin to plan for a return to school, we will continue to monitor the COVID data, identify ways to prevent it from spreading, and seek out best practices for a hybrid-learning format. 
As we pursue these conversations, I ask for your grace and patience. I know that the spring, summer, and this fall have been difficult seasons, but I promise you that we will get back to school as safely and as quickly as possible. 
For Kids,
Matt Ellis 

It's more than a Meal Application
Our meal application affects many areas. PSD asks that ALL families complete our meal applications to ensure continued funding to support ALL students in our district. For more information, please see the attached flyer.

Important Message from the Assistant Superintendent:

Dear parents/guardians,
The Prosser School District is excited to offer free meal delivery services to our students who do not reside within walking distance of our schools. Students within walking distance will be able to pick up meals at Housel Middle School, Keene Riverview Elementary and Prosser High School from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monday – Friday on school days.
In order for the district to provide meals for students, parents must complete a 'Consent for Home Delivery' form. Meals will be delivered to your bus stop starting Tuesday, September 8th. Delivery will be at your normal bus pick-up time with an “air honk” from the bus driver to let you know they’ve arrived (please allow some time as this is a new process and timing might not be perfect).
If you are able to print this form and have it completed, you can give it to the bus driver when they arrive with meals. If you are unable to print, there will be extra copies available on the buses for parents to complete when meals arrive the first day. If parents are unavailable on the first day of meal delivery, the driver will leave a copy for completion and pick it up on the next delivery date.
After this Tuesday and Thursday delivery, meals will be delivered every Tuesday with Tuesday and Wednesday meals, and delivered again on Thursday for Thursday, Friday and Monday meals. This will be the setup until we are able to establish our regular rotation.
We hope to see you all at meal delivery!
Deanna Flores
Assistant Superintendent   

Important message from the Superintendent:

In the past several weeks, the Prosser School District has worked hard to prepare itself for Distance Learning 2.0.  Because of some of the logistical realities in offering instruction in an online format, we are encountering barriers which are prohibiting us from creating a positive experience for your child.  Due to our current realities, we believe that it is best to postpone the start of school for one week.  By doing this, we believe that we will be better able to serve you and your children and that our students will have more time to become familiar with their devices and the platforms being used.  therefore, our new start date for the 2020-2021 school year will be September 8th.  We look forward to seeing you then.  

We know you have been anxiously awaiting the schedule for 2020-21. Below is the link for the first trimester of student schedules.  If you have any questions, please contact your building principal.

Dear Families, 
Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children may be eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program. 
P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for the cost of meals while school was
closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades k-12 who receive free or reduced­price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries.
If your family has lost income since schools closed, you may be eligible for free or reduced¬≠price school meals. You can find out if you are eligible and how to apply by calling Child Nutrition at (509) 786-2848 or go online to 
Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT - it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test. P-EBT is intended to replace meals missed while schools closed due to COVID-19. Children are allowed to get free meals from school and community sites and get P-EBT at the same time - they are separate programs.
If your family does not receive Basic Food, you must apply for P-EBT if you want to receive the funds. The application will be open by June 30. There are two ways to apply: 
Go to:, or
Call DSHS at 877-501-2233
See the attached flyer for more information about P-EBT. 
We want to make sure all of our students stay healthy and grow strong.
