Media Requests

The Sunnyside School District is committed to success for all students by providing a safe and positive learning environment with clear academic goals and high expectations for all of our students. The safety and privacy of our students, teachers and all District personnel is a high priority and taken very seriously.

The SSD Communications Department will make every reasonable effort to provide information which is a matter of public record to media outlets when and if it becomes available and is in compliance with State and Federal law, specifically but not limited to Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), both of which can be accessed at the U.S. Department of Education website at

Members of the media are not permitted on any SSD property (including parking lots and bus loading/unloading zones) without the prior consent or invitation of the Superintendent or Communications Director. 

All requests for information to include, but not limited to interviews, photos, statements, and statistics, should be directed to the Communications Director who will contact the appropriate spokesperson and/or provide public information when and if it is available.

In the event that any incident involves a formal investigation the school district will defer all comment to the investigating agency, including but not limited to local, state and federal law enforcement, and fire departments.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the Communications Director, Jessica Morgan, at 509-836-8703 or by email to [email protected]
