Update May 10, 2021

Beginning this Friday, May 14, Sunnyside High School will return to a school schedule as close to normal as possible under new guidelines announced yesterday by the Yakima Health Department


At Sunnyside High School, this means space between students will reduce from 6 feet to 3 feet while they are in their classrooms, and students will be able to transition between their classes. Students will still be required to wear masks and provide their attestation forms each day. 


All students are encouraged and welcome back to the building on Friday, we hope you see you there!


Update March 26, 2021

On March 25, Governor Inslee announced that the state of Washington and the Washington State Department of Health would be following the CDC's guidelines that students could be seated with three feet of distance, which is a reduction from the current requirement of six feet of distance. The Governor also stated that the decision to transition from the six feet to three feed would be left to individual school districts.

The Sunnyside School District has begun the planning to make this transition. Our goal is to bring students back as close to full time as possible. However, there are still many other health and safety guidelines in place that must be followed, so our administrative teams will be working to navigate these changes in the coming weeks.

Please watch for updates for any changes in schedule this transition will cause.

At this time, students will return from Spring Break to their current schedules. Students in Hybrid Learning will still follow their Group A and Group B schedule, and online learning students will remain the same as well.

Any changes will be communicated through our normal school and district channels of phone call, email, website, and social media.
