A big shout out to the great volunteers with Pet OverPopulation Prevention for coming out to the Richland Y today. We've had a few feral cats adopt us and we discovered that there was a litter of kittens living in our shrubs. They came out and helped to get the kittens out and off to safety. A very special thank you to all the Y staff that helped out too. ... See MoreSee Less

We are looking to change our Snow Policy for our Before and After School Program. Previously we have opened at 7:00am, for both school closures and 2-hr delays. Last year, this resulted in 6 days where parents had to return to the site after it was open to pick up their children and transport them to their "snow site". To try and avoid this inconvenience for families, we are looking to move our opening time to 8:00am, giving the district more time to allow for possible changes to closures.

We would like your feedback on how opening our Before and After School sites at 8:00am on snow closures or 2-hr delays would affect your family.

I start work at 745 and hubby at 630 so that means wouldn't working for our family at all. My middle schooler would have to stay home with my YMCA kid to watch him if that happened. It wasn't that much of an inconvenience for me last year bc my work is closeby. In a year I will have two elementary kids and it really won't work for us

I agree with Stephanie Rubio. Dropping off my daughter then having to leave work 20 mins later to go back and pick her up was frustrating. Either earlier decision from the school district or the 8:00 drop off for YMCA. I'd rather go in a little late the make multiple trips.

What is your competitors policy about this with that other programs like Boys and Girls Club?

I think the problem was the Kennewick school district alerting parents to school closures after the cut off time. So I would take them to ymca thinking it was a 2 hour delay and then find out 20 min later KSD cancelled school.

It would affect us as I work at 7.

Sharing this with all of our Y parents.

Screenshot Series: Going Viral-A Parents GuideJuly 19, 2017, 6:30pmWSU Tri-CitiesAttention Parents! Would you like to know more about what your kids are capable of doing on their phones? Richland PD has teamed up with the Regional ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) Taskforce to offer a free class to parents. This event, being hosted by WSU Tri-Cities, is a chance for parents to learn what apps are available to their child’s phone and what they are commonly used for. This is also a chance to speak one-on-one with staff of the ICAC Taskforce, and discuss some of the legal issues that can come up with sharing of images through peers. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending! This class is the first of its kind in this area and is focused on working with parents to keep kids safe online. The event will be held in the East Auditorium at WSU Tri-Cities.

Hope parents attend! Seems like 'parenting' is a lost art.....

Jessie Frye

Is this for youth as well or perhaps a youth counterpart to this could be arranged...

Hey Jen, we encourage the youth to attend with the caveat that some of the information discussed can be sensitive.
