Yum respects the standard environment variables for proxy settings, so 
from the command line you can:

http_proxy=http://my_proxy:3128 ftp_proxy=http://my_proxy:3128 yum -y update
where my_proxy is the name or address of your squid server.
Or you can edit the yum configuration to add a proxy setting.
