Students should not arrive before 7:30 AM or remain after 3:00 PM, unless for sports or clubs. We do not provide supervision for your child beyond the designated instructional times, unless your child is involved in sports or clubs. Your child's safety is a priority and we appreciate your cooperation.

Student instructional time is 7:40 AM - 3:00 PM. Students should be on campus by 7:40 AM.

We are a four day week school: Tuesday through Friday. Campus is closed on Mondays.

District playgrounds are closed until further notice.

The YESD School Governing Board revised the YESD Safe Return to In-Person Instruction Plan: ESSER III on November 10, 2021. Please see the changes below under the mask section. On January 13, 2022, the board voted to keep Version 3 in place.

This plan will be reviewed each month at its board meeting. Version 3 of the plan is attached under information and notices on the link to the left. YESD strongly suggests that families and staff follow CDC guidelines.

As the COVID-19 metrics change in our community, the determination to have in-person instruction or distance learning may shift. Communication, via your email and our website, will be provided as needed in the event of the metrics or situation changing as we move forward. Please see the CDC guidelines for more information and guidance.

Masks: Requirements for masks are due to a rise in COVID19 cases in our area

o CDC: “Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, CDC recommends universal indoor masking by all students (age 2 and older), staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.”

o Masks must be worn indoors by all students, staff, parents, and visitors while inside the building or riding on the bus. Students will be permitted to remove their masks while seated at their desks or during physical activities if maintaining a distance of six feet or more. Desks have partitions between them.

o Only teachers may use face shields while teaching if maintaining a distance of six feet or more.
