SEVERE WEATHER CLOSING POLICY

Good Evening YCS Families:

As we head into the Michigan winter months, we would like to remind you of the YCS procedures to close school.  

SEVERE WEATHER CLOSING POLICY

YCS uses the telephone messaging system to call all parents and guardians starting at 6:00 a.m. when schools are closed due to severe weather, road conditions or building mechanical problems. It is important for every student to have a working telephone number on file in the school office. If you do not, please call your building secretary to add a working number.

In addition, YCS also notifies local radio, television stations and social media outlets concerning school closings prior to 6:00 a.m., unless there are extenuating circumstances.

It is also posted on our website: www.ycschools.us

Television stations notifications are:

  • Channel 2 WJBK Fox - Detroit
  • Channel 4 WDIV NBC - Detroit
  • Channel 7 WXYZ ABC - Detroit
  • Channel 62 WWJ-TV CBS - Detroit

Please utilize the media outlet that best suits your family's needs.  We will also update official "Ypsilanti Community Schools" social media outlets with weather updates.

Transportation during the winter months may run slower than usual due to road conditions. Please ensure students are dressed warmly for cold weather temperatures while waiting for transportation. If buses are running late, we will update parents as information is provided via the YCS robocall system. 

Thank you and have a great evening.

EMU Multicultural Day and YCS Students

EMU Multicultural Day was a great event. Our students were engaged, exchanged information, and used their elevator speeches to network at @EasternMichU Multicultural Day. The idea to have reps engage with small groups of students was perfectly planned! Ending with dancing with the DDT Dance Troupe was the perfect ending! Go Eagles! Go Grizzlies!

Washtenaw International Middle Academy
Application Process for the 2020 - 2021 School Year
  

  
Washtenaw International High School
Application Process for the 2020 - 2021 School Year

Dear YIES 5th-grade families, 

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) partner school with Washtenaw International Middle Academy (WIMA), we want to share important dates and details about the 6th-grade WIMA Application Process for the 2020-2021 school year.  We hope you can join us at the WIMA Admissions Info Night on January 8th @ 6pm where you can learn about WIMA's caring, diverse, and academically-focused learning community!  The application opens tomorrow, Friday, November 8th and closes February 7th. For more information about WIMA & WIHI, please visit our website (wihi.org) and view this informational video.

YIES students who apply prior to the deadline have priority into WIMA after siblings (State Policy) are admitted.  Since we have limited seats (64 total), we will likely have a lottery for the seats available for WIMA 6th grade students.  Please review the dates and application details attached and contact admissions coordinator, Kelly Cartwright (KCartwright@wihi.org) with any questions.  

We look forward to welcoming you to our school community!

Sincerely,
Ms. Do 

Nhu Do, Principal
Program Director, Washtenaw Educational Options Consortium
