OUR VISION:

Holmes School, where Young Confident Scholars learn and excel.                                      

The Rob Murphy Foundation and the EMU Men's Basketball Team Visit Holmes

Head Coach for the Eastern Michigan University Men's Basketball team, Rob Murphy, came to Holmes Elementary with holiday cheer through the Rob Murphy Foundation.  EMU basketball players, along with coaches and team staff, brought all students at Holmes a special holiday present, read books, and talked about basketball!  The students had a wonderful time with the players and coaches!

The foundation also brought lots of food for the Holmes Pantry, which will go to good use during the holiday season!  

A big thank you to the Rob Murphy Foundation and the Men's Basketball team for bringing smiles to our kiddos at Holmes Elementary!

Parent Weekly Update (3/31/2020)

Greetings Holmes Families.  This is Mr. Anglin with your weekly update for Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

I hope everyone is doing well and is staying safe.

YCS is closed at least until April 13th.  Please check the YCS website at www.ycschools.us for the most up to date information on our school closure.

Family Technology Survey

If you haven’t had an opportunity, we still need your help with completing the Family Technology Survey.  COMPLETE SURVEY HERE

The information collected from the Family Technology Survey will be helpful in the process of developing a plan for instruction for your child in the event we do not return to school on April 13th.  This plan will more than likely have a distance learning component, which is why your information is important in helping the District to determine the best way to support our students and families during this very unusual time.  The survey is also available on the District website at www.ycschools.us.

Food Distribution

During the school closure, YCS is still providing breakfast and lunch for students to get pre-packaged meals.   

Food Distribution will continue during “spring break” 3/30 - 4/3, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m - 1 p.m. at 5 locations, and 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. at 2 locations.

Due to new restrictions from the Michigan Department of Education, we will now give out two meals on Tuesdays and five meals on Thursdays.

Food Gatherers will take over our evening distributions at the two evening sites. Food items will be non-perishable only.

Food distribution sites are as follows:

11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

  • A.C.C.E. (1076 Ecorse Road, Ypsi)
  • Community Family Life Center (1375 S. Harris Rd., Ypsi) - NOW CLOSED
