YCS Return to School Information

On December 28th a message was sent to families outlining the YCS plans for students to return to buildings for instruction.  I have shared the information from that message below.  The original message is linked HERE.

In-Person - Students who began in-person instruction on September 8, 2020, at YCES/Estabrook and YCMS are expected to return to in-person instruction on Monday, January 25, 2021.  Please note that your child will continue to receive remote learning instruction effective Monday, January 4, 2021, through Friday, January 22, 2021.

  • Students in Grades TK-5 who attended in-person instruction at YCES/Estabrook will return for in-person instruction on Monday, January 25, 2021.
  • Students in Grades 6-8 who were attending in-person instruction at YCMS will return to YCMS 2 days per week (Monday and Tuesday) for in-person instruction on Monday, January 25, 2021.

Online - Those students who chose to remain online for the entire 2020-21 school year will continue to receive their daily instruction online for the remainder of the school year. There will be no change to the existing schedule.

Semester 1 Learning

Time flies!...The end of the 1st Semester is already coming to a close on January 15th.  It is important to remember that attendance and student engagement while attending class is very important.  Unlike from March - June last school year, students must be present and must participate in classroom activities and complete assignments to demonstrate learning and understanding.  We appreciate your continued partnership and support.
