As with every day, we encourage your child to be present tomorrow, Wednesday, February 9th.

Please plan to have your child present on Count Day. Thank you!

 

 

NWEA Assessment

 

The winter NWEA assessment has started at Holmes. The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) is a standardized assessment that helps to identify student academic levels and assess student growth. This year, students will take NWEA in the fall, winter, and spring.

Important Covid-19 Information

 

We have been working hard this school year to implement measures to help stop the spread of Covid-19 in our building. We enforce a mask policy for all students, staff, and visitors. We also socially distance ourselves in our classrooms and in the hallways as much as possible.

 

Another key precaution we can take is recognizing Covid-19 symptoms and making sure that our students are symptom-free before coming to school. Common symptoms of Covid-19 we have seen are headaches, sore throats, stomach aches, and fevers.

 

If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms please consider keeping them home and symptom-free for at least 48 hours before coming to school. If you are able, we would also recommend getting them tested for Covid-19. Please note, for any absence due to illness you can call our office at 734-221-2100 to excuse your child.

 

As we continue to navigate this unprecedented time your support is greatly appreciated in helping to keep our students, staff, and community safe.

 

 

If you or your child are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, please consider keeping your child home until you are sure they are healthy. We would ask that students be symptom free for at least 48-72 hours. This is in an effort to help protect from the spread of Covid-19 and other viruses.

School resumes for students on Monday, January 3rd, 2022.

 

Winter Break

Our Winter Break begins Monday, December 20th with students returning to school on Monday, January 3rd.

 

On behalf of the Holmes Staff, I would like to wish you a safe and enjoyable Winter Break and a Happy New Year!

 

Parent Drop Off and Pick Up REMINDERS

 

As we are approaching the second half of the school year after the Winter Break. The Holmes Staff wanted to reset some of our arrival procedures to help ensure that 2022 gets off to a great start!

 

*Parent Drop-Off and Pick-up is off of Peabody St. Please do not pull into the main loop (off of Holmes Rd.) to drop off (between 8:00 am - 8:45 am) or pick up your student (between 3:10 pm - 3:45 pm) in the main drive.

 

All students who are dropped off and picked up will enter/exit the building

through the East/Peabody St. Doors.

 

The main loop needs to remain clear as this is where our buses drop off students in the morning and load students for dismissal in the afternoon.

Buses arrive any time between 8:15 am and 8:50 am daily.

 

NOTE:

  • If you arrive after 8:45 am, please drop your student off at the main entrance of the building.
  • If you are running late to pick up your student after 3:45 pm, please come to the main entrance of the building.

 

Bus Riders/Walkers:

 

Students that ride the bus or walk to school will enter through the following doors when they arrive at school (see map below):

 

  • 2nd Grade - West Entrance
  • 3rd Grade and Special Education - Main Entrance
  • 4th Grade and 5th Grade - East/Peabody St. Doors

 

Reminder Student Drop-Off in the Morning

This is a friendly reminder for students that are dropped off in the morning that the doors do not open for students until 8:15 am. We would ask that you continue to keep students supervised with you until we open the doors at 8:15 am, especially as the weather is getting colder. This will help students from congregating in front of the drop-off doors. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 734-221-2102 or ganglin3@ycschools.us.

Thank you for your continued support!

 

 

 

Bus Tracking App

 

Information was shared by the district for the Versetrans MyStop App. The Versatrans MyStop app is intended to allow families to track their student’s bus location and scheduled arrival time of the bus.

If you are having trouble logging in to the Versetrans MyStop App, please email techsupport@ycschools.us and include “bus tracker” in the subject line.

 

 

♦Important COVID-19 Information♦

We have been working hard this school year to implement measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our building. We enforce a mask policy for all students, staff, and visitors. We also socially distance ourselves in our classrooms and in the hallways.

 

Another key precaution we can take is recognizing COVID-19 symptoms and making sure that our students are symptom-free before coming to school. Common symptoms of COVID-19 we have seen are headaches, sore throats, stomach aches, and fevers.

Child Care Options for Monday, 11/23 and Tuesday, 11/24

 

Dear YCS Families,

 

As discussed in the Board of Education meeting Monday, November 8, 2021, the district has been working diligently to generate a list of child care options for our families that may not have support on November 22 and 23 due to the school closure.

We have collaborated with the Child Care Network and the Great Start to Quality to provide a variety of options that parents might choose to contact. Each of the listed childcare options is located in close proximity to our community. We have attached the following link to access the Great Start to Quality portal. In navigating this portal successfully, please first access the full search option and then filter for before care or aftercare, or temporary care. Then, you will want to contact the desired child care center to learn about available options.

The Ypsilanti YMCA Child Development Center (CDC) is located at 111 S. Wallace Blvd. Ypsilanti, MI 48197 is another option. The Child Development Center is licensed and operated by the Ann Arbor YMCA. Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti Community Schools, and Ypsilanti Housing Commission have worked in partnership with them to bring this program to fruition. For more information, please contact Program Director Donetta Mazyck at 734.661.8045 or visit Ypsilanti CDC.
