Important Information

A Message from Nutrition Services- A meal includes the entree of choice, milk, juice, choice of fruits and vegetables. A student can choose one of each of these items but needs to cover at least 3 of the food groups (with one being a fruit or vegetable) for it to count as a meal. There are many more choices of A la Cart items at Middle School that are not included. For more information about Nutrition Services please visit

With Hope Suicide Prevention Program- Each year 7th and 8th-grade students attend the With Hope Suicide Prevention presentation. A preview date of material for the presentation is done each year. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Student drop off reminders- YLMS campus does not open until 8:35 am. Prior to 8:35 am there is no supervision for students. We ask that you do not drop off student early to campus.

Respect in the Community- Please take time to speak with your student if they visit local business before or after school about being respectful and courteous.
