FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I cannot complete my address verification for my 9th grade student?

You will not, under any circumstances, be allowed to complete Walk Through Registration if you cannot verify your address. By district mandate there are no exceptions to this policy. We recommend speaking to your assigned VP PRIOR TO Walk Through if you do not believe you can show proof of residency.


May I obtain my student's schedule before Walk Through Registration?

No. Schedules are printed just prior to Walk Through Day and are not available in advance.


How long will Walk Through Registration take?

The answer to this question depends on how much preparation you are able to accomplish in advance of Walk Through day. If you are able to complete all online paperwork prior to Walk Through, the process may take as little as 30 minutes to one hour. Otherwise please allow for a two hour experience.

My student's schedule is wrong or is missing a class. What should I do?

After Textbook Pickup, there will be directions where you can fill out a change request form. ( Do we create a form?)


When is the first day of school?

Thursday, August 17th.


How can parents sign up for school communications?

Create a Remind acct


What is the benefit of purchasing an ASB sticker for my student?

Receive student discounts throughout the year with your ASB sticker. Discounts to dances and other school events, FREE admittance to YVHS home league games and home league playoff games (not NCS playoffs). Your sticker purchase also helps to provide for the FUN activities, rallies and school decorations the leadership students plan for ALL students throughout the year.


How does my student obtain a parking permit?

Student Parking Permits are purchased through the Treasurer's Office. After purchase, students should bring a completed, signed application to the school treasurer to receive a parking permit but because we will be in distance learning, this is not required at this time.


WHAT TO BRING TO WALK THROUGH


  1. One photo ID of student, in order to release a schedule (a school ID from past years, passport, driver’s license, etc. Showing the student’s Aeries/homelink photo profile on his/her phone is also permissible.) TIP: Take a picture of your photo ID on your phone to bring to Walk Through.

  2. Checks and/or credit cards for payments at Walk Through. (OR save time by paying ahead online.)


WHAT ELSE TO KNOW
