Principal's Message

Dear YVHS Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you are all doing well. We have concluded our first week of school and many events have occurred in our nation that keep impacting us and will do so for generations to come. As educators, we are mindful of how these current events have an affect on our students and the community. This is why YVHS teachers have offered an open and safe space for our kids to feel welcomed and heard.

As the weekend is approaching, I encourage you to read our MDSUD Friday Letter as well as other resources available to you on our newsletter or through our YVHS Virtual Wellness Center.

Stay safe and be well!

Mr. Efa Huckaby
