"Meet and Beep" - Supply pick-up
Wednesday, November 4th is our next "Meet and Beep" for our families to drive-thru and pick-up new materials and needed supplies. “Students of the Month” will receive their medal and certificate and will be able to take a socially distanced picture in front of the main building. Also, if for any reason you still have any school paperwork, please return it at this time! Many thanks to South Sound Reading for providing a book for every student! Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Please stay in your vehicle at all times.
Please see the flyer below for grade level times and more information...

We are making changes to the Grab n' Go Meal Service in the coming weeks. We know it is difficult to travel daily to pick up lunch and return home to participate in LIVE Zoom sessions. Starting October 19, we will provide meal bags for each student, which will contain 5 days of both breakfast and lunch. Meals will be available at the current locations from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Monday's only. We will also continue to offer a late afternoon pickup at Yelm High School and Yelm Middle School from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday's.
The week of October 12-16, we will offer daily frozen meal pick-up as we transition to the weekly meal pick-up.
