Hello YCIS Families--


School is back in session. As we wrap up the first week of Comprehensive Distance Learning I hope you and your families are healthy and safe and are getting settled back into schedules and routines. The smoke and wind we were dealing with at the beginning of the week is just one more hurdle to overcome but if 2020 has taught us anything it is that we are a resilient group and we will overcome. With that I would like to offer pause and reflection for our first responders who are braving the front lines in an effort to keep our citizens and our state safe. This is an important consideration every day but has significant meaning on 9/11. We remember and Thank You!


We were made aware of some technological issues on Tuesday and it appears that we have resolved those issues. Links to grade level zoom meetings are located on the teacher's Google Classroom pages. If you are having a hard time accessing these links or they are not working please let us know. Remember our lessons are being recorded and will be available on Teacher's Google Classroom pages so that families can access those same lessons when it works best for them. I have been popping into some classrooms and checking in with teachers and making an occasional appearance on zoom meetings. It is quite satisfying seeing students engaged in learning activities once again. Our attendance and participation is up and we will strive to maintain this high level of engagement.


Attached below are "How To" instructions that explain step by step on how to log into your students Google Classroom account as well as Zoom meetings. Please reach out to our teachers or our front office if you are having difficulties in this area. The link below is for our first virtual assembly which is happening on Wednesday, September 16th at 2:00. Families are invited to join us. Another link will be sent out to students via their Google Classroom.

Please note that the YCSD is offering lunch service to all of our students ages 1-18. Families may pick up lunches at YCIS Monday through Friday from 12:00-1:00.


REMINDER: We are on our special Monday schedule starting on 9/14. These schedules were sent out to families last week.


I really would like to commend our students, parents and teachers for making this week a success. I appreciate the patience and flexibility that was shown as we work through some of these challenges in an effort to better serve our students.



Sincerely,



Matt Wiles
