Important Information

No School Monday- This Monday, January 20th is the observance of Martin Luther King's birthday and there is no school.

Stakeholder Survey for PYLUSD- Starting at the end of January PYLUSD will be collecting feedback from Parents, Students, and Teachers as part of their annual stakeholder survey. The information has already been sent out via the district to our 8th-grade parents and more information for the parent survey will be emailed in the coming weeks. Only our 8th-grade students are surveyed, but we encourage as many parents as possible to provide feedback. The feedback from this annual survey helps us as a school site to better serve our community.

PTSA Bingo Night Fundraiser- On February 1st is the PTSA Bingo Night. This is a fundraiser hosted by the YLMS PTSA. This adult-only function has a limited number of tickets still available. See the flyer below for more information.

Parking Lot Entrance- Parents please note that the YLMS parking lot is one direction! Please only enter from the North entrance and exit from the South entrance. We have had some issues in the weeks since we have returned and would like to make the lot as safe as possible for everyone.

After School Pick Up- When picking up your student please keep your car running once school is out of session and be ready to move your car forward to allow for other cars to pick up their students while you wait. Once the school busses are gone cars may pick up students in the bus area. This helps speed the flow of traffic and allows for a safe pick up of students.

Speak Up Survey- The Speak Up Survey is administered by the non-profit group Project Tomorrow. The purpose is to obtain input from all education stakeholders, administrators, teachers, students, support personnel, and parents, about the different ways technology can impact student learning. The data is then taken to Washington DC and state capitals and shown to the politicians who control the purse strings for education. The goal is that if the politicians see the huge amount of data showing positive ways technology can benefit student learning then they will change their budgets accordingly. Your input is a valuable piece of this data and we appreciate your time in taking this survey. How to access the survey:
