 Announcements: 

No Visitors Policy

To protect the health and safety of our students and staff, we will not allow any visitors on campus unless you have a scheduled meeting or appointment. This means parents will not be allowed to eat lunch or attend birthday celebrations with their student. We will update you if and when there are changes to this policy.

 

Mask Requirement Policy

Given the continuous monitoring of COVID-19, and to prioritize the health and safety of all staff and students, it is now our expectation that all staff members AND all students wear masks. Any parent coming into the office, whether it is to sign in or sign out your student will also require a mask. If your child cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask due to a disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.), please reach out to Andrea Citchen, Principal via email at andrea.citchen@yesprep.org.

 

Early Pick-up Policy

Daily instruction ends at 3:10PM daily. To avoid end of day interruptions, students will not be released after 2:30PM. Visitors will not be allowed in the building after 2:30PM unless a previous appointment has been made. Valid state I.D. is required to pick-up students from the main office. Individuals picking up students must also be listed as an authorized pick-up person.

 

Late Pick-up Policy

If you are unable to pick up your student by 3:45PM, you will have to park and pick up your student from the front office. ID will be required for any adult entering the building to pick up a student, car tag is not accepted as a form of identification. If you are unable to pick up your student on time please enroll your student in the afterschool program.
