And then finally on Thursday is high school parent day from 1:00 - 6:00 p.m.. Parents of our Mountain Heritage students are encouraged to come out to the high school for teacher conferences at that time.

Looking into May, YCS does have a holiday on Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day. There is no school for students OR staff on Memorial Day, however, parents need to be aware of the following:

Elementary and middle schools will be giving End Of Grade tests on Thursday and Friday prior to the Memorial Day Weekend. Students absences on Thursday and Friday will have great impact on the testing process. Parents are encouraged to mark their calendars and make plans to begin their holiday weekend after school on Friday!
