YPS Family, We are going to try something a little different tomorrow in regards to making meals available to our families. Meals will still be available for pickup at the high school parking lot area from 11:00-12:30. On a trial basis we will add four sites to make meals more accessible. Meals will be delivered to the following sites from 11:45-12:15. 1. Advent Christian Church on 44th and Hwy 18-Mr. Fuss and Mr. Fowler will be in the Ag truck. 2. Old Hwy 51 and Doll Road-Ms. Angela and Ms. Jessica will be in the drivers ed car. 3. Greenwood Cemetery-Mr. Olinghouse and Ms. Coffman will be in the yellow handicap bus. 4. The southwest corner of the new gym parking lot-Mr. Sturgeon will be in his truck. Feel free to bring your child to any of these sites for a free meal. We hope that this process helps to ease some of the difficulties associated with distance learning.
Yale students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to use the attached schedule to make contact with their teachers. We also would like to remind everyone that all staff members are in the building, so if any need arises please call the school and we will be glad to assist you.
YPS Family, Covid has been hitting our student population very hard. Due to this sharp increase we feel that it is best for our district to transition to distance learning. We will use today to prepare our students for the coming days of distance learning. Yale Schools will begin distance learning on Thursday, September 16 and will plan to resume regular classes on Monday, September 27. YPS will still plan to complete parent-teacher conferences virtually on Tues and Thur evenings of next week. We were already scheduled to be out of school on Friday, September 24. Students will be able to check out chromebooks but will need internet connectivity at home for it to be very useful. Parental consent must be given for students to take responsibility for their chromebook. Contract letters can be obtained from either school office. Chromebooks will be available for checkout throughout the distance learning process. Teachers will be using their regular social platform, Google Classroom or Seesaw, to connect with their students daily. Paper packets can be made available upon request. YPS staff will be working from their classrooms during distance learning. Students will also have the opportunity to pick up meals during this time. Meals can be picked up from 11:00-12:30 by driving or walking through the high school parking lot. Extra-curricular activities will still take place as originally scheduled. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we appreciate your cooperation.
Happy Monday - PAWS-itivity Awards 🤩

Covid is an ever changing situation. The illness is so fluid that it is extremely difficult to contact trace and keep everyone informed with accurate information. Yale Schools wants to be as transparent as possible so that parents can make informed decisions about the safety of their children. YPS currently has 11 students in the JH/HS that have tested positive within the last 10 days. YPS will continue to contact parents as best and as quickly as possible. We encourage anyone that has questions or concerns to please call the school. 918-387-2118. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
