Bulldog Blast - February 12, 2021


    YES Bulldog Blast - February 12, 2021


    Your familiy has  completed Week 24 in Remote Learning!


    Hello Bulldog Families!

    We have been working hard the past few weeks to prepare for the return of on-campus students to York! We will continue to follow all of the protocols for health and safety as we continue our Community of Care at YES.

    Please be sure to read this week's Bulldog Blast as there are important updates included (especially if this is your child's first time coming to campus this year). There is also an exciting Cultural Arts Performance Link "The Beast presents Sankofa" that will be active until Sunday 2/14, so be sure to check it out. Might be a fun familiy event to experience on a rainy weekend!

    If your child is changing where they attend school - coming in or out of the Virtual Academy - there may be some teacher changes. Your child's current teacher will send you those details next week before Wednesday. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher or to any of us in the Main Office. We are happy to help! 

    Lastly, Happy Chinese New Year (today) and Happy Valenatine's Day (14th)! Have a great LONG weekend. It's a great time to turn those screens off, recharge the devices (and your family/yourself), and do something that makes you happy!
