• Welcome to the 2021-22 school year at Yelm Community Schools!

    The students rights and responsibilities handbook is a critical guide to mutual understanding of rights and expectations for success.  The information contained within this handbook establish a common language for school safety and positive classroom environments.  The Yelm Community Schools are steadfast in their denouncement of racism and discrimination in any form.  Please partner with us to create a positive, professional school culture free of harassment or discrimination.

    We firmly believe that all children can learn and thrive in our schools.  The Yelm community strongly supports the schools, and by working together we can achieve our goal that each student is on a path to graduation (starting in kindergarten), continuing education and work.  Students perform best when they feel safe, supported and able to engage in all aspects of their education.

    Our district handbook is distributed to all students.  We ask that parents and students take time together to review the contents.  Each school also distributes its own information and procedures that are unique to their campus.

    Yelm Community Schools policies are available on our website, at the district office, and at your school site.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 360.458.6139.
