An outbreak of mumps has been reported in Washington state (not in our district). Most of the cases are in King County, mainly in the Auburn area, but there are also cases in Pierce, Spokane, and Yakima counties. Since the outbreak can easily spread to other schools it's important to get informed about the symptoms and how to prevent mumps!
Next year students starting in 7th grade will begin using a new math curriculum. A letter will be provided during conferences. If you don't receive this information, the letter is available here. Click the headline to download the letter.
With winter weather on the way we wanted to make sure everyone is aware of Emergency Closure Procedures. If weather is unusually bad, listen to the radio or television for school schedule announcements. You can also check the district website at www.ycs.edu.
