School Announcements


    Dearest Parents,
    I hope everyone is staying well at home. I am truly missing my scholars. Schools and offices will remain closed through May 1st. Monday, April 6, 2020 begins our official Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) days. 
    There are three ways to access your child's work: 
    1. You may access your grade level's work packet from our school website under the NTI tab, or
    2. Click on this link https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vQ0IeuXCyl9dILHLAtfNmjO4wUUmUrSFjARLEDqOY4da1B8Dz1QOMrY7TN6ZuMmnRe_rVHY0TUmJ3IU/pub , or 
    3. Stop by Yates on Monday, April 6th from 9-10 am; please notify your child's teacher as this is your preferred choice. Please come to the front entrance and exercise social distancing; no one will be allowed in the building for safety reasons. 
    If you are in need of a Chromebook please contact your child's teacher so that they can make arrangements for you to get one on Monday, April 6th from 9-10am.
    Stay safe and well,

  • Meal service for Thursday and Friday! 
    If you are in need of meals today and tomorrow you must choose the school location closest to you or the one that you know how to get to easiest. Yates is not a distribution location. The change is due to COVID-19 restrictions. 
    On Thursday, March 26, and Friday, March 27, meals will be available only at our pick up 
    locations at the following schools: Arlington, Booker T. Washington, Breckinridge, Cardinal 
    Valley, Glendover, James Lane Allen, Julius Marks, Lansdowne, Mary Todd, Meadowthorpe, The 
    Academy for Leadership at Millcreek, Northern, Southern, Squires and William Wells Brown 
    elementaries, LTMS and Winburn middle schools, Bryan Station High School and the Tates 
    Creek Campus (under the awning between the middle and high school).
    This is a walk-up service. We ask that those receiving meals practice social distancing and stand 
    six feet apart while waiting in line.
