For Parents/Guardians

  • Family Involvement

    Fayette County Public Schools recognizes that family involvement is essential as we partner to educate our district’s students and to prepare them for life-long learning. Schools, families, and community must all be actively engaged in developing strong programs and policies that support the academic success of every student. For districtwide opportunities, visit the FACE page.


    All those interested in volunteering at Yates must register through Fayette County Public Schools here.



    All guests must sign in at the front office and wear a visitors tag.


    Please do not double park in the lot. You may use the bus lane in front of the school to drop your child off in the morning, but do not park there to come into the building. You may not use the bus lane in the afternoon. Please use the side streets or the parking lot.


    Regular attendance at school is essential for students' success in the classroom.  A written excuse -- dated and signed -- is required for all absences. Excused absences include illness, death of an immediate family member, religious holidays for which prior approval is given, medical and dental appointments, and special cases approved by the principal.


    If you are picking up your child at dismissal time, please wait outside the building. Yates must have a written note if there is a change in your child’s transportation; a telephone call will not be accepted. During the school day, you must come into the office to sign out your child. Students are released from class only when called from the office.
