This is Principal Rose with your weekly Tuesday update.
Holmes Elementary and Ford ELC are moving back to the Traditional Calendar for the 2019/20 school year. We will join the rest of YCS on the same calendar. Considerations for this change includes:
- All Schools on One Calendar
- Improved Student Attendance
- Post Labor Day Start
- Equitable Allocations of District Resources
A record number of measles cases are confirmed in neighboring counties and one confirmed case in Washtenaw County. If you do not have a record of two measles (MMR) vaccines, or if you are unsure if you have been vaccinated or have had measles in the past, contact your healthcare provider about getting vaccinated. You can also call the Health Department at 734-544-6700. Here is the current link confirming one case in Washtenaw County:
