The district is continuing to work hard to service all YCS students and families during this emergency closure.
To help YCS workers and volunteers stay safe in the Food Services Department, YCS Food Distribution will now be on Thursdays only. We will have ten (10) site locations for food distribution. The site times will remain the same with distribution from 11:00am.-1:00pm. and specific locations** from 4:00 - 6:00pm.in partnership with Food Gathers.
This change will begin effective this week (4/13)! There will be no food distribution on Tuesday's.
