The Yorktown Schools will be on an early dismissal schedule for Monday January 26. A call will be sent out at 5:00 am Monday to either detail the dismissal schedule or notify parents of a closure of all schools.
We will be evaluating the timing of the storm with the latest forecasts in the morning. Our bus system requires 3 1/2 hours to complete. If we cannot be assured that every student will be home before the beginning of the snow event, we will close schools.
Due to impending inclement weather, the YCSD Board of Education meeting scheduled for Monday, January 26 has been rescheduled to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, January 29, at the Mildred E. Strang Middle School cafeteria. For the agenda, please click here.
