Yancey Schools to Implement Saturday School Policy
The month of January has brought with it several days of extremely cold weather and unsafe road conditions forcing schools to miss a total of 10 days thus far this month. Because of this, Yancey County Schools has decided to implement its Saturday School plan.
The Policy states that any time school is closed Monday-Thursday due to bad weather, Yancey County Schools will plan on having Saturday School. Whenever school is missed on a Friday due to bad weather, the decision to have school on that following Saturday will be decided as quickly as possible.
The School System will follow traditional early dismissal hours for Saturday School – Elementary at 11:30 a.m., High School at 11:45 a.m. and Middle Schools at 12:00 noon.
This plan will begin February 3rd. As always, parents will be notified by the school system’s phone notification system, as early as possible, when Saturday School will occur.
Yancey Schools appreciates the cooperation and support from parents and staff and want them to understand that the number one priority will always be student safety.
