Recognize that you are the FIRST teacher of your child and have primary responsibility for your child’s education. Understand that the school attendance is mandatory. If student is absent, you must send a note. Parent’s Contract to YCCS
Parent’s Contract to YCCS (continued…) Arrival time is from 7:30 a.m.-8:10 a.m. After 8:15, your child is considered “tardy”. Students will NOT be dismissed during lunch, P.E., or 30 minutes prior to dismissal. You will encourage your child to maintain a 2.0 or above average GPA. You will participate in the “parent volunteer program” of 20 hours per child and 10 additional hours per sibling. Students are not allowed to bring toys or games. If so, items will be confiscated until the END of the year. Uniforms must be worn every day.
We are no longer be taking the FCAT, it has been replaced with the new test which will be administered at the beginning of next year. Students will be asked to not simply answer questions, but be able to critically think about their responses. Florida Standards Assessments

3 rd Grade is one of the most vital grades in your child’s education. Please have your child come to school every day so he/she will not fall behind on content. Unexcused absences will result in a “zero” for that day’s missed assignment(s). Please be mindful of picking up your child early. There are two teachers involved in their day so they miss out on lessons. Attendance
The End! Thank you for coming! Together we will make this year a successful and fun-filled adventure!
