YUHSD schools to host ‘open house’ events

All Yuma Union High School District schools will host open house events in the coming weeks. 

“Open house is an important event because it allows teachers and school staff an opportunity to meet our families and start to create the strong and open lines of communication that our students need to be successful,” Kofa High School Assistant Principal Dave King said. “This is also a great event because it helps us to strengthen relationships between parents, teachers, and students to support student success.”

The first open houses will take place on August 2 with other similar events taking place through September. Families will have an opportunity to meet their child’s teachers, receive ParentVUE information, learn about campus activities, including clubs and athletics, and tour their school.

Parents and guardians should refrain from using the open-house time for in-depth, parent-teacher conferences. Instead, use the open house time to schedule a conference in the future, if needed. 

Here is a list of all six events for YUHSD schools: 
Cibola High School: Monday, Aug. 22 (5-6:30 p.m.)
Gila Ridge High School: Tuesday, Aug. 2 (5-6:30 p.m.)
Kofa High School: Tuesday, Aug. 2 (5-8 p.m.)
San Luis High School: Monday, Aug. 15 (5-6:30 p.m.)
Vista High School: Tuesday, Sept. 20 (5:30-6:30 p.m.) 
Yuma High School: Tuesday, Aug. 2 (5:30-7 p.m.)

Open house at each school will cater to their families in unique ways. At Kofa, families will have informational sessions for the first hour and then walk their child’s class schedule to meet teachers and see their classrooms. 

Vista High School is inviting families to attend student success workshops throughout the year with the first falling in September and covering “How to Support My Child/Student with Their Mental Health.”

According to VHS Principal Brett Surguine, “Workshops will focus on ways to support, understand and connect with teenagers to help them be their best at home and at school.”
