All YUHSD schools transition to distance learning Monday

The Yuma Union High School District Governing Board during a special emergency meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 18 voted to approve Superintendent Gina Thompson’s recommendation that all YUHSD campuses return to full distance learning, beginning Monday, Nov. 23.

The decision was made in the interest of student and staff health and safety due to the increasingly high number of COVID-19 metrics across Yuma County. The board along with YUHSD leadership will evaluate COVID-19 metrics in December and January to determine if and when it is appropriate to move into a different offering for instruction.

Students will be on camera for distance learning Monday through Friday, beginning at their regular school start time. The most up-to-date distance learning schedule is posted here as well as below. Families who have questions are encouraged to reach out to their respective school’s office.

YUHSD student nutrition services will continue to provide drive-thru, grab-and-go breakfast and lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day. The meals are at no cost for children 18 years of age or younger.

Extracurricular activities at all YUHSD campuses will be paused, including any in-person winter sports practices. Coaches and club leaders will be permitted to continue to work with students in a virtual capacity.

Updates will continue to be provided via the Blackboard Connect Messaging system, which provides text, email, and phone calls directly to families. For those who need to update contact information, please log in to your ParentVUE account or contact your school office for assistance.
