Dear YES Parents,
Since Sept. 11, Youth Elementary School has had no new positive cases of COVID-19. WCSD reported a total of 12 cases districtwide with 77 individuals quarantined during the week of Sept. 11-17. For more information on the Georgia Department of Public Health's quarantine protocol, visit https://wcsd.info/QuarantineFAQ.
In light of the recent federal changes to meal service, please note that students attending school in person are already receiving free meals and should not be included in the district's weekly signup form. The signup form is for pick-up service only which is reserved for WCSD digital/distance learners and children 18 and under (21 and under for special needs) who are not currently enrolled in our schools.
Thank you for your ongoing support of YES and the Walton County School District.
Fall Picture Retakes will be on September 29th

Thanks so much for your support!
All students and employees who are sick will be required to stay home. Those who become sick or exhibit symptoms at school or work will be sent home immediately. Individuals must be fever-free (temperature under 100.4) for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine before returning.
If a child is running a fever or exhibiting other COVID-19 symptoms, a parent will be contacted to pick up the child. Students with COVID-19 symptoms will be isolated with supervision and be offered a mask while waiting for their parents. WCSD will follow guidelines from the Georgia Department of Public Health when determining the steps to take if a positive case is determined. The current guidelines are subject to change.
Students attending school in person who become sick or are quarantined will be able to receive and complete any missed assignments without penalty. Once a student has met the Georgia Department of Public Health's guidelines for returning to work/school, the student would be able to return to school.
