Dear Parents and Guardians,
We would first like to welcome Tina Snow to Yarmouth High School as our new main office administrative assistant. Please remember that if your child is absent or will be dismissed from school, our front office staff would appreciate it if you could call first thing in the morning.
Next, we have now reached the midpoint of the first quarter and your student’s progress report will available on PowerSchool this Wednesday. Teachers will post comments about your child’s work this year that can be accessed with the following link. Please take the time to review this information, as it is important to not only start off the school year on a positive note, but also to develop strong work habits for the rest of the year.
