YCSD Guidance for K-12 Sports

OHA/OSAA Guidance Released 11/18/2020

Yesterday Governor Brown issued an Executive Order directing a two-week freeze across Oregon in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. The order is in effect from November 18-December 2 in Yamhill County.  The order places a number of restrictions on activities and venues across the state.  The order also directs schools to continue to operate under the current Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance issued by the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Health Authority.  The order delegated responsibility to the Oregon Health Authority to develop and issue guidance for particular public sectors which includes the Limited Return to K-12 Sports Guidance.

 This morning, after extensive consult with the Oregon Schools Activities Association, the OHA issued the Statewide Freeze Guidance for Outdoor School Sports, Limited Return to Play. The guidance directs that all indoor school sports are prohibited.

YCSD will continue outdoor activities as allowed by the updated guidance and directed by the high school administration. The District has and will continue to work with our local public health officials regarding the health and safety of our students, staff, and community in regards to all school activities. 

 Significant changes in the new guidance is the directive that masks will be worn when actively participating in an outdoor sport along with maintaining physical distancing. The guidance also requires that students and/or coaches self-quarantine for 14 days upon return to Oregon if they have traveled out of state.

 Senior Families,

Season’s greetings!  It is hard to believe it’s almost December.

Let me start by thanking you for your willingness to work with us as we moved to virtual education this fall. Your support and patience are greatly appreciated. 

First and foremost, I want you to know, we will have a graduation ceremony for our class of 2021. What it will look like I cannot say at this point but just like last year, we will find a way to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2021. To be ready for that graduation celebration I want to make sure that each and every senior has ordered their Cap & Gown and any other graduation materials they desire.

I have reached out to our graduation supplier Jostens and requested of them one final extension of the “group order” deadline. To be clear, you may place your order later in the year, but the advantages of doing so with-the-group are:

  1. You received the lowest prices of the year.
  2. You will receive the earliest possible delivery of your order.
  3. And most importantly, you will help reduce the possibility of delays due to the pandemic.

Jostens is extending the deadline for group orders to Friday, December 11th
There are 2 ways to place your order:

If you wish to place your order without a payment, use this option.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I look forward to the day that we can welcome you back to our school!

The registration for these webinars is open to all Oregon high school students interested in engineering.


I have been reaching out to our local scholarship sponsors and committees to suggest they extend their application deadlines until the end of May.

As well, I've asked them to allow applications to be mailed directly to a contact person instead of being delivered to Counseling or ASPIRE (in case we're not back to school by then).

The majority have agreed.

These scholarship applications are all housed in Google Classroom under Scholarship Applications for 2020. The code to access this "class" is dememxa.

The application names preceded by a red dot 🔴 are those that have an extended deadline.
