WELCOME TO THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR

We hope all HAWKS had a great first week! We understand that this first week a lot of our students were still getting the hang of things and some were not added to proper Teams pages to attend their class. Please have patience throughout this new process, we are working on getting everyone situated where they need to be.

We have new and returning families, so we want to take a moment to re-introduce ourselves. We are YES Prep Northwest, serving grades 6, 7, and 8 grade. Each year we will add a grade level until we reach 12th grade. Our staff is committed to providing the best possible experience and education for all students. 

Please take a moment to read this comprehensive Welcome to YES Prep Northwest (spanish) packet. We gathered all of the information we have shared up to this point. We understand it can get overwhelming, such as not knowing where to find information.

What the packet covers:
