OPEN DOOR STUDENTS - FALL 2020
We are excited to welcome each of you back this fall for the 2020-2021 school year. August 26, Wednesday, is our first day back.
Orientation is required for every returning student and we are offering you several session choices. You have three days and six time options to choose from. You will choose one option. Orientations will be virtual and you must have a YSD computer and reliable internet in place when we start. Wednesday and Friday we will hold orientations at 8:00am and noon. Thursday we will keep our tradition of a late offering and you may log in to either a noon session or a 5:30pm.session. (Don’t aim for the last session because if you miss it, you miss starting back to school in August.)
Our virtual orientation will be three hours long, live, with the Open Doors staff. You will have an additional two hours on your own, virtual as well. You need to attend all of the orientation to be enrolled going forward. We look forward to getting back in the routine of school, with prior attendance and academic requirements in place.
You do not need to register as we are keeping you enrolled. You do need to be in touch with changes of address and contact information. Please let us know. With COVID-19 challenges,we ask that you keep informed about Yakima School District plans, through the website, as summer progresses. (yakimaschools.org) There you will find information and answers to your questions, particularly on getting a computer and internet support.
We will be ready for you in August !

Thank you for providing a cermony for the graduates. Two of my three children needed a program like this and I'm very grateful that this was an option for them. Brandon has moved to Tri Cities to work part time and attend college. I have no doubt he will be successfull at computer engineering. Thank you again for all that you do - it makes a big difference to many.
