 4 September Happy 109th Birthday. Syd Hoff

Let's Make an Omelet!
We Start Breaking Eggs on Tuesday

After a summer filled with humid daydreams, we leave the shell of nonchalance and turn our hand to the work of physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth.  We are honored and excited to share the challenges and achievements of the 21-22 school year with all of you.  Here we go!

Introducing the Coronavirus Cupboard

COVID is a real thing that requires our attention - but we're not going to let it define us.  So we're moving our COVID information and updates out of the headlines and onto the back pages where they belong.  Each week, you'll be able to click here to view COVID news and updates that impact the YIHS school experience.  Look inside the Coronavirus Cupboard

Poem of the Week

Seal Lullabye
by Rudyard Kipling

Oh! hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us, 
   And black are the waters that sparkled so green. 
The moon, o'er the combers, looks downward to find us 
   At rest in the hollows that rustle between. 
Where billow meets billow, there soft be thy pillow; 
   Ah, weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease! 
The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee, 
   Asleep in the arms of the slow-swinging seas.
