SUMMER COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS: Any YLHS student including incoming 9th graders may earn community service hours during the summer.  A Parent Permission slip does not need to be turned into the office before earning service hours. Incoming 9th graders' parent or guardian will give their permission on the Aeries Parent Portal before attending Back To School Days. Hours earned over the SUMMER  must be turned in during Back to School Days, or turned in by September 27th of the current school year.  
SENIORS must complete their Community Service hours and return their verification sheet to the Student Services Office before May 1st of their senior year.  If a senior does not provide verification by May 1st they will not graduate or be able to walk during the graduation ceremony.
