Community Service

Beginning August 2016 seniors must have 30 hours of community service completed to obtain a Lunch Pass.
40 Hours of Community Service are required for graduation. Attached are Community Service forms - the Community Service Verification and the Parent Permission form for incoming freshmen and new sophomores to our district. 
SUMMER COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS: Any YLHS student including in-coming 9th graders may earn community service hours during the summer.  The Parent Permission slip does not need to be turned into the office prior to earning service hours. In-coming 9th graders will obtain their permission slip on-line in the Back To School Days process.  This permission slip is required to participate in the Back To School Days in August.  If your student does not attend the Back To School Days in August he/she must return the permission slip to the Attendance office during the first two weeks of school in order to qualify for hours. If your student is in the 10th or 11th grade we should have a permission slip on file in the Attendance office.  For all new 10th or 11th graders you will need to down load the permission slip below and bring it to the Attendance office within the first two weeks of school. 
Summer Community Service hours earned must be turned in to the Attendance Office by September 30th of the year the hours were performed.
SENIORS must complete their Community Service hours and return their verification sheet to the Attendance Office prior to 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.
