YG Family Newsletter – November 18th, 2021

Dear friends and families of Yujin Gakuen:

It’s been an unusual month with parent conferences and Veteran’s Day last week and the Thanksgiving holidays next week. It feels as though this month is flying by. In case you didn’t hear the news, the school board did not approve the calendar changes that were proposed at the last school board meeting. We will have a regular school day next Wednesday.

I would like to remind everyone that we have Picture Retake day tomorrow. Please let the office know if you would like your student to have a retake.

Thank you for supporting Yujin Gakuen, and have a great weekend.

Yours sincerely,
Kocho Sensei

Please see below for announcements.

Yujin Gakuen Directory

Dear Yujin Gakuen families,
We understand that during this time of our continued COVID precautions, it can be more challenging to meet parents from our school community and help foster connections for our children outside of school. If you would like to be included in our YG directory this year, please use this Google Link to share your contact information and we will organize these into a PDF that will be emailed to our YG families.

Health Screening- December 10th, 2021


Our vision screening this year will be Friday, December 10th during the school day for grades K-3. This vision screening will be done by a “Spot Test” with the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation volunteers and does NOT take the place of a thorough eye examination by an eye health specialist, as serious or eye health problems can be missed.  If the results of the vision screening indicate your student needs a thorough eye exam, you will be notified of results after we receive them, generally 2-4 weeks after the screening date. The volunteers are required to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Our dental screening this year also will be Friday, December 10th during the school day, for grades K-5. This is an oral health screening, a quick look, and DOES NOT take the place of a complete examination by a dentist. Serious oral health problems may be missed in a brief visual screening. The screening is performed by the Community Health Centers of Lane County, Dental Prevention.  Additionally, if an authorization for Dental Hygiene Services was returned, the Dental Prevention Program may offer a fluoride varnish treatment during the screening. There is a possibility that dental insurance would be billed, as mentioned on their consent form.

Tutoring for BIPOC Students

The NAACP is hosting free tutoring sessions for our BIPOC students through the Science Factory. If you are interested in having your student attend, check out the flyer above.

The next tutoring session is on Saturday, November 20th.

Choose Your Learning Location

There are three learning pathways available to 4J students this school year:

Families may request to change between these programs at the change of term.

For elementary students, January 10th is the deadline to submit change requests for Semester 2, which begins January 31st.

If you want to change your student’s learning pathway for the second term of the school year, please complete and submit your request form by the deadline for their grade level. Submit a separate form for each student.

ONLY complete the form if you want to make a change. If you want to continue with your student’s current enrollment, you do not need to respond.
