Dear friends and families of Yujin Gakuen,
We had quite an eventful day. We had around 40 ninth grade students who walked over from North Eugene High School to run field day. Our students had a lot of fun getting to play various games, and I think the ninth graders had fun too! They were certainly tired at the end of the day. I think the first graders and kinders wore them out.
Today was the last day students got to see the interns, so we ended the week on a sad note. Speaking of the end of the week. Remember! There’s NO SCHOOL tomorrow! We have grading day.
We hope you have a nice three-day weekend, the last weekend before school is out for the year.
Thank you for supporting Yujin Gakuen. 🌸

Keep Schools Safe, Stay Home When Sick
Check for wellness each day before coming to school
To help everyone at school stay healthy, students and staff need to be healthy when they come to school. If your student is feeling unwell, or if they or anyone in their home has symptoms of COVID-19 or other communicable diseases, they need to stay at home.
Symptoms that should keep a student home include:
If your student has any of these symptoms, please keep them at home and call your school’s attendance line.
If your student has been diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19, or is waiting for test results to check on COVID symptoms, please keep them home and notify our office.
If your student has a chronic health condition that could look like COVID symptoms—including conditions that cause a cough or shortness of breath, such as asthma or allergies—please talk to our nurse and document it in their health history, or they may be sent home from school if they are showing these symptoms.
Thank you for helping students and staff stay healthy in our school buildings. More Information: Health & Safety Protocols
