Updated Dress Code Policy 2013-2014 School Year

The staff and students at Yates are proud to work and learn in a Bully Free environment. Kentucky Center for School Safety has presented their annual "Take the Pledge Against Bullying." As we establish an intentional culture that places value and respect on each individual by focusing on the power of relationships, there is no room for bullying in our district, in our school, or in our community.  Our goal is to have every staff member, every student, and family members take a pledge to stop bullying!
