Message from the Principal

August 10, 2019

Dear Isaac E. Young Middle School Community,

I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Isaac E. Young Middle School. Within a few short weeks, we will open our school doors to begin another year. The middle school years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in a short period of three years. It is my hope that together, we will create a year of excellence for our children as we strive to provide them with a high-quality middle school experience. The Isaac faculty is committed to providing a developmentally appropriate, challenging, and rigorous education in a supportive and nurturing environment.  Below you will find some important notes and reminders about the start of the school year. 

School begins on Wednesday, September 4th with student orientation. 

6th Graders report to IEYMS from 8:30-10:00 Enter through Bridge/Castle Steps.

7th Graders report to IEYMS from 9:30-10:30 Enter through Bridge/Castle Steps.

8th Graders report to IEYMS from 11:00-12:00 Enter through Centre Avenue. 

The first full day of school for all students will be Thursday, September 5th, 2019.  Students will receive paper schedules on September 5th. You may access your child’s schedule through the parent portal in early September. If you have not done so, I encourage you to enroll in the Home Access Program. Registration information is available on-line on this website. Click on quick links and then home access center. Grade specific welcome letters are available for view or print on the IEYMS website via smartphone, laptop and table-top devices. 

It is important that students attend school every day on time. School hours for all sixth-grade students will be 8:20-3:00. First period will begin at 8:20 sharp. Students will enter the building at 8:15. After school help will be available for sixth-grade students from 3:00-3:30. School hours for all seventh and eighth grade students will be 8:30-3:16. Students will enter the building at 8:25 and period one will begin at 8:30 sharp. After school help will be available for seventh and eighth grade students from 3:18-3:48. The breakfast program will be available starting at 7:45 a.m. on September 5th

Throughout the year, we will communicate with you via backpack letters, emails, school messenger, and text messaging. Please do not hesitate to contact the school counseling office to set up a conference, if needed. You may also email teachers, counselors, and school staff directly.  Appointments with administrators can be made by contacting the Main Office. 

I extend a special, year-long invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible starting with our Open House Meet the Teacher Night. Details will be provided later. 

Warmest Regards and hopes for a great year!

Tawanda Robinson, Ed. D.
