Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!


I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new staff, students, and community members. We are extremely proud of the continued success of our students in the Yankton School District.


Please take the time to review the various elements contained within the YSD Newsletter. You will find a great deal of information regarding our schools, such as school supply lists, important telephone numbers, registration dates, and pertinent information regarding the school food service program, as well as school activities. The YSD Newsletter can be found at 


Our community has high expectations and a tradition of commitment to education, which is evident in the programs and opportunities available to our students.  The Yankton School District has a reputation for excellence in Academics, Career and Technical Education, Fine Arts and Extracurricular programming.  Our focus on the whole child begins with early childhood intervention and educating our students to become successful, productive citizens who are critical thinkers exhibiting strong character.


Students learn best when educators develop meaningful partnerships and relationships with students, parents, and the community.  We encourage and value your input as parents and patrons of the Yankton School District.  We believe in working together for the benefit of our children, families, and community.


We are very proud of our students, community, and our outstanding school system.  The education and safety of our students is very important.  We will work very hard to make sure we provide a top notch education and safe learning environment for our students, as well as staff.


Please check out the Yankton School District Homepage at www.ysd.k12.sd.us. You are always welcome to contact me at any time to visit.  I am also available to come and speak to your group.  Feel free to contact me at wkindle@ysd.k12.sd.us or 665-3998. 


In closing, we sincerely hope that you will find the Yankton School District committed to developing the finest educational system in the state. We believe that with your support, we will continue to grow and prosper.
