All Yankton Public School students, including JrK-12th grade will be dismissed at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 23, for the Yankton High School Pioneer Days Homecoming Parade. There is no afternoon Preschool at Webster School or Early Childhood Preschool at Stewart School that day.
Bus students who ride Yankton School District buses will load the buses at 1:50 at their respective buildings. They will make the exchange at YMS and will leave YMS at approximately 2:15. Parents of elementary students may pick up their bus students at school at 2:00 p.m. if they are not riding the bus that day and have notified the school in advance.
Parents of JrK students at Webster should pick them up at school at 1:45 p.m., as they will be dismissed earlier due to traffic. Parents of in-town students should pick them up at school at 2:00 p.m. All elementary students should return the parade notice to their teacher, so plans are known for the early dismissal.
The parade will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will cross 2nd Street and head north towards 3rd Street. It will then turn right (east) on 3rd Street and will end at Pine Street. If inclement weather occurs, the parade will be cancelled but school will still be dismissed at 2:00 pm.
