COVID-19 VACCINATIONS FOR YANKTON SCHOOL DISTRICT STAFF

Staff vaccinations for COVID-19 have begun to take place since the first week of March for those who qualified meeting the criteria set forth by the South Dakota Department of Health. Since then the vaccination process allowing all staff has opened up with many staff receiving a vaccination.

The vaccination along with ongoing masking, cleaning, social distancing and other mitigation strategies set forth since August in the Yankton School District continue to keep our children in school.

The Yankton School District will continue our masking and mitigation strategies. Thank you students, staff and parents for your cooperation!
