Medication Pick-Up Notice

As the end of the school year is approaching, I would like to remind you to arrange for pickup of your child’s medication at school. The medication cannot be sent home with your child or a sibling.


Please pick up your child’s medication on the following days: May 28 – May 31, at the school’s front office. Medications left at the school after the above date will then be discarded per YES Prep policy.

On the first day back to school you will need to fill out a new Medication Authorization and/or Physician Statement form for the upcoming school year if your child needs medication during school hours. As a reminder, each medication needs a separate Medication Authorization form.

Thank you for your cooperation. Have a great summer!

See you next school year,

Hi Sparks Families!


Students in K-5th grade will be engaged in end-of-year MAP testing. The testing window will be from May 6- May 24.

Please view the schedule below to see specific dates/times your student will be testing.

  • It is imperative that students arrive to school by 7:30 AM on the days of MAP testing to ensure they complete the test with their class. Additionally, it is important that students come to school with their laptop, charger, and headphones, as all tests are completed online.


  • Most importantly, please celebrate your student’s hard work this year and motivate them to give their very best on this test! This test will measure their progress this school year and help them set goals. Remind them to take their time, show their work, and do their best! We know that all our students can be successful in showing what they know! Please take an opportunity to encourage them to do their best and remind them that we all believe in them! 😊


  • It is imperative that students are present on the days of their MAP tests. We have a requirement by the district for 100% of students to be tested to ensure they receive proper support next year. If a student is not present on their designated testing day, they may be required to complete make up testing during special events such as senior walk, field day, and picnics. Please plan ahead so your student can be present on their day of testing.

If you have any questions or concerns about MAP testing, please feel free to comment below or email Mrs. Ybarra at Jaime.Ybarra@yesprep.org


Is your student using the school bus for the 2024-25 school year?

If so, please log into your Skyward account and complete the transportation registration form by June 14.

PS: If you forgot your Skyward login information, please message Ms. Bustamante.
