The school day for all grades, K-5, is 8:25-2:55. Students need to be in their lines at 8:23 for the first bell so they can be in their classrooms, ready to learn, by 8:25. Students are tardy at 8:21. There is no playground supervision before 8:10, so please make sure your child does not arrive before then. If your child/children participate in our breakfast program they may arrive as early as 8:05.
On days students will be lining up inside the building before school because of cold or wet weather, there will be a yellow flag displayed on the front of the building, near the front doors.
If you are enrolling a new student at Yale, or if you need to update your address, you will need to go to the Aurora Public Schools Centralized Admission Office. You will need to have proof of your address and a photo ID. For more enrollment information, including location and hours of operation for the Centralized Admission Office, please click here.

Please note that Yale is following a construction calendar this year. Due to this schedule, Yale students may have different days off of school than students at APS schools on the conventional calendar. The last day of school for students on the construction calendar will be April 29, 2013 (the last day for students on the conventional calendar is May 22). Both calendars share the same dates for fall, winter and spring breaks. However, some teacher work days and in-service days--when students don't attend classes--will be held on different days than those scheduled on the conventional calendar.
