About Your Child and Release Forms

The Yocum Institute is pleased to welcome students in grades 1-5 and 6-9 who are enrolled in either Hybrid or Fully Online classes this Fall. We are scheduling our program by Wilson School District (including accommodations for the Secondary A/B model) schedule. Starting September 8th, you can register weekly or through October 30th.

We can’t replace your teachers, but we do have a wonderful support staff with your child all day as they navigate their online classes. Of course, being an Arts Education destination, based on the students’ interest they will choose from Art Breaks with Teaching Artists in Acting, Drawing, Painting, Dance, Creative Writing and more!

Enrollment is very limited. This is to allow for social distancing as well as cohorts using different sections of the building with separate HVAC systems. During all parts of this program, both students and staff are encouraged to remain socially distant and are required to wear masks.
