Ski Club Changes

We realize that this has been quite the year! Due to Covid-19 regulations, we can not have our traditional ski club; however, Ski Club will continue in a different way. Our third through eighth grade students will be able to purchase their products individually through our group login on Bristol’s website at our ski club rates. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from the mountain. Penn Yan Staff will not be there to supervise students. Your family will get ski club rates from Bristol Mountain, but parents/guardians will be responsible for your own child/children. The package will be similar to the traditional program with rentals and lessons sold separately. Reservations will be required for lessons and rentals. (Click the title for more information)

Yates Christmas Program

Yes, there will be Christmas in 2020. The Yates Christmas Program is creative and flexible in light of the pandemic’s limitation on safe assembling. There will not be a distribution of clothing, toys, games, and blankets as in other years, but keeping the health and safety of families and volunteers in mind, a drive-through distribution of gift cards will be Santa’s solution (Cont.)
