Details about response to accident involving district school bus

This morning, a bus transporting students from William Penn Senior High School to the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy was involved in an accident. Six students were transported to the hospital for assessment of possible injuries. As of 3 p.m., each of the students had been treated and released from the hospital. The driver of the school bus was also transported to the hospital. All other students on the bus were evaluated by school nurses.

The school district contacted parents of the affected students and will report more information to the public when it is available. The safety and well-being of our students is always our top priority. We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we continue to investigate.

District announces enrollment details for 2019-20 Pre-K program

Posted on March 4th, 2019

The School District of the City of York has announced the opening of the registration process for the 2019-20 Pre-K program.

Through a partnership with Community Progress Council, the School District of the City of York has provided a free, high-quality Pre-Kindergarten program for York City 4-year-olds since the 2007-08 academic year. Pre-K gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school and be better prepared for kindergarten. The research-based curriculum focuses on building children’s social and academic skills.

The district’s program has received consistently high scores from the state to prove the program’s high quality. Data analyses consistently show that students who had attended the district’s Pre-K classes achieve significantly higher scores on standardized tests than students who did not attend the Pre-K program.

Children who live in York City and who will be 4 years old by Aug. 31, 2019 are eligible for 2019-20 enrollment.

Parents/guardians must call (717) 849-1398 to make a registration appointment, which will be held between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on one of the following dates:

Wednesday, March 27
