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.

School safety drill prepares students, staff for lockdown response

Posted on October 19th, 2018

Earlier this year, the state legislature passed Act 44 – School Safety and Security Act. The new law requires that every district hold an annual school safety drill with local first responders within the first 90 days of school. In compliance with the new law, the school district held a lockdown drill at 9:30 am. today, October 19, 2018. The purpose of this drill was for students and staff in each school building to practice the protocols for a lockdown.

The School District of the City of York works hard to ensure the safety of all students and staff at all times. To do that, we must be prepared for different scenarios that require our students and staff to take action. If you have any questions about this drill, please contact your child’s principal.
