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 following is a statement from Acting Superintendent Dr. Andrea Berry on behalf of the School District of the City of York:

The School District of the City of York thanks the Shippensburg Area School District for its gracious acknowledgment of inappropriate comments directed at York students and supporters after the Nov. 9 playoff football game between the Bearcats and the Shippensburg Greyhounds.

We appreciate the decisive action of the Shippensburg superintendent and the district’s Board of School Directors at a recent meeting to publicly condemn this hurtful behavior. (Click here for a link to a statement from the Shippensburg Area School District.)

We join the Shippensburg Area School District in taking seriously our responsibility to teach all children the inherent dignity of all people.

As we celebrate this historic Bearcat football season, let’s also celebrate the fact that we have built young men and women of strong character at the School District of the City of York.
