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 District Of The City Of York

Volunteers needed to serve as liaisons between schools and families

Posted on September 14th, 2018

The School District of the City of York is looking for parents/guardians to serve as liaisons between our schools and our students’ families. We have openings at the following buildings: Davis K-8, Devers K-8, STEAM Academy and Jackson K-8.

These volunteers facilitate communication between parents and school administrators. They help to plan meetings and work to include all stakeholders.

The Parent-School Liaison is bilingual or works closely with bilingual staff to ensure that all parents are given timely, adequate and appropriate notice of all meetings, programs, initiatives and news from the school and the district.

The Parent-School Liaison works with the District Parent Liaison to ensure that any parent who has expressed an interest in becoming more involved at the school is contacted. The Parent-School Liaison also works with the District Parent Liaison in networking between schools and at the district level on parent outreach activities.

Clearances are required to volunteer in this capacity.
