Details About William Penn Senior High School Evacuation

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.

William Penn graduate featured in Martketview Arts installation

Posted on December 4th, 2018

York College artist-in-residence and William Penn Senior High School graduate Jessica Jane Julius is presenting an installation titled “What are you afraid of?” at Marketview Arts, 37 W. Philadelphia St., through Jan. 19. The installation is open to the public free of charge.

Politicians, activists, and scholars often refer to a “culture of fear.” Julius’s community-based installation examines the culture of fear through the lens of visual and performing arts offering a new perspective into how fear pervades every aspect of how people relate to and interpret the world around them.

During the run of the exhibition, Julius is encouraging current York City students participating in the project to analyze their fears, understand their origin, and take power over them.
