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.

Davis K – 8


List of Partners we would like to specifically acknowledge for Davis K – 8:

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church:

St. Andrew’s holds a monthly “All Pro Dad’s” breakfast.  This program, started by NFL Coach Tony Dungy, includes a free breakfast and a short informational program on parenting topics.  The purpose of this program is to get students’ and their male role models (father, grandfather, uncle, etc.) involved; however, it is open to everyone!  The “All Pro Dad’s” breakfast will be held the first Thursday of every month (with the exception of January, when it will be held the second Thursday).

St. Andrew’s also sends volunteers to Davis every Thursday to help with our food backpack program.  The food is donated by the York Benevolent Association and provides approximately 100 students with a backpack full of food for their home.  The volunteers from St. Andrew’s pack the backpacks and hand them out to our students.

St. Andrew’s donated $500.00 during the 2015-2016 school year specifically for uniforms.  This money was used and will be used to purchase uniforms for students who are in need of school uniforms for the school year. Volunteers from St. Andrew’s also attend and assist at our after-school evening functions.


LCBC held a winter coat giveaway at Davis during the 2015-2016 school year.  They purchased 60 winter coats and gave them to students in need.

Volunteers from LCBC also made a home-cooked meal for the teachers at Davis K – 8.  This staff appreciation dinner was held in December 2015.  Pastor Paul Atkinson stated that they wanted to do this to show how much they appreciate what the staff does each and every day.

The congregation at LCBC donated and delivered school supplies for our students in December 2015. Finally, volunteers from LCBC also attend and assist at several after-school evening functions.

Advent Lutheran Church:

Advent Lutheran supports more than 300 of our students yearly by providing backpacks and school supplies to start the year equipped for the classroom.  Throughout the year they provide teachers with classroom essentials such as hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues and hand soaps to keep germs at bay.  For several years they have made donations of books (new and gently used) to supply students with additional reading material.
