Parent Learning Option Intent Form

The School District of the City of York is working very hard to plan a safe return for our students and staff in the fall. As we shared with our school board recently, school will likely look different this year. We understand that every family is in a unique situation, health, and comfort level that we need to be ready to support. As a result, families will have two learning options for returning to school in Fall 2020 under the Green Phase. 1) In-person learning 2) K-12 Bearcat Cyber Academy. Please submit one form for each of your children enrolled at the School District of the City of York. This form will close on August 6, 2020 https://forms.gle/qzqL8Vk54xupmtDP9

Security Procedures

Through its School Police Department, the School District of the City of York has developed a protocol to handle any situation. During an emergency — or potential emergency — police use strategies to bring a situation under control and protect all students, staff and visitors.

Two emergency protocols that are used occasionally at schools are “shelter in place” and “lockdown.”

What is a lockdown?

A lockdown is generally called over the intercom or over the radio as an announcement for staff to secure all classrooms, offices and other spaces in order to keep students, visitors and themselves safe from the presence of a “sudden onset threat” already inside or rapidly approaching the building.

What is a shelter in place?

A “shelter in place” is a procedural technique implemented to secure (or move and secure) students and staff inside a controlled area, due to an identified exterior hazard, impending danger or potential threat from the outside.

Unlike a lockdown, shelter-in-place situations are generally less sudden in nature, giving staff time to strategically prepare for the safe-keeping of an identified group or the entire school community. This process allows a building to continue to function while responders assess potential external issues.

During this process, traffic in and out of the building should cease, or be done only in emergent situations under safe escort.
