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

El Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de York está trabajando muy duro para planear un regreso seguro para nuestros estudiantes y empleados en el otoño.

Entendemos que necesitamos estar preparados para apoyar a nuestras familias ya que cada familia se encuentra en una situación, salud y nivel de confort único. Como resultado, las familias tendrán dos opciones de aprendizaje para volver a las clases en el otoño del 2020 en la Fase Verde. 1) Aprendizaje en persona 2) Academia Cibernética Bearcat K-12. Por favor, envíe un formulario por cada uno de sus hijos matriculados en el Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de York. Este formulario se cerrará el 6 de agosto del 2020
