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. Como compartimos con nuestra junta escolar recientemente, la educación probablemente se verá diferente este año. 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

Greetings Bearcat Family,

We are excited to present our Seniors with their diplomas on Thursday, June 4, 2020, between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. At this time, the student must return all textbooks, electronic devices, and district-loaned items (such as instruments, calculators, costumes, etc.).

Senior Device and Textbook Dropoff/Diploma Pick-up/ Locker Clean-out

  • All attendees are required to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines
  • Students should report to Door 33 (Princess Street Gym Doors) and find the assigned line based on their last name.
  • Students say their names to be identified on the list, return the district-issued electronic device, textbooks, and other district-loaned items.
  • Once cleared on the list, the students will be issued their diploma and any awards in which they were to receive.
  • Students will be asked if they have any personal items that they would like to retrieve from their lockers. If “yes”, students will be escorted into the building to retrieve them. If “no” you are giving permission to the School District of the City of York to discard any remaining items left in the school locker.

Note: Parents and/or guardians (with appropriate ID) are permitted to drop off and pick up the items listed above.

Reflecting on the district’s priorities of being equitable and understanding the impact of COVID-19 we have decided to forgive any remaining balances or financial obligations that were incurred for this school year.
