Hello York Dukes! Things are looking a little different this year but we would still like to add a little York swag to your step. The York Athletic Boosters have moved the back-to-school Spiritwear Sale online. We have a great new selection of York gear - T-shirts, sweatshirts, a bucket hat, windbreaker and even masks.

In order to break down the vast amount of information needed to understand and work through the entire college application and financial aid process, York has programs designed to help. 

Senior Family Summer Session: 

In lieu of in-person sessions, the presentation slides and breakdown of information is provided, below. This information is VITAL in order for you to use Naviance correctly in your application process.

I hope that this communication finds you and your family well! As your new principal, I was optimistic that there would be an opportunity to host an in-person introductory meeting. Unfortunately, that is not possible at this time. As an alternative, I have provided our families with a quick introductory video with information that may be helpful as we approach the start of the 2020-21 school year. Please click the link here to access the video. More virtual and written communication with our families will be forthcoming.

In closing, I would like our families to know that more specific information regarding the start of the 2020-21 school year will be shared with our parents in early August. On behalf of the York administration, we appreciate your patience and support during these unprecedented times.

I look forward to meeting all of our amazing York families.

Go Dukes!

Dear D205 Families and Staff,

We hope that you are healthy, well, and enjoying the summer with your families. Thank you to those who tuned in to watch last night’s YouTube live stream of the regularly scheduled D205 Board of Education meeting. The video of the meeting has registered more than 5,500 views. Such viewership is a strong indicator that our school community remains vigilant and committed to the health and safety of our students and staff as well as academic excellence as we prepare for the start of the 2020-21 school year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

At last evening's meeting, the Board of Education approved a resolution to adopt Open D205: A Plan for Safe, Healthy, Rigorous Learning. We strongly feel that this comprehensive plan addresses health, safety and learning needs as we understand them today. The Open D205 Plan also affords families the following assurances:

  • Choice – The Open D205 Plan allows any parent/guardian of a child the option to have their child educated remotely. Parents will receive an email questionnaire from District 205 regarding learning and transportation options for the 2020-21 school year this Friday, July 17, 2020. Your prompt review and response is appreciated.
