We are excited to announce that District 205 has adopted a new form of school-to-home communication called ParentSquare. This communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection and replaces our previous system.

Save the Date! York High School will host its 2nd Annual Back To School Bash on Tuesday, August 16 from 5pm-7pm. This event is open to all York students and families. The event will be held in our circle drive and will include building tours, music, games, food and parent organization membership opportunities. Thank you to our PTSA, Athletic Boosters and Foundation 205 for their assistance with planning this event. We look forward to seeing our families on the 16th.

ID and Yearbook photos will take place before the start of the school year.  Every student (9-12) must have a school ID for the 2022-23 school year and will need to attend one of the days below to have their photo taken for their ID and Yearbook.  Student ID’s will be issued on site during the following days and photos for all 9th, 10th and 11th graders will also be used for the Yearbook.
