PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT - ACTIVITIES/ATHLETICS
Extracurricular programs are an integral part of the educational experience and play an important role in the growth and development of young men and women.
Dear York Families,
The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. We have experienced an increase in COVID exposures and cases within our athletic program over the last week, which has caused concern.
Our goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible to our students in a safe environment. The IHSA has approved up to 20 additional contact dates for winter, spring and summer season sports between September 7 and October 31. The contact days are optional for students and coaches. Information regarding voluntary team workouts will be shared by our head coaches and posted on our athletic website in the coming days.
Athletic teams requiring inside facilities will be postponed at this time. We will continue to evaluate the status of potential COVID exposures and cases within our athletic programs.
