COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Update

January 15, 2021


Dear York Academy Families,


Earlier this evening, the Board of Trustees approved the amended York Academy Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan. (Click here to read it in Spanish.) This means that students will have the option to return to school in-person on Monday, February 1.


While York County is in the Moderate level of transmission (based on data from the COVID-10 Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard) students will come to school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. They will learn virtually on Wednesdays so we can deep clean the buildings.


Please see the chart below for more details regarding when we move into the Moderate and Low levels of transmission. 


So that we can plan for February 1, you will need to choose a learning model (in-person or eLearning) by Friday, January 22. Please note that you will be making this decision for the remainder of the school year.

In order to complete the form, you will need to include your child's York Academy ID Number. You can find it on their Progress Report (sent on 1/8/21) or on their report card from November. If you are not able to locate it, please email your child's homeroom teacher so they can help you.

To help with this decision, we will be holding two
Virtual Q&A Sessions to answer your questions about the return to in-person instruction. Videos from the sessions will be posted here so you can watch them if you miss them live. Click below to join the Zoom meeting(s):

Tuesday, January 19 at 12:00 p.m.

Tuesday, January 19 at 6:00 p.m.

We have also compiled this list of Frequently Asked Questions that may help you. It includes information about pool testing, which is a proactive approach that provides an additional layer of safety for your child and our staff.

If your child is planning to come back in-person and needs transportation/busing, please call (717) 801-3900, ext. 1401 or email Yailine Eshelman, our Transportation Coordinator, to make sure you have the required forms and paperwork.

We look forward to seeing your children back in person and are excited to have a terrific second half of the school year!

Stay safe and healthy,
Ms. Sugarek
