Bulldog Blast - August 14, 2021


    YES Bulldog Blast - August 14, 2021



    Hello Bulldog Families!

    It's almost Welcome Back Week here at York. Next week, we welcome back our phenomenal staff and soon after we will welcome our amazing PreK-5 Bulldogs! 

    We understand that there are a variety of concerns and positions on a host of topics right now in our world. Please know that we remain committed to providing a safe, welcoming, healthy, and peaceful learning environment for everyone whether your are on-campus or remote this year. We appreciate everything you will do to help keep our Community of Care YORK STRONG!

    We've tried VERY hard to avoid information overload during the summer. We all needed a little screen break. We recognize the importance of keeping you updated, and promise to communicate timely, but still efficiently! The Bulldog Blasts are one way to stay connected and in the loop.

    Our very first Bulldog Blast newsletter for the 2021-2022 school year is linked below, please take a moment to review it as there is important information pertaining to the beginning of the school year and logistics.



    YORK is where it's at this year!


    Kate Williams, Principal
