    Carpool Tags

    • If your student will be using carpool throughout the year, we will be giving those out when school starts. After the first few weeks of school carpool numbers will be available at the front office. Just call the office to let us know you need a number.
    • If your Kindergarten student has an older sibling at York Elementary, the whole family will use the same carpool number.  
    • We re-issue new carpool tags each year - please dispose of last year's tag.

    • A parent must bring the medication to school and sign the medication into the office (DO NOT send medications in with the child) - Please call the school first so that we can set up a time for you to drop medications off.
    • Medications must be in their original containers with the prescription label
