In case you missed the email from Mr. Lee on Friday:
I am thankful for your patience and understanding while our teachers' create/re-create lessons for their students. I am extremely impressed with how hard our teachers are working to accommodate our students! Most of the lessons are up and ready. We will also have hard copies of work in filing cabinets at the front doors of York; these hard copies should be ready by Monday afternoon. The cabinets are labeled by department to help with that process.
The building is closed to outside visitors. This now includes the track and fields. We were forced to lock them down due to the Governor's declaration of public health disaster. This saddens me as I want the track to always be open to the community outside of school and school activity hours. I am planning on putting together a virtual running group for fun next week. Feel free to share that with your Grizzly(s). You can also be involved if you are looking for some competition!
Instruments will be available for pick up from 10-12 Monday. Parents/Students MUST email in advance so instruments can be pulled. Parents should drive up to the band hall entrance and instruments will be delivered to the vehicle. More details will be provided via email when the appointment is made.
Drill Team Tryouts
Orange Pride Drill Team tryouts have been postponed until further notice. We are looking potentially at a dates in May but are not ready to release those dates yet. We will provide more information in the future.
Here are some resources from our Library. Your Grizzly(s) can access our York JH catalog and books that can be read online through the link below.

In light of when we might return to school (April 13th), a digital application packet through Google Forms has been created. This would be for candidates that received a blue academic eligibility invitation to apply to the chapter of NJHS before Spring Break. Candidates can type the same necessary information into the digital application as they would if submitting a hard copy application. They can also upload their one-page essay, personal recommendation, and teacher recommendations, if they were in the process of handing recommendations out before break.
Candidates can also submit the hard copy upon our return, but applicants can also fill out the application packet digitally. The new due date is also stated in the form (April 17, 2020), assuming we return on April 13th.
The following link will guide the candidate to the digital application: https://forms.gle/qfbk5D6xGAvhcLhK8
From Nurse Tammy
While schools are closed to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), please protect yourselves and others by following CDC recommendations. You can help protect your family from COVID-19 by practicing and promoting everyday healthy habits.
Practice social distancing to limit the spread of the virus. Social distancing is staying 3-6 feet from other people and not hugging or shaking hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you or your child are sick, stay at home and contact your healthcare provider.
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Cover your cough or sneeze with the inside of your elbow or a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Viruses are spread more easily with this type of contact.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask, which does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.
Please go to the following link for more in-depth information from the CDC. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
If you are feeling ill, utilize this CDC online self-checker and they will assist you with how to proceed: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html
