First Day of School 

We had a great first day welcoming over 620 learners to Sinking Springs!!!!

Look how the Sinking Springs Staff ended their first day!

The Sinking Springs staff cooled off at the end of our first day by participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge. The staff donated money as part of the challenge to go to the Panther Pantry which will benefit our Central York families. They challenged the Central York Elementary schools, Central York administrators, and a wonderful friend, Charlet Miller, former principal of Sinking Springs Elementary to the Ice Bucket Challenge.

 Welcome to the  following new staff members at Sinking Springs Elementary !

Mrs. Linda Mumme - 4th grade

Miss Savanna Richard- Learning Support - 5th grade 

Mrs. Anne Smith - ELL

NEW Student Drop-off procedures in AM

In order to continue to create a safe environment for all students, please be aware that student morning drop-off will be in the upper parking lot near the cafeteria.

Please enter the drop-off area at the first entrance (closest to Susquehanna Trail) of the upper parking lot. Proceed toward the school where cones will mark the drop-off area in front of the cafeteria.  After dropping off your student, you will continue to the end of the cones, turn left, and exit the parking lot. Please try to have your child exit your car from the right side to help with the flow of traffic.

 Your child will enter the school through the cafeteria doors between 8:30 and 8:40 in the morning. They will sit at tables in the cafeteria until the 8:40 bell rings then walk to their homeroom, or eat breakfast in the cafeteria. There will be adult coverage in the cafeteria at this time.  

 If they are dropped off between 8:40 and 9:00AM, they will enter the building through the main lobby doors as they have done in the past.

 Students entering the building after 9:00AM will need to enter through the main lobby doors, accompanied by an adult who will sign them into the building.

 THANK YOU for your cooperation with this very important SAFETY ISSUE!

Security Enhancements for 2014-2015
Central York School District considers the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff to be of the utmost importance. We strive to create a learning environment that protects the health and safety of ALL of our students and employees. 

This year when you enter Sinking Springs you will be greeted by one of our staff members on the right side of the lobby at a new window area.  They will assist you in picking up your child, dropping off your child or any items you may be bringing to school for your child. If you are dropping off or picking up items or students, the lobby will be the area of the school to complete these tasks.

To help out our office staff, labeling the item you are dropping off with your child's name will be very helpful. We will also have supplies in the drop off area to help with labeling any items.  

Those who are meeting with staff members, volunteering, or completing paperwork will proceed ino the office area.

Any adult entering the building will be signed into our School Gate Guardian system to allow us to keep an accurate log of who enters the buidlng each day. Please bring your driver's license with you the first time you enter the building, if you were not logged into our system last year. If you do not have your driver's license, our office staff will ask you for basic information to record in the system, and take a picture of you for our system. 

Thanks for your cooperation as we continue each year to improve the safety and security for our Sinking Springs learners, our staff, and our families.
