Volunteer Clearances
We are aware that there are many parents/guardians or family members who wish to register to volunteer in our schools in the 2020-2021 school year. Our school and event volunteers are incredibly important to the success of many special activities our students, staff and families anticipate each year.

Unfortunately, given the guidelines for schools to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a likelihood that some of our normal activities and events involving volunteers will not be held during the school day as planned. This will be necessary for the district to comply with guidelines on the number of people in schools/buildings at one time during the day.

We are working on a plan and protocol for reopening our schools and guidance for volunteers in schools and will be available before school reopens.

Please bear this in mind as you consider renewing or applying for clearances at this time. We will share additional communication on this item as soon as it is available.

 





CYSD Weekly Update - 7.1.20

Administration + School Offices Opening to Public on July 1, 2020

Central York School District will re-open school offices and the Educational Service Center to the public on July 1, 2020. 

Summer office hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:30AM-4PM. The office will be CLOSED July 2 & 3 in observance of the Independence Day Holiday. 

Employees will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing protocols in accordance with the CDC guidelines for reopening in the “Green” Phase. 

We ask that all visitors who wish to enter our buildings wear a mask and practice social distancing while waiting for service in our reception areas/offices. We also ask that all visitors self-monitor for signs of illness or symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath) before entering any of our facilities at this time. 

At this time, our facilities and grounds remain closed for group gatherings. We will announce plans to reopen for specific uses and in accordance with CDC/State guidelines for reopening in the “Green” Phase after July 1, 2020. 

Board Approves Reopening Health & Safety Plan, Athletic Safety Plan for CYSD

The Central York School District Board of School Directors on Monday, June 29, 2020, approved the Administration's Health & Safety Plan and the Athletic Health & Safety Plan for Reopening Schools for the 2020-2021 School Year. These plans outline how the school district will safely reopen school and hold athletic/co-curricular activities for the 2020-2021 school year. Each plan can be viewed via the following link: http://www.cysd.k12.pa.us.

Central York School District is planning for Total Reopening of schools in the fall, as indicated in the Health & Safety Plan.  Total Reopening means our schools are open for all students and staff for in-person instruction, with social distancing and safety measures in place in accordance with COVID-19 guidance.

This will include an option for full-time distance learning in our Central York Cyber Academy for those uncomfortable with in-person instruction during this time. 

The District is also preparing for other scenarios, including Blended Reopening and Total Remote Learning, in the event that we are not permitted to reopen due to developments with the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Blended Reopening
 is a mix of in-person learning in our schools and remote learning. This would require learners to have a blend of in-school days with face-to-face instruction, and remote learning days.

 Total Remote Learning means that all students will participate in full-time remote learning with no in-school instruction.

Please know that, like you, the District hopes to return to a "normal" school environment and schedule as much as possible. 

Although no decision has been made on the final scenario for how school will be conducted in Fall of 2020, approval of the Health & Safety Plan and the Athletic Health & Safety Plan is required by the state in order to move toward reopening. 
The plans will now be submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by the state.

What's Next:
The District will survey parents/guardians and faculty/staff about several items related to reopening schools. These surveys will be conducted throughout the next two weeks, and the results will be used to help guide our finalized protocols in support of our approved Health and Safety Plan. 

The School Board and Administration will review survey feedback and any updates to the Health & Safety Plan at the July 20, 2020 Public School Board Meeting.  

Please watch your email for the survey and take a moment to share your feedback with the administration. Your answers and comments are critical to our reopening process. 

We are working daily on plans and guidelines for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. 

The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff is of utmost importance to us, and we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our area.

Reopening Schools Letter to Parents/Guardians

Dr. Snell, Superintendent, recently shared a letter with Central York families regarding the District’s plans for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year. The letter is included below for your reference. 

Dear Central York School District Parent or Guardian,

The administration, faculty and staff of Central York School District are working hard to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year. Please know that, like you, we hope to return to a “normal” school environment and schedule as much as possible. We are evaluating how to safely conduct school under the current guidance related to COVID-19 as we develop our plans for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year. 

No decision has been made on the final scenario for how school will be conducted in Fall of 2020. There are several possible scenarios that we must consider, including the following: 

  • Total Reopening: A total reopening of our schools for all students and staff, with social distancing and safety measures in place in accordance with COVID-19 guidance. This will include an option for full-time distance learning in our Central York Cyber Academy for those uncomfortable with in-person instruction during this time. 
  • Blended Reopening: A mix of in-person learning in our schools and remote learning. This would require learners to have a blend of in-school days with face-to-face instruction, and remote learning days. 
  • Total Remote Learning: All students will participate in full-time remote learning with no in-school instruction. 

While we do not have a definitive decision on what the 2020-2021 school year will look like at this point, please be aware of the following ongoing and upcoming activities related to reopening schools: 

  • The District has committees meeting weekly throughout the summer to address the following areas related to reopening our schools: Learning, Health, Communications, Safety, Facilities, and Wellness. These committees include faculty, support staff, parents/guardians, community members, School Board members and administrators to ensure that all stakeholders are sharing input on our plans for 2020-2021. We have a comprehensive list of topics to address to ensure we are considering the impact of all possible reopening scenarios on our families, students, faculty and staff. 
  • In addition, the district’s administration has prepared our Health & Safety Plan and our Extracurricular Safety Plan (in compliance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education) and will present these for approval to our School Board during a special virtual public meeting at 6:30PM on June 29. These plans have been developed in compliance with PDE, PIAA and the Centers for Disease Control and will guide our reopening efforts going forward. 
  • Finally, the District plans to survey parents/guardians in the near future on the reopening options and scenarios shared above. Please take the time to participate in this survey and provide feedback that will help us learn more about your thoughts on reopening schools for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Please know that we are working daily on plans and guidelines for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff is of utmost importance to us, and we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our area. 

We will provide you with additional updates as more information is available, and thank you in advance for your cooperation, support and continued patience throughout this unique time.

Sincerely, 

Michael Snell, Ed.D.

Music Boosters Award Scholarship

The Neil E. Shue Memorial Music Scholarship was established in 1974 in memory of Neil Shue, an outstanding band member, student, and drum major of the marching band. Neil died from leukemia in 1972 before he was able to realize his life-long dream of becoming a music teacher. The scholarship is awarded each year to a Central York senior or seniors who will be pursuing a 4-year college degree in the field of music.  

The award of $1200 each is being presented this year to Matthew Guadagnino who will be attending Duquesne University for Music Education  and to  Madison Horner who will be attending Susquehanna University for Music Education. Congratulations and best wishes to Matthew and Madison!

CYSD Update - June 4, 2020

A Message for Our Faculty, Staff & Families:

Earlier this week, Dr. Snell, Superintendent, and Mr. Caufman, High School Principal, shared messages with our CYSD community affirming that our district does not tolerate racism and is no place for hate. We are sharing the links to their messages below in case you did not view them earlier. We encourage you to share Mr. Caufman’s message for students with your children so that you can dialogue as a family about ways to end racism and hate.

Dr. Snell’s Message: http://cysd.ss5.sharpschool.com/cms/One.aspx?portalId=3161898&pageId=3161906

Mr. Caufman’s Message: 

https://youtu.be/2mgqo-1GEBc

The events unfolding around our community and nation can be difficult and stressful for our students to process and understand. Please know that our counselors, school social workers and diversity specialists are available to speak with any student who would like to talk about this or any other issue. 

There are many resources available online to help you talk with your children and family about the racially charged incidents happening around the country and how we can foster a safe and anti-racist environment. 

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture has released a portal of educational resources related to race and race relations in the United States and can be accessed here: https://nmaahc.si.edu/about/news/national-museum-african-american-history-and-culture-releases-talking-about-race-web

If you have younger students who are looking for ways to learn more about what’s happening around the country and here in our community, your family may be interested on this upcoming activity: https://thebrownbookshelf.com/2020/06/02/kidlit-rally-for-black-lives/

Central York School District prides itself on our diverse community and strives to be a safe and accepting environment for ALL students, families and community members. We know that we can always become better and we will continue to work toward creating a culture and climate in which ALL of our students, faculty and staff feel safe and accepted.
