COVID-19 Hub

We are committed to keeping our YARCS family in the know. This page serves as our COVID-19 Hub and will be updated regularly.

Updated on August 8, 2022:

Throughout the pandemic, our COVID-19 Safe Return Committee has worked behind the scenes to keep our school community as safe as possible. This committee is comprised of parents, and members of our staff and Board of Trustees. In early March, the committee met and agreed to continue to follow CDC guidance regarding masking. 

Masks will continue to be optional for all students, staff, parents and visitors. If your children feel safer wearing masks at school, they are welcomed and encouraged to do so. We urge you to talk with them and make the best choice for your family.

Please continue to monitor your children for COVID-19 symptoms each morning using our Daily Screening Tool and keep them home if they are sick. 
Testing will not be offered this school year, so this is extremely important. In addition, if they have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19 (especially in your household), they should wear a mask to school to protect others. 
If your child is sick - even if it's not COVID - we ask that you consider having them wear a mask to prevent illness from spreading. When in doubt about sending your child to school, please contact the school nurse for advice.

The Safe Return Committee will continue to monitor state and federal guidance, and local data. If York County experiences an increase in community level, mitigation efforts will be implemented for the safety of our York Academy family.

In addition, as with all vaccinations, if your child received the COVID-10 vaccine please let our nurses know. Simply take a picture of their card with your phone and email it to Ms. Halloran (K-6) or Mrs. Urey (7-12) for our records. 

Together, we must all make positive decisions inside and outside of school to keep our entire school community safe. Let's "uknight" in the fight against COVID at York Academy! Your support is deeply appreciated.
