How does drop off and pick up work at the Lower School?

Drop Off:
Click here to view a map that explains the best ways to drop off your student(s) at the Lower School in the morning. Parents driving students to the Lower School should utilize Cherry Lane to drop off their children. To keep students safe, parents may not drop off students on Beaver Street (bus lane), at the stop sign (intersection of Beaver and W. North Street) or in front of the Lower School on W. North Street.

Pick Up: Since York Academy does not own the land or parking lots surrounding the Lower School, make sure to pay attention to the posted parking signs. The dismissal process is designed to limit parents' need to park long-term. Lower School dismissal begins at 3:15 p.m. with bus students, followed by K-3 at 3:20 p.m. and grades 3 – 6 at 3:25 p.m. Parents should be able to park close nearby for 15 minutes or less, walk to the gate, pick up their child(ren) and return to their car. Parking is available in the gravel lot across from the Lower School playground or in public parking spots near the school. Parking is not available in the Kinsley lot across from the Lower School.
