Beck’s Bookstore will again offer the Pre-Pack option to speed up the booksale process. Express Checkout allows families to pre-order textbooks and pick them up during booksales. Beck’s “Search by ID” function will allow families to access a student-specific list of textbook titles and required course fees. Families interested in the Pre-Pack option can visit www.YorkHighSchoolBookstore.com. The site will be ready for orders in early July, and all orders must be placed by July 23, 2018. Express orders will be bundled and ready for pick up on the dates designated above. Books and course fees will be paid on the day the books are picked up.


Paying for Textbooks, Chromebooks and Fees


Textbooks, Chromebooks, fees and yearbooks can all be purchased in one transaction per student with cash, check, or credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa). Families with multiple students will have to bring multiple checks. All checks must be made payable to Beck’s Bookstore.


Financial Assistance Information


There are several options available for families in need of financial assistance:

  • District Financial Assistance for Student Fees and Books – Families that meet guidelines established by the District can receive assistance with fees, Chromebook and book costs. To receive assistance, the Request for Financial Assistance form must be completed and returned to the District Office with the required supporting documentation. After July 1st, these forms can be found on the District 205 registration website or in the York Principal’s Office.
  • Free and Reduced Lunch – Families that meet the federal guidelines are entitled to free or reduced lunch. To receive assistance, the Free and Reduced Lunch form must be completed and returned to the District Office.

Additional Information about the York Registration Process:


Yearbook Photos

All 9th, 10th and 11th graders will have a yearbook picture taken during booksales. Please fill out this form and supply payment if you would like to purchase yearbook photos.


Students should dress appropriately. Make-up dates are September 18th and 19th in the Commons.


Student IDs

Each student will receive an ID and lanyard during registration which must be worn by the student at all times. The ID also serves as an activity pass. This pass may be used for entry into regular season home athletic events, concerts, plays, and to participate in intramural activities and clubs. Student IDs are also required to ride the bus and enter the cafeteria.


Student Schedules

All students will receive their schedules during booksales in August.



Incoming freshmen, transfer students and athletes must have current physicals. Forms are available on the York website and at www.elmhurst205.org. An athletic physical does not meet the requirements for a Freshman Physical.


Due to a change in the State’s immunizations requirements, all seniors must provide proof of two doses of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine to the high school by the start of the 2018-2019 school year.


Food Service Plan

A staff member from York Food Services will be available during booksales to assist families and provide information regarding our food service options.

Supporting Parent Organizations

Parents that are interested in supporting school organizations or volunteering for various opportunities may click here to support these organizations: PTSA, Booster organizations, and the District 205 Foundation.


Enjoy your summer!
