York Community High School


Situation at York High School, Friday 11/30

York Parents and Guardians:

This afternoon, a 911 call was placed to Elmhurst Police Department, regarding the possible presence of a weapon in the building. The call follows a similar tip from a student. We immediately alerted Elmhurst Police Department, and our School Liaison Officers responded immediately to investigate. No weapon has been found. Instead, the noise reported has been confirmed to be a student playing a video game in a bathroom stall.

However, we continue to remain vigilant and alert. Officers will maintain a presence at the building though dismissal. The safety of our students and campus is of the utmost importance. We take seriously any tips or reports from our school community. All matters are shared with Elmhurst Police Department and our School Police Liaisons and thoroughly investigated.

We appreciate the swift and thorough action of our police department and the actions they take to keep our students and community safe. 

Thank you,
York High School Administration
