With spring on our doorstep, it’s time to begin to think about the spring SAT to be delivered at York on Wednesday, April 5th, beginning at 7:40 AM. In a few weeks, we will be sending out an email to families with testing day reminders, dismissal times and bus schedules; however, we wanted to give an early reminder for families as they plan their spring calendars. On April 5th, senior students are not in attendance, and all juniors will be taking the SAT. All currently enrolled juniors have been registered for the test, and there is no additional fee. While juniors are taking the SAT, our sophomores and freshmen will be participating in a career day that will include a keynote speaker, career fair, and several sessions throughout the day. We hope this advance notice helps with your planning, and please keep an eye out for our detailed email mid-March.
Con la primavera ya acercándose, es hora de comenzar a pensar en el examen SAT que será dado en la Secundaria York el miércoles, 5 de abril, comenzando a las 7:40 AM. En pocas semanas, estaremos enviando un correo electrónico a las familias con recordatorios de días del examen, tiempos de despidas y horario de autobuses; Sin embargo, quisiéramos dar un recordatorio temprano para las familias para que planean sus calendarios de la primavera. El 5 de abril, los estudiantes de último año (Seniors) no asisten a la escuela, y todos los estudiantes en tercer año (Juniors) tomarán el SAT. Todos los alumnos en el tercer año de secundaria (Juniors) que están inscritos en la escuela han sido registrados para el examen y no hay ningún costo adicional.

As we welcome your child to York High School in the fall, we want to take this opportunity to explain the health requirements for incoming freshman students. Illinois State law requires that all incoming freshmen have an updated physical examination and proof of receiving all required immunizations on file. The physical examination must be on either the state-approved certificate of health form; the approved form provided by some physicians’ offices; or on the form found on the district website, www.elmhurst205.org. Please note that the IHSA Sports Physical form is not acceptable for entry into 9th grade.
In order for your child to be in compliance with the physical examination and immunization requirements, the following MUST be completed as directed:
Please note: Incomplete examination forms and incomplete immunization records will be returned to you for completion. Your child will not be compliant with Illinois State Law until the necessary documentation is on file. The completed physical form must be on file in the York Health Services Office by the 1st day of school. Students who do not have a completed 9th grade physical and immunization record on file by the first day of school, will be placed on a list for possible exclusion. District 205 will exclude students from school according to state law, at the minimum date set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education. Once the student is excluded, the student will not be allowed to attend school, or participate in or attend any school functions, including athletic or extracurricular activities, until the required physical examination and immunization documentation is received in the Health Services Office.
Please submit completed physicals to the York High School Health Services Office. They may be mailed, brought into the Health Services Office, or faxed only to (630)-782-6594. During summer break, health records can be turned in at the York Main Office. Do not turn the form in to summer school staff, counselors, hall monitors or coaches. Please keep a copy for your records.
Students who do not have access to a health care provider may contact the DuPage County All Kids Program at (630)-782-7400.
If you have any questions please call the Health Services Office at (630)-617-2438.

We are excited to host a St. Baldrick's event this year at York. The St. Baldrick's Foundation helps to support research for childhood cancer. We have staff and students ready to make this event memorable and successful for our school community. Since this is our 1st year holding our event, we have set our fundraising goal at $5000. But we are very hopeful that we will be able to exceed that goal. Our own Mr. Doherty has laid out a challenge of $15,000 to shave his head. I believe those locks are worth every penny! Please take a minute to visit our page and consider donating for this worthy cause! Our event will coincide with a spring pep rally on where we will be shaving heads of our top money winners and hopefully Mr. Doherty himself! I have faith in our community to come out strong for an amazing cause! If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Joe O'Malley at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Drew McGuire at email@example.com.
Thank you for your consideration!
