2018-19 School Year Information

The West York Area School District 2018-19 School Calendar was approved by the Board of Directors at the February 20, 2018 Board meeting. This calendar, shared with the District and the general public, reflected a transition day to the 2018-19 school year to give students the opportunity to "soft start" the year in a less stressful environment. 

 

-  August 22nd is the start date for all students in Kindergarten through 6th grade, ALL 9th-grade students, and ONLY 7th and 8th graders who are new to the WYASD.

 

-  August 23rd all students, Kindergarten through 12th grade, are to report to school.

 

On the transition day, August 22, the Middle School will provide our 6th graders with a full day to team-build and learn about the changes in schedule and structure.  Teachers will welcome 7th and 8th graders new to the District and help students acquire a sense of direction in the building.  The day will also cover scheduling and some of the middle school culture with the intent to appropriately facilitate an emotionally safe and equally accessible environment for all students.

Our 9th graders will experience the Link Crew Transition Program which is exclusive to high school freshmen. This program will offer the opportunity for freshmen to connect with student leaders, build an internal community within the class, and kick-off their high school experience feeling safe and secure amongst their peers.
