This is being done to avoid the high traffic volume times around York HS. Additionally, we will restrict construction traffic during Wednesday's “late start” days.

Earlier today, Governor Pritzker issued an Executive Order that requires that masks be worn indoors by all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to P-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Exemptions are allowed for students with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
