These buses only stop at the locations listed on the schedule. Students are expected to find their own way home from the listed stops.
Determining your Stop:
York Suburban High School is pleased to welcome college education majors pursuing their required field experience hours into our classrooms. Students will be exposed to a variety of instructional techniques and curriculum objectives even in a short period of time. However, to ensure the safety and security of our students as well as ensuring the college student has a meaningful experience, students must follow the following procedures:
- Request permission to complete observation hours at York Suburban High School. The request must be made in writing (e-mail is permitted) to Brian Ellis, High School Principal. (firstname.lastname@example.org). The request must include the following:
- The student name
- The associated college course
- The number of hours needed
- The specific dates and times when the student will be available
- The content area the student wishes to observe
- Stated confirmation that the student has obtained the three required clearances
Requests must be received at least two weeks in advance of any observation. Furthermore, the high school limits the number of observers per content area, so students should make arrangements as soon as possible.
- This information will be forwarded to content area teachers who will make arrangements for observation times directly with the student.
- On the first day of the observation the student must come immediately to the main office. The student is required to provide proof that the student is enrolled in the class (a transcript or letter from the professor is appropriate), as well as copies of the student's clearances (State Police, Public Welfare Child Abuse, and FBI Criminal History). The documents will be kept on file in the main office.
- On each day of observation, the student must check in at the main office and register as a visitor. Students are expected to be dressed professionally and are also expected to conduct themselves professionally throughout the process. Failure to do so may result in observation privileges being revoked.
It is a privilege to be able to support future educators, just as we believe it is a privilege for future educators to observe in our high school. We appreciate everyone's cooperation in following these procedures so that observations can be both meaningful for the student but also not represent a burden on our teaching staff and students.
Online Safety Education:
Students will receive information about registering for the online safety course (offered through the district free of charge) during course selection process prior to their Sophomore year.
The Online Safety Course is an elective course and not a graduation requirement.

High school provides many challenges for your child. Please talk to your child to see how s/he is coping. Communication is a powerful tool for parents and school staff to support the children as they deal with the demands of high school.
In an effort to support parental decisions, if you decide to send your child to school, I will encourage him/her to remain in school - unless there are observable or measurable signs of illness.
Attention: Parents of 11th grade students
All 11th grade students are required by the state to have a current Physical Exam (PE) form on file with their school nurse (10th grade Physical Exam reports are acceptable).

This immunization is typically given at the 16 year old physical. Please contact your child's doctor to see if they already received the shot or to schedule an appointment for them to receive the shot it.
Please provide the school with a copy of your child’s immunization record from the doctor’s office confirming they have had this immunization before the end of school their junior year if possible.
