Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and friends!   
As we close the books on fiscal year 2017, we want to say "THANK YOU" to the many alumni, parents, and friends who have given thoughtfully this past year. We have had a great year because of your giving hearts!
 
Gifts offered as volunteerism, donated services/goods, and contributions to the annual fund, facilities, tuition assistance, and other projects at YC, are all greatly valued and appreciated.
 
Thank you for joining the Values Matter Annual Fund Campaign, and supporting the school and our students with your generosity. 
 
Your commitment to the pillars of a YCHS education of Faith, Mind, Heart, and Family resulted in over $880,000 in new dollars which benefitted tuition assistance, classroom revitalizations, technology, facilities, athletics, and professional development for teachers. 
 
Thank you YC community!
 
Sincerely,

Changes to PA Immunization Law for All Students
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is changing school immunization regulations beginning in August 2017.  The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in PA are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.  A child must have the required medically-appropriate vaccines or a plan to complete those vaccines or risk exclusion from school.
 
Children in grades 7-12 need the following immunizations for attendance:
  • 4 doses of tetanus * (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of diphtheria* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of acellular pertussis* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose given)
  • 2 doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (usually given as MMR)
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity
  • 2 doses meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)
    • 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age; a 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade.
    • If the dose was given at 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required.
  • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)
*   Usually given as DTaP or DTP or DT or Td
 
All students must submit a Certificate of Immunization form by August 25.  
Click here for the required Certificate of Immunization form (green and white) to complete and submit to the York Catholic nurse detailing the dates your child's immunizations were administered.  If the form is incomplete based on the state requirements above, a 2nd form (PLAN - red and white) must be completed detailing the dates the immunizations are scheduled to be given.  Click here for the PLAN form.  The completed Certificate of Immunization (and the PLAN card, if applicable) must be returned to the school nurse by

Under Pennsylvania state law, students without the Certificate of Immunization form or the PLAN form on file, cannot be admitted school.
