During inclement weather that would cause a school closing or delay of schedule, York Catholic will call/text/email you through our One Call Now Emergency Notification system. Other modes of notification include WSBA 910-AM, WGAL TV-8, and the YC website. Students from individual school districts are automatically excused if their district closes and does not provide transportation to YCHS. The exceptions to this are Southern and Southeastern. These students follow York Catholic's delay and closing schedule.
Text Option Requires Your Action
In preparation for the colder months ahead, we have updated our "One Call Now" Emergency Notification System. In the event our school schedule is adjusted due to weather, a phone call and an email will be sent to the contact information we have on file.
A text option is also available. If you opted-in to receive text messages last school year, you do not need to do anything additional. If you did not receive text messages last year and would like to, or you are new to our school, you must "opt-in" to receive text notification.
To do so, text the word
ALERT to the number
Do not include any words other than the word ALERT.
After doing so, you will no longer receive a phone call at that number and will only receive a text message.
If you do not want to receive text notification, you do not have to do anything. Your phone number and email address from our MMS system have automatically been entered into the One Call Now system.
