Parents and Families,

York Prep has been in consultation with the Department of Transportation, the Police Departments, and Traffic Engineers looking for ways to improve traffic flow on York Prep's campus. With the increase in housing construction along Eastview Road, car traffic has increased.

Based on the recommendations of the traffic study and local experts, York Prep will begin a new traffic procedure at the Elementary, Middle, Student Union, and High School Building beginning Monday, February 14, 2022. We appreciate your patience and support as we iron out the kinks of this new process.
