Dear New Families, 

It was great to meet with you last Wednesday evening, either in-person or virtually!  

York Catholic is an exceptional school and you have entrusted us to provide your child with THE BEST education possible.  We intend to do just that!  As we experienced during our Virtual Orientation, technology comes with occasional glitches.  Thank you for your patience and flexibility with our technical difficulties during the virtual Zoom meeting.  We aim to be just as patient and flexible with our students if you choose the virtual learning option.  Please know that, if you have chosen the virtual option, we will have a member of our technology staff available to help you with whatever glitches may happen.

We want to ensure that your child's transition to York Catholic is as seamless as possible.  In order to help with this process, we have created the checklist below.  We realize the length of this communication may seem overwhelming.  Some of this information has already been shared with you from Ms. Hoffman and through our weekly Irish Eye e-newsletter.  While this information is customized for new students, please be sure to look for additional emails this week with information pertaining to all students.
