Traffic Guidelines: We are continuing to monitor the traffic flow and make adjustments as we can and will continue to get better as we go along. Please remember the following guidelines for pick-up and drop-off: 1) Remember to talk to your children about being ready to exit the car promptly as well as to be ready to get in the car quickly and safely. Long good-byes or disorganization at loading points can set traffic patterns back. 2) Avoid high traffic times, 7:30-7:45 and 2:30-2:45, are high traffic times and many times waiting for a little bit can make your experience quicker. 3) Please respect our neighbors on Golden Gate Ct. Parking or stopping in their yards or blocking their driveways is not permitted.
It is the goal that each student at York Preparatory Academy possess the knowledge, skills, character, and determination necessary to excel in their chosen post-secondary pursuits and in life.
