Get the Lowdown with Dr. Lowe

York Academy Families:


Last week, we celebrated the Class of 2024! Thirty-one students graduated, and their futures are bright and full of possibilities. I'm very proud of each one of them. Check out these pictures from the York Dispatch. It was a joyful night!

As a reminder, tomorrow (Thursday, May 30) is the last day of school for students. It's also an early dismissal day for both buildings at 12:30 p.m. If you pick up your children, please make sure to have a plan in place to do so promptly at 12:30 p.m.


Tomorrow is also a free Dress Down Day for all students and staff. Make sure to follow the Dress Down Day guidelines. There is no cost to participate.

In addition, Report Cards for all students will be posted electronically to Sapphire on Friday.

Many thanks to each of you for supporting your children and the York Academy. I hope you have a fantastic summer, and I look forward to seeing you and your children in August!
