Free School Meals During Closure (published 19/03/20)
From Monday when the school is closed those entitled to free School Meals will be able to order a lunch by completing the order form on the website before 10 am. The order form is on the parent part of the Information in the event of school closure page. If you complete the form you will be able to collect the lunch from school reception between 12 and 1. We expect in the future that the government will introduce a national voucher scheme but until then we will continue to offer this service to our community.
During these difficult and changing times, we have to prepare for a possible school closure. If York High School closes, our main communication source will be email. To prepare for this and to ensure we have a working email address for all our parents, we have sent a ‘test’ email to your main email address.
If you have received this email, there is no further action needed. If you did not receive the email, then please reply to the text sent at 13:00 with an up to date email address, your name and your son/daughters name. We will then update this on our system and you will receive all correspondence if we were to close.
Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for any further updates.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding during this challenging time.
