Student Safety & Wellness

Student and staff safety is a top priority for the York County School Division. We believe that safety and security, student wellness, and positive relationships between and among staff, students, and families are all important components of student success. For student wellness, administrators, school nurses, and physical education teachers work with central office staff to promote good nutrition and physical activity. Wellness programs are reviewed annually. Input regarding school wellness may be provided to the Associate Director of Student Services.

In addition to comprehensive crisis management plans, the division provides a variety of programs, activities and resources on topics such as violence prevention, alcohol and other drug prevention, internet safety, concussion awareness, and student behavioral, social, and emotional support.
