Immunization Requirements

Posted on: June 15th, 2018

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has established school immunization requirements for all students.  The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in PA are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.  A child must have the required medically-appropriate vaccines or a plan to complete those vaccines or risk exclusion from school.

Children in grades 7-12 need the following immunizations for attendance:

  • 4 doses of tetanus * (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of diphtheria* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of acellular pertussis* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose given)
  • 2 doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (usually given as MMR)
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity
  • 2 doses meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)
  • 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age; a 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th
  • If the dose was given at 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required.
  • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap) – age 11 or older

*   Usually given as DTaP or DTP or DT or Td

If you submitted doctor’s documentation of the administration of these vaccines previously to the York Catholic nurse, you do not need to repeat this step unless an additional booster or immunization is needed or has been given in the past year.  (Students entering grades 10, 11, & 12 – please note the dose requirements for the MCV vaccine.)  All new students must submit doctor’s documentation of the dates the above doses were administered to the York Catholic nurse by August 1, 2018.  If any of the required immunizations will not be given by August 1, please click here for the PLAN form to detail the dates the immunizations are scheduled to be given.

Under Pennsylvania state law, students without the required immunizations or a plan with scheduled dates of administration on file, cannot be admitted to school.

If you have any questions, please contact Diane Lupinetti, York Catholic nurse, at 717-846-8871 x221 or dlupinetti@yorkcatholic.org or consult the PA Department of Health website at www.dontwaitvaccinate.pa.gov.

Fall Sports

Posted on: May 15th, 2018
Fall Practices Open

Senior High football heat acclimation practice begins August 6 with all other Fall sports teams beginning practice on Monday, August 13.  For exact practice times, contact the head coach or Mr. Bankos at kbankos@yorkcatholic.org or 717-846-8871 x214.

 

No Practice Until Paperwork is on File

Students wishing to participate in athletics during the 2018-2019 school year must submit the following paperwork online:

  • PIAA Physical Form
  • Athlete & Parent Agreement
  • ImPACT Test

Students wishing to play any sport during the 2018-2019 school year MUST verify the paperwork is on file with Mr. Hayek no later than Wednesday, August 1, at 3 PM; no exceptions.

NEW!!  PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE

The York Catholic Athletic Department now hosts their Athletic Forms online with Arbiter Athlete, powered by PlanetHS, a software company committed to keeping student(s) safe.  This digital platform will allow parents and athletes to complete and access most athletic forms (physicals, agreements, etc.) via computer, tablet, or mobile phone.  It is HIPPA, COPPA, and FERPA compliant.

If your child did not the York Catholic Physicals Night at OSS, you will need to make an appointment with your family doctor or go to one of the Urgent Care Centers.  Be sure to complete the information online and only print 2 pages for the doctor to review and complete.

Before forms can be completed by parent and student, ArbiterAthlete accounts must be set-up by each athlete and his or her parent.  Please click here for the instructions on how to set-up an account. Forms will be valid for the entire 2018-2019 school year.

Failure to complete the online paperwork by the deadline will mean the student will not be permitted to practice the first day of the season.  For some sports, this could mean the student will not make the team.  Contact Mr. Hayek at bhayek@yorkcatholic.org or 717-846-8871 x244 if you have any questions and to be sure you have a valid ImPACT Test on file.  If you need technical assistance with Arbiter Athlete/PlanetHS, email schoolsupport@planeths.com.

 

Sports Program Publication                                        

The YC Athletic Association (YCAA) is coordinating the sports program publication, which will be sold during football games, other sports’ home games, and through the YC Athletic Office. Each year, parents of seniors are offered to place a discounted ¼-page ad in the program to honor their senior student-athlete or student-musician.  Click here for complete information and to see a sample page from last year’s program. The deadline to place an ad is Thursday, August 16.

If businesses would like to purchase an ad, please click here for rates and information.  If businesses would like to purchase a banner to advertise year-round at our football, basketball, and volleyball games, please click here for information.  Thank you for your support of the Athletic Association and our students.

 

Meet the Teams

Parents and fans are invited to raise the Irish spirit and meet the athletes who will be representing York Catholic on the court, on the course, and on the playing field this fall.  Meet the Teams Night will be held Monday, August 27, at 7 PM at the football stadium.  Come out and cheer on our teams!
