Welcome Letter from Principal Caufman

August 2016

Dear Central York Student and Family:

Welcome to the start of the 2016-2017 school year.  We hope your summer was enjoyable and relaxing.  We are very excited and looking forward to welcoming our students and families back to another outstanding year beginning on Wednesday, August 24.

We are writing to share with you several important items of interest regarding the upcoming school year.

  • Schedules: On August 12, students will be able to view their schedules online via Skyward.  To access Skyward, students should visit our district website, and click on the High School website. Then click on the “Skyward Student Access Login” icon located in the middle of the page.  If students do not have computer or internet access, we will provide a copy of their schedule during CLC period on the first day of school.
  • Central Learning Coach (CLC): All students will be assigned a CLC whose classroom they will report to after first period each school day.  CLC lists will be posted in several locations throughout the building during the first week of school to assist students.
  • New Student/9th Grade Orientation: Our New Student/9th Grade Orientation is scheduled for Tuesday, August 16, from 6 to 8 pm.  At this orientation you will be able to use a school map and your schedule to find your classrooms, library (The HUB), gym, offices (guidance, main, career center), and most importantly, the cafeteria!
  • Fall Open House: Our Fall Open House is scheduled for Thursday, September 8, from 6 to 8 pm. This will be an excellent opportunity to meet with your child’s first semester teachers.
  • Administrative Team: Your Administrative Team for the 2016-2017 school year is as follows:
  • Mr. Jeffrey Hamme– 9th Grade Asst. Principal
  • Mr. Gregory Potteiger – 10th Grade Asst. Principal & 12th Grade A-K
  • Mr. Gerald Eisner – 11th Grade Asst. Principal & 12th Grade L-Z
  • Dr. David Czarnecki – Associate Principal
  • Mr. Ryan Caufman - Principal
  • Calendars & Student Handbooks: Students will not receive a printed copy of the 2016-2017 District Calendar this year.  The PDF version is available online now, and may be accessed by visiting and clicking on the “Parents and Family” and “Calendar 2016-2017.”  Student Handbooks will not be printed and distributed this year.  They are also available online and may be accessed in the same location under “Parents and Family.”  A signature sheet will be distributed to all parents/guardians at the start of school and will need to be signed and returned to your child’s school.  The signature sheet will serve as a record that you and your child have reviewed the current Student Handbook.
  • Security Procedure: Central York School District considers the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff to be of the utmost importance.  In a continued effort to proactively safeguard our students, faculty and staff, we will continue to use our management system called School Gate Guardian.  Central York School District reminds all parents/visitors to produce a valid photo ID before gaining admittance to a district school or building.

Once again, thank you for your continued support as we strive to always make it


Best wishes,

Ryan J. Caufman
