Attendance Awareness Month

September is Attendance Awareness Month!

Join us in promoting the importance of regular school attendance for all students from Preschool through 12th grade.  There are many different ways you can get involved as an individual, organization, or school. Many students miss school because they don't have simple items such as alarm clocks, uniforms, or school supplies. This year United Way of York County is getting involved to help decrease chronic absenteeism by coordinating donation drives through York County schools. With your help we can make a difference in the lives of children in York County and motivate them to attend school every day.

Below are the participating school districts and donation lists from 2017.



Central York School District 

Dallastown Area School District

Logos Academy

Red Lion Area School District

School District of the City of York
