York Community High School will be celebrating its annual Fine Arts Week February 26-March 1. For over 30 years, Fine Arts Week has recognized the talents of York’s student musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists, singers, orators, poets and unique performance artists. In addition, several nationally and locally recognized artists and groups representing a wide variety of artistic endeavors host workshops that provide information and inspiration to the students.

This year’s Fine Arts Week community fundraising event will be held on Wednesday evening, February 28, at the new Brew Point Workshop located at 617 N York Rd @ Crestview. Modern Vices will be headlining the event, performing a live set with the Disciples of Rage and Sleeveless Jacket (both rock bands consisting of all York students). This event will be from 6pm-9pm and there will be a suggested donation of $5 at the door; all donations go toward funding for Fine Arts Week 2019.

One of the more popular attractions during Fine Arts Week is the Student Talent Show. York possesses such an eclectic mix of talent that there are four separate 50-minute segments. The Talent Show culminates with an evening Fine Arts Week Showcase open to the public on Thursday, March 1st at 7pm in York’s Merle E. Baker Auditorium. Tickets are $10, but admission is free for all District 205 students with a current student ID from York or any of the three D205 middle schools.

Please know that Elmhurst District 205 will only contact parents and staff when schools are closed or there is a late start called. In general (excluding other emergency situations), if there is NO announcement by 5:45 AM via the following methods, schools are open: phone, email and SMS text message (if you’ve signed up for this feature) in both English and Spanish; the District 205 website (when in doubt, check it out); the District 205 Facebook page - www.facebook.com/ElmhurstD205; the D205 Twitter account - www.twitter.com/ElmhurstD205. If your phone number has recently changed, please contact your child(ren)’s school so that they can update that information in PowerSchool.

Additionally, you may visit the Emergency Closing Center website - www.emergencyclosings.com (District 205 schools are listed alphabetically as DIST #205 (ELMHURST PUBLIC SCHOOLS).

We suggest downloading the Know Before You Go flyer and keeping it handy in paper form, especially during the winter months. If power is out, you may not be able to access the Emergency Closings page of the District 205 website.

In general, District 205 will not close school on a forecast, i.e., the inclement weather must be real and present. In cases where the area is hit hard by snow, it might be possible to make a call in advance (usually in the evening of the day before). Most of the time, that decision must be made early in the morning, based on conditions that have presented themselves overnight.

Temperature is only one factor. Wind chill is also taken into account. Generally, when “real feel” temperatures are -30 degrees or colder, school will be cancelled for the sake of students who ride the bus or walk to school, as frost bite can occur quickly under such extreme conditions.


When District 205 determines that weather conditions or an emergency situation warrant an Emergency Late Start Schedule, families will be notified in the same manner they would be notified in the event of a school closing. Each family will receive a phone, email or text notice (if you've opted in) from our rapid notification system. More information about the Emergency Late Start Schedule is available online.

On Emergency Late Start days, parents and staff are encouraged to monitor the District’s website for updates on the status of after-school activities. Information about York athletics would be posted on the York School webpage in the afternoon.

If an Emergency Late Start schedule is activated:

  • Classes will begin using the standard Student Late Arrival schedule
  • Buses will operate using the standard Student Late Arrival pick-up and drop-off times.
  • Parent should use the standard Student Late Arrival schedule for drop-off - 20 minutes prior to the start times below.
