For purposes of security, safety, and convenience, we have installed keypad garage access for parents coming to the school to collect their children from after school activities (meetings, sports, tutoring, community etc.)

How to access garage:

The keypad is situated on the laneway podium at the entrance of the garage.
Use first 5 digits of your child’s student ID code (not the 0 at the end) followed by B.

This keypad activation is scheduled daily from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM and for select events as needed (the upcoming Middle School Games Night for example).

After parking, do not walk on the ramp, but instead use the pedestrian entrance adjacent to the garage door. This will lead you out to the laneway sidewalk so you can access the school the usual way through the front door.

We’d like to remind you that parking is limited with no guarantee of a spot, and ask that you respectfully use the parking only for The York School business.

Facility Management


Please make sure to check The York School’s full school calendar regularly for updates, locations and times.
