IN THE LOOP
In The Loop (ITL) is our school’s weekly electronic (email) newsletter. Families who have provided the school with an email address will receive In the Loop messages. These emails are sent from "St. Joseph School, York – In the Loop". Families are responsible for notifying the school office, if they have a change of email at any time.
To submit an item for consideration, email the editor at InTheLoop@sjy.org.
All items must be emailed by 3pm on Thursday and your submission will be included in the following week, unless otherwise noted. ITL is emailed on Thursdays.
Send items in a Word attachment (all items will be converted to a PDF) with a contact name, email and phone number for reference. Each item will be treated as an article on a page and not necessarily full pages. If you are sending a flyer, it will typically be treated as a full page.
All items require the approval of the School Principal. Necessary editing will be at the discretion of the school.

ONE CALL NOW AND WGAL-8 TV
