The next regular meeting of the BOARD OF SCHOOL DIRECTORS will be held Monday, June 21, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
Please read this important message from the Penn Manor school board president and superintendent regarding expectations for in-person instruction next school year.
The Penn Manor Board of School Directors appreciates the cooperation of staff, students and families in complying with the district’s health and safety plan this school year. Your efforts helped keep Penn Manor schools open and allowed us to continue offering in-person instruction.
As we look forward to next school year, we want to update the community on our expectations regarding how our schools will operate in 2021-2022.
The Acting Secretary of the Department of Health has announced that the state face mask order will expire on June 28 or when 70 percent of Pennsylvania adults are fully vaccinated, whichever happens first. The announcement strongly suggests that COVID-mitigation measures imposed on public schools this past year may be drawing to a close.
With the face mask order soon to expire and the attestation order no longer in effect, the Penn Manor school board and administration are adopting the following expectations about the 2021-2022 school year.
- Our schools will be open for in-person instruction five (5) days a week.
- Our staff and students will not be required to wear face masks while at school.
- Our staff and students will not be required to be vaccinated in order to work at or attend our schools.
- Our staff and students who wish to wear face masks as a mitigation measure will be permitted to do so – but that will be their personal choice.
We will keep the community updated regarding the expectations listed above as the new school year approaches, but at this point, we are looking forward to a more “normal” year in 2021-2022.
Thanks again to our students, staff and families for their cooperation during a very challenging school year. We sincerely hope you enjoy your summer break.
Just a reminder that the last day of kindergarten is tomorrow, Thursday, June 3rd.
Our last day of school for grades 1 – 6 is Friday, June 4th and is a shortened day. Children come at the regular time, but are dismissed at 11:30 AM. We do NOT serve breakfast or lunch on our last day of school. This is a very important detail so you can plan the perfect kick off to your summer vacation.
On Thursday, June 3rd, from 2:00-2:30, all seniors who attended Martic Elementary School are invited to visit Martic wearing their cap and gown. It is such an inspiration to our elementary students to see the result of working hard all through school. If you know someone who attended Martic Elementary and is graduating this year, please pass along this information. If they can RSVP to let us know they will be coming, that would give us an idea of how many to expect; however, it is not a requirement. We are looking forward to seeing all our Martic graduates so we can help to celebrate your accomplishment. Graduates will gather on the front porch. Please bring a mask with you.
All Penn Manor schools will be closed Monday, May 31, in observance of Memorial Day. Classes will resume on Tuesday, June 1.
On June 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, students in grades 1 – 6 will be turning in their laptops to our technology department. This includes their bags, chargers, and any other accessories that were issued with the computer.
Please help your student(s) collect all of these items to be returned during the last week of school. Students are responsible for removing self applied stickers before submitting. Thank you.
