Community Input Requested for Full, In-Person Instruction

Penn Manor School District is seeking input from the community to help develop a recommendation for the Board of School Directors to consider during its public meeting on Monday, September 21. The administration is considering a possible recommendation to have all students (K-12) physically return to school five days a week instead of continuing with the current Blended Learning schedule. If this were to occur, Penn Manor would continue to follow the health and safety precautions now in place. However, with all students physically in school, there would be limitations on social distancing in classrooms and more students on buses, in hallways and in cafeterias. Please provide your input by completing this survey by 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 15. https://forms.gle/fAdfmy72nH5sLDg97. We appreciate your valuable feedback. 

Welcome to Manor Middle Virtual Back to School Night

The faculty members at Manor Middle have created individual videos to provide parents with an overview of classes at Manor Middle School and expectations for the school year.  If you want to schedule a virtual meeting with a teacher, please email the teacher directly to schedule a follow-up appointment.  Teacher email addresses can be found on the classroom link found later in this email.  We are currently holding all of our parent conferences virtually using Google Meet.  If you have additional questions, please contact Dr. Keddie at scott.keddie@pennmanor.net Please click the link below to access the teachers’ email addresses and videos.

Update on Attendance and Schedule for Week 2

What a great start we had to the school year. Students are doing an excellent job following the health protocols and working hard in this new situation.

Thank you for all of your efforts in getting the school year started.
Questions have been raised about attendance requirements and process for the days that students are not in school.  Because the PDE guidelines call for students to be engaged and completing assignments daily, we are requiring students to log into the teachers’ Google Classroom by 8:30 a.m. and then into the remainder of their classes throughout the day.  Students also need to complete the daily assignment and submit it within two days.  
While we desire for students to follow the structured day that we have while in school, we do know that some students will need to be afforded some flexibility.  This may be because of a family’s situation and not able to work during the class time or because some will complete the assignment before the class time is over and want to move on to the next assignment. 
For these reasons, students must login by 8:30 a.m. and then may log into their classes at any time throughout the day.  Assignments do need to be submitted within two days. 
As with other things this year, the attendance process is fluid so we appreciate your flexibility and willingness to adapt.

Week 2 Schedule-

Group A- Tuesday and Wednesday in person

Group B- Thursday and Friday in person

Important Information from our Nurse

September 2, 2020

Medication Drop Off

In an effort to reduce the number of people in the building and comply with state regulations for social distancing we are asking if your child takes medication at school that you would schedule a time with your school nurse to drop off medication prior to the start of the school year.  We request that you avoid coming to the school during student drop off and pick up times.  Also, when dropping off medication, please limit to 1 person entering the building.  If you are unable to come alone, please contact the school nurse prior to your arrival so arrangements can be made.  School Nurse Contact information can be found here: School Nurse Contact Information
