District considers commencement changes

Due to the inordinately high number of weather-related school cancellations this year, Penn Manor School District is considering the following options for commencement for the Class of 2014:

  •  Hold the ceremony on June 3, 2014, on the campus of F&M College as previously approved by the Penn Manor Board of School Directors and announced to families.
  •  Hold the ceremony at a later date during the first week of June on the campus of Penn Manor High School. Under this scenario, it is possible that commencement would be held on Saturday, June 7.

We are doing everything in our power to hold commencement in the first week of June.  We will review all options at the end of February, when we have a better idea of where we stand regarding any future weather-related delays and cancellations.

Penn Manor will consult with Hempfield School District before making a final decision on whether to change the June 3 date currently approved for graduation and shared with Hempfield.
