School year to start, end earlier in 2019-2020

The school year will start and end earlier in 2019-2020 to accommodate the high school construction project.

Under the 2019-2020 school calendar, approved Feb. 4 by the Penn Manor board of school directors, the first day of school for students will be Aug. 21, 2019. The opening day for staff will be Aug. 19.

The last day of school for 2019-2020 will be May 29, 2020.

The earlier end date will allow construction workers to begin demolition of sections of the existing high school earlier and extend the amount of time available for construction over the summer.
