Penn Manor formally agrees to updated PA health, safety standards

Penn Manor School District has formally agreed to comply with updated health and safety standards for schools implemented by state officials in November due to increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases across Pennsylvania.

Penn Manor superintendent Mike Leichliter and school board president Herk Rintz signed an attestation form stipulating that the district will comply with the following updated orders:

The new orders were implemented because Lancaster County is currently experiencing a “substantial” level of COVID-19 infections in the community, defined as 100 or more cases per 100,000 population for more than two consecutive weeks or a positivity rate of 10 percent or greater.

If a school district in the “substantial” category chooses to continue to offer full or partial in-person learning to its students, it is required to submit a signed attestation form to the state agreeing to the steps outlined in the two state orders.

A copy of Penn Manor’s attestation form is available here.

If you have any questions regarding this issue, please contact the superintendent’s office at (717) 872-9500, ext. 2223.
