Penn Manor is shifting to online learning for all Hambright Elementary School students, effective Monday, December 14, and continuing through Friday, December 18.
No additional schedule changes are planned at this time for other Penn Manor schools currently offering in-person instruction.
This decision was made in response to the recommended framework from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for actions necessary following the identification of active COVID-19 cases. The individual identified in the most recent active case late Saturday night was present in multiple locations throughout the building.
All online classes will begin at 9 a.m. Students should log onto their teacher’s Google Classroom or Seesaw accounts to obtain individual classroom schedules. Students will receive live, virtual instruction throughout the school day.
Regular, in-person classes for students will resume on Monday, December 21, unless the school district learns of additional information that would require an extension of the closure to assure the safety of the Hambright community.
We encourage parents and staff to monitor the district website for updates regarding this situation. All families and faculty will receive a follow-up email from principal Mr. Howe regarding expectations for online learning.
During the closure, we expect students to act responsibly by practicing social distancing, wearing masks in public and monitoring their health. If you or a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19, please contact the school nurse at 717-872-9503, ext. 3702, so we can identify any other individuals who may have been in close contact in the school setting.
As a community, we all need to do our part to assure that in-person learning can safely resume for Penn Manor students.
