Manor Middle School shifting to online learning March 4 and 5

Penn Manor is shifting to online learning for all Manor Middle School students, effective Thursday, March 4, and continuing through Friday, March 5. The building will be closed from Thursday, March 4 through Sunday, March 7. 

No schedule changes are planned for any other Penn Manor schools.

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. 

On Thursday, students and faculty will follow our Full Remote Schedule that can be found here. Classes will begin at 7:30 a.m. 

On Friday, they will follow an early dismissal schedule, which can be found here

Regular, in-person classes for students will resume on Monday, March 8, unless the school district learns of additional information that would require an extension of the closure to assure the safety of the school 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 Dana Edwards 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, email the school nurse at gretchen.ayres@pennmanor.net, 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.
