Communication Update

IMPORTANT CHANGE: Unfortunately, due to uncontrollable changes with the text messaging system, Remind, we will no longer be using this system.  We are exploring and learning the communication features of our Sapphire (student portal) system. More to come on this. Please note: Some teachers may still be able to use this system as they are using it on a smaller scale.

Spring Fling Update

Update from Penn Manor High School

Due to the forecast of strong thunderstorms, wind and hail tomorrow afternoon and evening, we will need to cancel Spring Fling.  The construction project at the high school will not allow for the event to be moved indoors.  

Spring Fling at Comet Field

From Penn Manor High School:

Penn Manor’s annual Spring Fling will be held this Friday, May 3rd from 3:30-9:00 PM at Comet Field! Spring Fling is a great opportunity to interact and support your community, while having a blast with the inflatables, watching or participating in the hot dog eating contest, watching the fireworks, and so much more! Bracelets for endless inflatables will be sold for $15 at the event. We hope to see you there! 

Dress & Attendance Reminders

We want to share with you a few “end of the year” friendly reminders. As always, we thank you for your support!

School Dress

*As the weather gets warmer, please be sure that your child is wearing school appropriate clothing.  The following is from our school handbook:

Shorts should be long enough to reach fingertips when students are standing up straight.  Spaghetti strap shirts and muscle shirts will not be permitted.

We encourage flip-flops or sandal-like shoes to have a backing on the heel. Loose flip-flops are a safety hazard as students walk up and down stairs.


*Our school office must have an excuse slip for your child’s absence within three days of the day missed.  After three days, the absence becomes marked as unlawful in our school system. Excessive days absent, including excessive unlawful days may result in a “School Attendance Improvement Plan” meeting.  Educational trips must get approval in advance.  Please see our blog to download a pre-approved trip form or have your child request a copy from the office.

Spirit Day for Friday 3/29

Central Manor is encouraging all students and staff to “CLASH” tomorrow! As a special end of the month “March Gladness” event, we are encouraging students to wear mismatched clothes, perhaps different color socks, and other unique clothing items. Feel free to use your creativity, but as always, please make sure your “CLASH” remains school appropriate in that your child can safely maneuver throughout his/her school day. If your child has Physical Education on Friday – please make sure he/she wears sneakers.

As always, our school spirit days are optional. If your child chooses to participate, we hope to see some fashion disasters tomorrow!
