Positive Covid Cases Reported at Central Manor

Penn Manor School District has become aware of members of our school community who have tested positive for COVID-19. Below is a message from Superintendent Dr. Mike Leichliter with more information.

January 20, 2021

Dear Penn Manor Family:

    We have recently learned that members of the school community at Central Manor Elementary have tested positive for COVID-19. The individuals will not be in school until they have recovered, and all individuals considered to have had close contact with this person in the school setting have been notified.

    We are not making any instructional changes at Central Manor at this time.

    As a result of the positive cases, Penn Manor has taken the following actions:

  • Contacted the PA Department of Health for further guidance
  • Cleaned and disinfected locations visited by the individual who tested positive
  • Identified individuals who had close contact with the infected individuals and communicated directly with them on their next steps, which could include a 14-day quarantine.

    Please note that personal information about individuals who test positive is confidential to protect patient privacy. We are sending our best wishes to these members of our school community.

    As a reminder, please keep your child home from school if he or she is feeling ill for any reason. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are cough, fever, loss of taste and shortness of breath. Muscle aches, sore throat and fatigue also are common. If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, please consult with your family medical provider immediately.

 For additional information, including an updated count of cases at all Penn Manor schools, visit Penn Manor’s COVID-19 Information, Resources & Updates page. Most cases we report to the public are not active cases because only those involving individuals who were physically in the school setting during the infectious period of their illness are considered “active,” according to the PA Departments of Education and Health.

    Please continue to practice social distancing, wash hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces and wear a mask in public, including in school. We face this challenging situation together, and we are grateful for your continued support of our school district.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Leichliter, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

All Penn Manor schools shifting to remote learning for Wednesday, December 16

Due to a number of new COVID-19 cases reported at several Penn Manor schools, all Penn Manor schools will shift to full remote learning for Wednesday, December 16, as recommended by the PA Department of Education guidance. We will announce the status of our schools for Thursday, December 17, at a later time due to the predicted weather.

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 on Wednesday.

We encourage parents and staff to monitor the district website for updates regarding the weather and school schedules. All families and faculty will receive a follow-up email from building principals 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 your building’s school nurse 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.
