Input sought from parents on school reopening for 2020-2021

Penn Manor School District plans to reopen our schools for the 2020-2021 school year, and it’s important that families feel comfortable about sending their children back to school.

Current guidance from the Pennsylvania Departments of Education and Health indicates that we will have to implement social distancing, which will impact the number of students on buses, maximum class sizes, and movement throughout our school buildings.

We would like your input as we develop our programs and the district’s health and safety plan, which is required before we can reopen. Please fill out this survey by June 26, 2020. Thank you for your input!

MU/PMSD Buddy Program – Update & Feedback

Dear Penn Manor Families,

Thank you for your participation in our Penn Manor/Millersville University Buddy Program.  Millersville students & Penn Manor families have expressed interest in continuing this program over the summer.  GREAT NEWS!  While there will not be the traditional, school year academics, our Millersville buddies are happy to continue with specific areas of educational need.  For example: multiplication tables, spelling words, reading/writing, even telling time, are skills we can continue to work on throughout the summer.  In lieu of the academic piece during the school year, are there any additional subjects, hobbies, and/or extracurriculars that you would like the Buddies to (remotely) meet about?  For example: maybe a specific sport, type of art, music, video games, etc.

Please complete the form HERE to give us valuable insight as we grow the program in the future and to help us pair buddies who are wishing to continue throughout the summer.

Did you see…this program was featured in the May 20th edition of the Merchandiser/Advertiser!  The article was titled, “MU Supports PM’s Transition to Online Learning.”  Our Millersville students strive to share compassion and contribute to public mission while we all navigate these unchartered times.  We hope that your child was able to benefit from this virtual relationship.

We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Allison, Lori, and Nazli
