Free meals now offered for all Penn Manor students

September 16, 2020

All Penn Manor students are now eligible to receive free breakfasts and lunches through the end of the 2020 calendar year under a school meals program that was recently extended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Beginning September 17, Penn Manor students can receive the standard breakfast or lunch offered at any of our schools at no charge. This applies to students enrolled in both the Blended Learning and Penn Manor Virtual School programs. 

Families will be charged for snack items and other extras not included in the regular daily breakfast and lunch menu.

All students will be offered meals automatically when they are physically in school. On the days they are not in school, meals must be ordered in advance to be sent home with students or picked up. Penn Manor Virtual School students also are eligible for meals whenever school is in session.

Meals must be ordered in advance each week using this order form.

Group A students will receive their meals to take home at the end of the day on Tuesday for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Group B students will receive meals to take home at the end of the day on Friday for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Meals for Penn Manor Virtual School students must be picked up at one of the middle schools from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Mondays.

At this time, it is not clear if the free meals program will be extended beyond December 31, 2020. Because of that, families that may qualify for the free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch program should fill out an application if they wish to continue to receive free or reduced-price meals in 2021.

For additional information, please contact the food services department at 717-872-9500, ext. 2228.

Attendance on Remote Learning Days – Update

Because the PDE guidelines call for students to be engaged and completing assignments daily, Penn Manor is requiring students to log into the period 1 teachers’ Google Classroom by 8:30 a.m. and then into the remainder of their classes throughout the day.  Students also need to complete the daily assignment and submit it within two days.  

While we desire for students to follow the structured day that we have while in school, we do know that some students will need to be afforded some flexibility.  This may be because of a family’s situation and not able to work during the class time or because some will complete the assignment before the class time is over and want to move on to the next assignment. 

For these reasons, students must login by 8:30 a.m. and then may log into their periods 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 classes at any time throughout the day.  Assignments do need to be submitted within two days. 

As with other things this year, the attendance process is fluid so we appreciate your flexibility and willingness to adapt. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Smith if you have any questions.
