Marticville dismissing early today, shifting to remote instruction Monday

Marticville Middle School is dismissing all students at 12:20 p.m. today, Friday, March 19, due to multiple COVID-positive cases that have impacted staffing at the school. Marticville also is shifting to remote learning for Monday, March 22, for all students.

Students will be transported home today on their regular buses.

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

Regular, in-person classes for students will resume on Tuesday, March 23, 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 the principal Christine Smith 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.
