AM Car Rider Door

If you are transporting your child to school each morning, the doors will open at 8:50 AM. This is a CHANGE from last year.

If your child would like to have breakfast and is a car rider, Mrs. Straub will open the doors at 8:45 AM for those students ONLY. If your child is not eating breakfast, they MUST remain in the car until 8:50.

Also, please make sure your child exits the car at the sidewalk by the car rider door. We want to ensure the safety of all our Letort students.

We appreciate your understanding as we make this change.

School closing notification for the 2021-2022 school year

As we enter the winter season, we want to remind parents/guardians of the procedures Penn Manor will follow in announcing changes to our school schedule.

School closings and delays will be posted on the district website and Twitter feed and reported on LNP and local radio and television stations before 6 a.m., whenever possible. You can also call the inclement weather hotline at (717) 872-9500, ext. 2333, to check on the status of Penn Manor schools.

When inclement weather conditions develop during the day, resulting in an early closing, parents will be notified via automated phone call. Phone calls will NOT be made for closings/delays announced before the school day begins.

During an early dismissal for inclement weather, high school and middle school students will generally be dismissed first, followed by elementary students. 

During two-hour delays with modified kindergarten, all school-related functions, including transportation, will begin two hours later than normal.

Modified kindergarten schedule: AM Kindergarten will start at 11 a.m. and run until 12:45 p.m. PM Kindergarten will run from 1:45 p.m. until the regular dismissal time.

Penn Manor plans to use built-in snow days prior to using flexible instructional days (also known as “cyber snow days”) when school buildings are closed due to inclement weather. On flexible instructional days, students will receive instruction remotely.

Penn Manor uses the Sapphire phone and text communications service for rapid notifications. The system uses contact information from the Sapphire student information system. To assure you are contacted, please make sure your email address and phone information are updated in your Sapphire Community Portal account. For instructions, please see this guide.

Happy Holidays!

From our families to yours, we would like to extend warm holiday wishes! Enjoy the break and we look forward to seeing our Letort students’ smiling faces on Monday, January 2022.

The Letort Halls were Filled with Music

This morning, Letort hosted a sing along to celebrate the holiday season. Our wonderful music teacher, Mr. Deubler, faciliated the school-wide sing along with the help of Jason Bencak for Mrs. Johnson’s sixth grade class. It was fantastic to hear the students singing along to their favorite holiday songs. Below are just some of the photos and videos from this special event.

Lunch and Learn Returns to Penn Manor

Penn Manor identifies the value in hosting children and families to school events prior to their enrollment in their first day of kindergarten. This allows all of our students to feel comfortable in school environments prior to the first day of school. We are delighted to announce the return of our early childhood Lunch and Learn program. All preschool children, age 3- Pre-K and their parent/guardian, are invited to attend the Lunch and Learn events scheduled at our seven elementary schools.

This once a month event will consist of story time, craft, lunch and a special visit to the library to check out books that will be returned the following month.  Lunch and Learn events are hosted in the middle day and every family in attendance is the recipient of the book we are featuring that month. Please take a look at the schedule attached for these lunch and learn events around district. We hope you consider attending.

Remember, siblings are welcome and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
