Peanut Butter Safety Recall

Dear Penn Manor Families,

On May 24, Penn Manor School District’s food supplier, Feeser’s Food Distributors, notified the district that Jif peanut butter products included in a voluntary recall were among several food shipments sent to our schools. Penn Manor has taken steps to identify and destroy all products associated with the recall; however, some of the peanut butter was served at our cafeterias over the past several weeks, prior to the recall being issued on May 20. Affected schools include Manor and Marticville Middle Schools and Letort, Martic and Central Manor Elementary Schools.

The recalled peanut butter, which was served in dipping cups, may be linked to a salmonella outbreak across 12 states. Symptoms of salmonella infection may include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, nausea, or vomiting. If your child experiences these symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this situation, please contact Courtney Kolp, Penn Manor Director of Food Services, at or (717) 872-9500 ext. 1829.

Calling all seniors ~ Cap and gown walk…

On Tuesday, May 31st at 1:30 PM, all seniors who attended Letort Elementary School are invited to visit Letort wearing their cap and gown.  It is such an inspiration to our elementary students to see the result of working hard all through school.  If you know someone who attended Letort Elementary and is graduating this year, please pass along this information.  If they can RSVP to let us know they will be coming, that would give us an idea of how many to expect; however, it is not a requirement.  Graduates can call the Letort office at 717-872-9530 or email Dr. McPherson at We are looking forward to seeing all our Letort graduates so we can help to celebrate your accomplishment. Graduates will gather in the front of the building.
