As Winter Weather Approaches...

As we approach the winter season, we want to remind parents/guardians of the procedures Penn Manor will follow in announcing changes to our school schedules caused by inclement weather.

School closings and delays will be posted on the district website and X (Twitter) feed and shared with Lancaster Newspapers and local radio and television stations as early as 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.

Snow days: There are four weather makeup days built into the 2023-2024 district calendar, and if schools need to close because of inclement weather, school will be in session on these days. Once the weather makeup days have been exhausted, students may have virtual days or days will be added to the end of the school year in the event of additional school closings.

Sapphire notifications: 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.

In an effort to provide a safe and secure educational setting for our students, all Penn Manor school buildings will begin to ask guests to provide identification when entering buildings for meetings or to pick up a student.  

We appreciate your flexibility and support with this process.
