Positive COVID cases reported at Hambright

Penn Manor School District has become aware of members of our school community who have tested positive for COVID-19. Below is a message from Superintendent Dr. Mike Leichliter with more information:

January 7, 2020

Dear Penn Manor Family:

We have recently learned that members of the Hambright Elementary School community tested positive for COVID-19. The individuals will not be in school until they have recovered, and all individuals considered to have had close contact within the school setting have been notified.

We are not closing the school at this time.

As a result of the positive cases, we have taken the following actions:

  • Contacted the PA Department of Health for further guidance
  • Cleaned and disinfected locations visited by the individuals who tested positive
  • Identified individuals who had close contact with the infected individuals and communicated directly with them on their next steps, which could include a 14-day quarantine.

Please note that personal information about the COVID-positive individuals, including names, is confidential to protect patient privacy. We are sending our best wishes to these members of our school community.

As a reminder, please keep your child home from school if he/she is feeling ill for any reason. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are cough, fever, loss of taste and shortness of breath. Muscle aches, sore throat and fatigue also are common. If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, please consult with your family medical provider immediately.

Please continue to practice social distancing, wash hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces and wear a mask in public, including in school.

We face this challenging situation together, and we are grateful for your continued support of our school district.
