Dismissal on the First Day of School

Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 21st, is the first day of our new school year! We can’t wait to see all the smiling faces. Due to the large number of students who are assigned as walkers to our building, we ask that you fill out the yellow or pink form you received in the mail telling us how your children will get home tomorrow afternoon. All students are either walkers or bus riders in our system. If you plan to pick them up, we will need to know in writing.

You can find details on our arrival and dismissal procedures on the purple letter included in the mailing. Additionally, you can send in the home safe form or email jennifer.rohrer@pennmanor.net to let us know which mode of transportation your child will be utilizing tomorrow.

If after tomorrow you plan to use a different way home, please email the office or send a note with your child.

PM Food Services & Meal Assistance

School is right around the corner. It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cnp/fr-032019

 Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized.  We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application.  Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students.  Please contact Krista Cox for more details.  All information is confidential.  Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program.
