Covid cases at Eshleman, Conestoga, Hambright, and Pequea Elementary

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.

February 16, 2021

Dear Penn Manor Family:

    We have recently learned that members of the school communities at Conestoga, Hambright, Eshleman and Pequea Elementary Schools have tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals will not be in school until they have recovered, and all individuals considered to have had close contact with them in the school setting have been notified.

    We are not making any instructional changes at these schools at this time.

    As a result of the positive cases, Penn Manor has 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 persons and communicated directly with them on their next steps, which could include a 14-day quarantine.

    Please note that personal information about the individuals who tested positive 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 or 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.

For additional information, including an updated count of cases at all Penn Manor schools, visit Penn Manor’s COVID-19 Information, Resources & Updates page. Most cases we report to the public are not active cases. Only those cases involving individuals physically in the school setting during the infectious period of their illness are considered “active,” according to the PA Departments of Education and Health.

    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.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Leichliter, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
