School Items and Yearbooks

Due to the COVID-19, we will not be collecting laptops this spring. Students will bring his/her laptop to school on the first day back. Sixth grade students will bring her/his laptop to their respective middle school. Questions or concerns can be directed to: krista.cox@pennmanor.net.

If you are planning on withdrawing from the Penn Manor School District. Please contact Eshleman Elementary at 717-872-9540 or email: jennifer.rohrer@pennmanor.net. All school materials such as school laptops, textbooks, and library books should be returned before the official school withdrawal.

There is a drop off bin for library books outside of the main entrance at Eshleman Elementary. Other school items can be placed in the bin (calculators, reading anthology, etc.-please label with student name).

Unfortunately, we are still waiting on our yearbooks. We continue to check back frequently, but at this time we do not know when they will arrive. When yearbooks are received, we will communicate a distribution plan with all families.

House Score Update for the Week of May 4th

There’s still plenty of time to earn points. Don’t stop now!

  1. You may only earn points for one activity in each point category this week. 
  2. Make sure to have your parents or guardians complete the form by Saturday at midnight.

Meal Distribution-remaining May dates

Penn Manor has implemented a meal distribution plan for students that utilizes students’ morning bus stop locations. The free, bagged meals will be delivered by school buses and will include a lunch and breakfast that meet school nutritional standards.  These meals are available to any PM student.

Families will receive a lunch and breakfast for two days on Mondays and Wednesday drop-offs include meals for three days.  The following dates are distribution dates:  May 13, May 18, May 20, & May 27.  There is no distribution on May 25.

For elementary students, meals will be delivered by buses at students’ regular bus stops at times that roughly correspond with their regular school pickup times. It is a good idea to check the stops on the bus routes below, if you are just joining us, so we don’t miss you.

To insure you are able to connect with a bus, you may want to review the HS and MS bus routes below to find the scheduled stop closest to your child’s regular stop. You may want to arrive before the listed time, and wait until you are met by a bus.

Meals for high school and Marticville and Manor middle school students will be delivered each morning to their regular bus stops, but the drop-off times are not the same as their morning school pickup times.

Please see the drop-off schedules for those schools here:

HS meal drop-off schedule
Manor MS meal drop-off schedule
Marticville MS meal drop-off schedule

Buses will stop if someone is visible at each stop. A volunteer onboard each bus will assist with meal bag distribution.

Meals for students who WALK to Penn Manor High School or Eshleman Elementary School may be picked up from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on designated mornings at Eshleman Elementary School.

At all locations, a student should be present for a family member to pick up their meal bag, and family members may pick up meal bags for all members of their family who attend Penn Manor schools from a single location/stop.

This distribution plan is subject to change in response to the needs of our families/bus drivers.

Esh Teachers: We appreciate you!

The health and safety of all Penn Manor students, families, and staff is the number one priority for the Penn Manor School District during this impact of Covid-19.  Due to this unwavering commitment, we are informing all elementary families that your child’s teacher will be taking inventory of items in your child’s locker and desk. 

Upon return to our physical buildings, your child will receive his/her property if desired. If there is an essential item that your child needs prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year, please contact your building principal. 

6th grade students who are transitioning to the middle school will be given a different set of directions by the principal of his/her building.
