A Peak Inside our School Just Before the Holiday

December 16, 2020

Dear Penn Manor Family:

    We have recently learned that we have one new positive case of COVID-19 within the Conestoga Elementary School community. The individual will not be in school until that person has recovered, and all individuals considered to have had close contact with the individual in the school setting have been notified.

    The school is not closing.

    As a result of the 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 individuals and communicated directly with them on their next steps, which could include a 14-day quarantine.

    Please note that personal information about the 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 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.

    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.

    For additional information about COVID-19, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health website or Penn Manor’s COVID-19 Resources page, where you will find a table with all cases reported to date at Penn Manor schools.
