Bus #137 was struck by a car at Main Street and Woods Avenue near Conestoga Elementary School shortly after 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19. There were no reports of injuries, and parents of the students involved in the accident are being contacted.
The Conestoga students were returning home from Pequea Elementary School. The accident occurred as the bus was stopped, waiting for students to get off. Thank you for your understanding with the lateness of getting your child home.

“Penn Manor School District believes that recess plays an important part in an elementary child’s school day. As part of the revised elementary academic schedule implemented for 2016-2017, daily lunch/recess procedures have been slightly modified at (school name). The modifications have been made as part of the district’s effort to create an elementary schedule that focuses on the academic and developmental needs of elementary children.
Students now have a 20-minute lunch, followed by a 20 minute lunch recess each day. In previous years, students had a 15-minute lunch, a 20-minute lunch recess, and an optional 15-minute recess.
Under the new schedule, the minutes for the optional 15-minute recess utilized in previous years are being spread throughout the day. Teachers are now expected to give their students multiple breaks throughout the day for the remaining time. During these break periods, students may engage in stretching, a short recess or an additional activity, at the discretion of each teacher.
The goal is to give teachers greater control in determining when students need a break versus having the schedule dictate the break. This is something the elementary principals will continue to monitor throughout the year so that adjustments can be made as necessary.
If you have any specific questions about this change, please contact your child’s principal and/or teacher.”
