Please send a note in with your child if there is any change in transportation for your student. If your child has been assigned to a bus, he/she will be sent home on the bus unless we are notified differently. If your child is a walker, we need a note stating that he/she is a car rider. Please specify if this is a one-time change or if this is a long-term plan. Notification can also be made by calling the school office (872-9540, ext. 3600) by 3:00 PM. It is our goal to help all students arrive home safely. Thank you for your assistance.
It’s almost here! The first day of school is just around the corner and that means that we will be gearing up for our Fall fundraiser soon. In order to personalize our fundraiser, we will be taking an all-school picture at 10 AM the first day of school. We don’t want to exclude our new afternoon kindergartners, though. Parents of afternoon kindergartners are encouraged to bring your child to the school by 9:55 AM so that they can be included. Please note that parents bringing their afternoon children should remain at the school during the photograph session and take your child home until the start of the afternoon class at 12:50 PM.
We look forward to a lot of smiling faces!

Due to additional changes made this summer to legislation regarding school volunteers and clearances, the School Board has delayed implementation of the policy requiring clearances. Stay tuned for additional information and final implementation guidelines later in the 2015-2016 school year.
Anyone wishing to volunteer during school hours or during field trips are required to obtain clearances. Please clink on the links below to obtain these clearances:
(*Please note ~ clearances are not paid for by the school district).
- Act 34 Pa State Police Criminal History Check
- Act 151 PA Child Abuse History Clearance
- Act 114 FBI Criminal Background Check (ONLY if you have lived in PA less than 10 years)
- Volunteer Application Form – Penn Manor School District 1.13.15
When you receive ALL the necessary clearances and complete the volunteer application, you may submit copies to the Eshleman office beginning August 10, 2015.
Clearances will remain valid with the district as long as you volunteer at least once per school year, for up to three years. All clearances MUST BE RENEWED every three years to continue as a volunteer in the district. The date for renewal is determined by the date of your “oldest” clearance or the one you received “first.” For example, if your clearances were dated October 5 and November 23, those clearances would need renewed by October 5.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
