Emergency Information

Emergency Information

School closings and delays will be reported on local radio and television stations before 6 a.m., whenever possible. They also will be posted on the district website, mobile phone app and Twitter feeds. You can also call the inclement weather hotline at 717-872-9500, ext. 2333, to find out the status of Penn Manor schools.

When inclement weather conditions develop during the day, resulting in an early closing, parents will be notified via automated phone call. High school and middle school students will generally be dismissed first, followed by elementary students. Phone calls will NOT be made for closings/delays announced before the school day begins.

AM- Kindergarten Weather Related Dismissal Reminders
If Penn Manor School District is closing early due to weather, AM kindergarten will ALWAYS dismiss normally at 11:35 AM UNLESS we close before 11:35 AM. Depending on the dismissal time this will impact YWCA WRAP students!

If the weather related dismissal happens BEFORE 12:50 PM, WRAP is CANCELLED! This means you must pick your AM kindergarten student up at Central Manor promptly at 11:35 AM when morning kindergarten is over. (This is what typically happens.)
If the weather related dismissal happens AFTER 12:50 PM then your students will still go to WRAP from 11:35- early weather related dismissal time. Students can then ride the bus home or be picked up from school at dismissal time. (This rarely happens.)
If the district is cancelling school due to weather, there are no YWCA after school
services at Central Manor Elementary School.

If your child is in WRAP it would be a good idea to have a plan B option in case of school closing early. If school is closed, the YWCA is closed at Central Manor Elementary.
