Penn Manor is recommending that families contact their health provider for guidance if a student tests positive for COVID. For your information, below are the CDC recommendations for a person who tests positive.
If you test positive for COVID-19, it is recommended that you stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days. Wear a high-quality mask when you must be around others at home and in public.
- If after 5 days you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication, and your symptoms are improving, or you never had symptoms, you may end isolation after day 5.
- Regardless of when you end isolation, avoid being around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until at least day 11.
- You should wear a high-quality mask through day 10.
The PA Department of Health no longer recommends quarantine for individuals who are exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID. Families may contact their physician for recommendations or concerns.
Parents will need to provide a parent note or doctor’s note for any missed school days.
If your child currently has medication in the Nurse’s office please plan to pick it up on or BEFORE the last day of school, June 3rd. Medication must be picked up and the form signed by a parent/guardian. Medication that is not picked up will be discarded.
As the weather gets warmer there is an increased risk of tick-borne illnesses. Pennsylvania continues to be #1 in the U.S. in reported cases of Lyme disease. See the attached link for an interactive challenge created to help educate and protect kids (and adults!) from Lyme Disease.

Please contact your student’s home building school nurse via phone or email to schedule a time to complete these mandatory screenings. The screening process typically takes no more than 10 minutes to complete.
Parents who do not want their child screened at school must have the appropriate screenings completed by their private provider at the parent’s expense. The medical provider will need to complete the grade appropriate screenings and return the signed document to the school nurse Completed screenings may be faxed to the nurse fax number: 1-888-510-8011.

Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health launched the Lead-Free Families Program in August 2021. This program will enhance student health by ensuring that all children are being tested for lead poisoning, ensuring that families have access to lead education, and they have an opportunity to address lead hazards found in their home for free, regardless if it is a rental or owner-occupied unit.
The Lead-Free Families Program is a comprehensive lead initiative that has been fully funded by Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health to abate lead in our most vulnerable communities. Please click here for more information in English. Please click here for more information in Spanish.
