Message from the Superintendent

Dear Panther Families,


Happy New Year to you and yours. As you are by now aware, the CDC has issued a revision to the COVID-19 quarantine guidelines. In addition, at the School Board meeting on Thursday, January 6th, the board voted to modify our guidelines so as to not differentiate between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Please see the COVID-19 Dashboard on our website for additional information. Our goal continues to be to maintain in-person learning for our students and staff.


Thank you for your support on the home front as we manage the changes prescribed by the governmental agencies.


Here's to a great year and for our students, staff, and families in 2022!


Fondly,

Donna

A Walk in the Woods

High school students in Mr. Cornwell's class participated in a wonderful lesson in which they connected science to the novel that they are reading entitled "A Walk in the Woods." Thank you to our teachers for engaging our students with these creative educational lessons!

Over the next few weeks, the Mobile Dentist is scheduled to visit East Pennsboro Elementary School, West Creek Hills Elementary School, and East Pennsboro Area Middle School. For more information and to sign up, please visit the site here. You will have to input your zip code and select your child's school.
