Superintendent Evaluation

Dear Member of the Penn Manor Community,

The Penn Manor School Board is once again asking each and every member of the Penn Manor community to participate in an online evaluation of the superintendent. The Survey Monkey tool is easy to use. There is also an open response area, giving participants the opportunity to communicate directly with all nine (9) School Board members. They review all scores and comments. Please take the time to respond at the site listed below.  I value the feedback that you can provide and all responses are anonymous.

Even if you do not feel you have enough interaction with me to fully evaluate my strengths/weaknesses, I would encourage you to take this opportunity to share any comment you may have about the overall impression you have of the Penn Manor School District.

The survey will close on Friday, February 17. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Leichliter, Ed.D.

Free Flu Shots and Vaccines

The Department of Health will offer free flu and tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccines at the Farm Show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over 6 months old, and receiving a shot in January still provides protection for the rest of this flu season. The Tdap vaccine is a one-time substitute for a tetanus-diphtheria booster, which is needed every 10 years. Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive either vaccine. Appointments are not necessary. The Department of Health booth will be in the Main Hall in the Maclay Street lobby area.
