Manheim Township High School

Manheim Township Middle School and Manheim Township High School will transition to virtual learning today and Tuesday because more than 5% of each building’s population tested positive for COVID-19.

Manheim Township School District Superintendent Robin Felty informed families of the switch Thursday afternoon. The state departments of Health and Education recommend that a school building close for academic instruction if more than 5% of the building’s population tests positive for COVID-19.

Manheim Township declined to release the total number of exposures as of Thursday afternoon. Spokesperson ShaiQuana Mitchell said the district’s COVID-19 dashboard would be updated today in keeping with the district’s usual protocol.

There will be no school for students Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, according to the district calendar.

Families can pick up a grab-and-go meal for students in the back parent drop-off loop of Manheim Township Middle School from 10–11 a.m. on both days of remote instruction.

Morning and afternoon Career & Technology Center students will not report to the center until Tuesday. Extracurricular activities that need to use district facilities can take place as scheduled, according to Felty.
