  • Health and Safety Statement: December 1, 2021

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 12/1/2021 12:45:00 PM

    On November 16, 2021, we communicated that the Commonwealth Court ruled that the Department of Health’s automatic supersedeas (stay) in the Corman et al. v. Beam appeal will be lifted on December 4, 2021. The PA Department of Health filed an emergency application to reinstate its automatic supersedeas during its appeal. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued an order on November 30, 2021 that reinstates the mask order until the Court has the opportunity to hear the case and issue a final ruling. 

    As a result, absent further Court action, masks are required to be worn in our schools until further notice per our Board approved Health and Safety Plan. If someone has an approved medical exemption, that exemption remains in place.

    As a reminder, students are also required to continue wearing masks on school buses.

    We will continue to update information on the Coronavirus Update Center on our website as additional information becomes available.

  • Tonight! Landisville PTO Night Out with Dinner & a Movie

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 11/23/2021 2:00:00 PM

    As a reminder, tonight, Tuesday November 23 is the Landisville PTO Family Night Out of Dinner, Dessert and movie, featuring "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving." Families and friends can choose to participate in one, two or all three! There is no obligation to participate in them all (though we'd LOVE it if that is the case!).

    **Warning: long but important read! Key takeaways are:

    1. A few spots remaining for the movie tonight; FCFS
    2. Adding an optional advance online payment via Sign Up Genie
    3. KIDS EAT FREE ON TUESDAYS at Miller's Ale House
    4. Parma Pizza is a great option if you only want dinner
    5. Don't forget dessert at Menchies!!
    6. No flyers are needed but must inform server or cashier of PTO

     

    MOVIE

    We've had a great response rate so far for all three showings of the movie at Reel Cinema at the Crossings of Conestoga. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP!! We still have a handful of seats in each session with the greatest availability for the 6:35 p.m. showing. If you haven't signed up yet but want to come, you still have time. We will continue to take reservations through the afternoon. If space permits at the time of the showing, we will allow walk-ins. Ticket donation is $5 per person or $20 per family (defined as immediate family members in the same household)*. Families should register here https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050445A9A92AA7FA7-movie. There are 4 wheelchair seats for each viewing. 

    To help with ticket payment collection, we will be opening up the Sign Up Genius to allow for optional advance payments. This option should be available by 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. There is up to a $1.50 fee per family to use this option. Payment will also be collected in the lobby of the theatre with checks payable to the Landisville PTO or exact change with cash.

    DINNER

    Two restaurants have graciously opened up their locations for a Dinner Night Out with the Landisville PTO earning a percentage of the proceeds from anyone mentioning the Landisville PTO TONIGHT ONLY.

    •  MILLER'S ALE HOUSE (1000 Christopher Place in The Crossings, Lancaster). Miller's Ale House is opening up the other side of the restaurant and scheduled extra staff JUST FOR US this evening. Families should inform the hostess of their affiliation with the Landisville PTO but MUST also inform their specific server in order for the PTO to receive credit. And did I mention that KIDS EAT FREE ON TUESDAY NIGHTS, following the Ale House's normal requirements!!!! Since they opened the house for us, Miller's Ale House is requiring DINE-IN SERVICE for our patrons.
    • PARMA PIZZA & GRILL (301 Main St., Landisville) is also participating. So if your family prefers a little faster meal either before or after the movie OR if you don't plan to attend but want to participate in the Dinner Night Out, this is the PERFECT option for you!! Parma Pizza allows both dine-in and take-out to participate (sorry, no delivery). Patrons do not need a flyer but MUST inform the server or the person taking your order if picking up your affiliation with the Landisville PTO.

    DESSERT

    If that isn't enough, Menchies Frozen Yogurt (1500 Christopher Place, Suite B106, Lancaster - next to the theatre) is also participating. Again, no flyer needed - just mention to the cashier your family is with the PTO and we get credit. This is also a great option for someone who cannot participate in the movie or dinner but would love to grab some frozen yogurt, perhaps right after school! 

    So come join us for one, two, or ALL of the activities in any order you choose! Kick off the extended holiday weekend by HAVING FUN and SUPPORTING THE PTO with FAMILY and FRIENDS with a short holiday classic movie. We will have a few prizes and maybe even do something else special at the movie theater.

    Thanks. We hope to see you tonight, November 23! Bring that coat, it's going to be cold!

     

    **COVID PROTOCOLS WILL BE FOLLOWED BASED ON EACH PARTNER'S REQUIREMENTS. PARENTS SHOULD MAKE PARTICIPATION DECISIONS BASED ON WHAT IS BEST FOR THEIR FAMILY. Please note that take out is permitted at all three dining facilities**

  • iPad Care Reminder

    Posted by Cheryl Irwin-Bass on 11/22/2021 1:00:00 PM

    Because we often find that with a holiday break comes misplaced, locked, and/or broken iPads, we're 
asking that you take a moment to read the following reminders regarding iPad care:

    • Encourage your children to find a safe place to store their iPads at home where it won’t get lost or broken. They should tell an adult where it is being kept and return it to that spot whenever it is not in use.
    • If you are traveling, it’s probably a good idea to leave the iPad at home in a “safe spot”.
    • Encourage your children to take a break from their iPads to enjoy family and friends along with other activities.  Just be sure to put the iPad in their “safe spot”.
    • LOST iPADS should be reported to your child’s teacher immediately following the break.
    • Locked iPads with unknown passcodes should be reported to the teacher immediately following break. If the iPad says “Connect to iTunes” it will need to be erased.

    Thanks so much and have a great break!
