Penn Manor Football News updated 8-5-20
Covid 19 Update:
Football practice/conditionings has begun. Please check your emails as information and a calendar was sent. Players should all be signed up to receive information on the remind app. If this is not occurring they need to reach out the coaches as practice to get set up.
The district III is meeting this week to determine if the Lancaster Lebanon League will begin August 10th or if it will be delayed. We wish we had answers faster for families but unfortunately information changes weekly. At this time one plan for the start of athletes does indicate there may be no fans. However, please keep in mind information does change and does get updated. We will release information when it becomes known. At this time (unless there are changes this week) football will begin August 10, 8-10:30 & 6-8; August 11th, 8-10:30, August 12, 8-10:30 & 6-8, August 13, 4pm Team Photos, practice 6-8, August 14, 8-10:30, Pool 12-2 w/Pizza, Practice 6-8. This is heat acclimation practice and is mandatory.
As of August 3rd, the school board did vote on a blended plan to begin school. They will look at this again in September to consider updates and or changes if needed.

2. PIAA physicals are due. AOL is offering for free by appt only on July 11, and July 20. Contact Coach if you need information.
3. Players reporting for practice/conditioning must report wearing a mask and be dressed ready to go. After a temp check and a review of screening questions the mask may be removed. However, the state continues to change mask requirements so different details may change from week to week. Players must bring their own water as there will be no sharing of water bottles and the school will not provide water. The coaches have sanitizer for equipment ect. There will be no access to the inside of any school buildings.
4. Special thanks to Jim Keck, the volunteers and the patrons who helped make the Chicken BBQ a success.
