EPASD Mask Guidelines -- Updated 12/1/21

Blackboard Message sent 12/1/21:

Dear Panther Families,

In our last communication concerning the mask mandate on November 19th, we communicated that as per our safety plan, masks would be optional starting December 6th; however, as of yesterday, November 30th, Pennsylvania schools must maintain masking orders until the PA Supreme Court hears oral arguments on Dec. 8. This latest ruling overturns a Commonwealth Court decision that lifted masking guidelines on Dec. 4.

Thus, face coverings are still required, and we will provide an update after December 8th.

Sincerely,
Donna

Final Budget, Fiscal Year Beginning 7/1/21

On June 3, 2021, the East Pennsboro Board of School Directors adopted the budget for the fiscal year beginning on July 1, 2021. School directors and administrators worked together for several months to prepare a budget that maintains high-quality educational programs and facilities, yet does not place an unreasonable burden on taxpayers. As a result of their efforts, the $48.4 million budget calls for a real estate tax mill rate of 13.0691, or a 2.3% tax increase. The median assessed home in East Pennsboro Township is $176,000, which translates to a $40.46 annual tax increase for the median assessed homeowner.
