With schools opening shortly, Whitehall-Coplay School District will maintain the same bus stops in the borough as in the past, with locations on Chestnut, Second and Fourth streets.
Borough police patrols will keep a watchful eye when the youngsters leave for school in the morning and return in the afternoon.
There is considerably less vehicle traffic on Chestnut Street, where school buses make two stops, because of the closing of the Coplay-Northampton Bridge.
Funds from mailers to borough residents and businesses are beginning to arrive for Coplay Recreation & Welfare Association’s annual drive, a mainstay in town with its food bank, convalescent equipment, Halloween parade and other holiday events.
Upcoming borough meetings include:
Coplay Senior Citizens, 1:30 p.m. Aug. 16, at Commitment to Family & Community, 165 Cherry St.
Coplay Town Watch, 7 p.m. Aug. 16, at American Legion home, South Second Street
