The last day of school for Whitehall-Coplay School District students will be June 12.

June 7, 8, 10 and 12 will be half days for students. No lunches will be served.


Students, check the lost and found tables at your school. There are many backpacks, books, lunch bags and clothing items.

If you are missing anything, especially books, please see if it is in the lost and found. All lost school books will need to be paid for by the student if they are not returned.


Warm-weather guidelines for your child’s attire during the school day: Please do not wear flip-flops. This footwear can cause injury on the playground and around schools. Students are encouraged to wear sneakers or sandals that have a strap in the back to prevent injury.

Also, shirts must cover shoulders, and shorts may not be shorter than arm length.

The district appreciates parents’ help with this matter.


If you move out of the district this summer, please notify the school, so transfer papers may be supplied for your new school. Also, if you move within the district, you must provide a new proof of registry to the transportation building.

Contact Michelle Khouri at 610-437-4780, ext. 1014. If you are changing bus stops for the 2018-19 school year, notify the bus transportation office at this same number as soon as possible.
