District News: WHS graduate nominations sought

Tuesday, December 31, 2019 by The Press in School

Whitehall-Coplay School District is looking for Zephyr Graduates of Distinction. The graduates of distinction award recognizes Whitehall grads who have a marked achievement in academics, music, arts, civic or military service, community service or significant personal achievements.

Nomination forms are available at whitehallcoplay.org, Whitehall Township Public Library and Coplay Public Library or by contacting Dr. Barbara Chomik at 610-439-1431, ext. 1021.

The nomination deadline is Jan. 8.


Mark your calendar for kindergarten parent information night at Gockley Elementary School, scheduled for 6:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 22 at the school.

The event is intended for incoming kindergarten students.


The winter season is upon us, which means inclement weather conditions. All information pertaining to school delays, early dismissals and school closings is announced on various websites and channels — whitehallcoplay.org, wfmz.com, WAEB AM 790, WFMZ FM 100.7, WLEV AM 1400, WAEB FM 104.1 and WFMZ TV Channel 69.

In the event of a two-hour delay, students may not be dropped off prior to 10:35 a.m. since school personnel also have a change in report times. In the event of an early dismissal, parents who pick up students should report to the school by the modified dismissal time.

These policies are in effect for the safety of all students.
