Plans set into place for schools’ final weeks


I t’s the moment they’ve been looking forward to for months: the end of the school year.

Summer vacation is quickly approaching, but before it’s here there’s plenty to be done, such as final exams and a little thing called graduation.

At Whitehall Central High School, the final day of school was Tuesday and most students are hard at work taking their final exams. At the Elementary School, students will have to wait until Friday, June 24 for the last day of school. Students will dismissed at 10 a.m.
