WHS students, only Whitehall-Coplay School District Chromebooks will be permitted for in-school use for this school year. No other devices will connect to the WCSD Wi-Fi.


WCSD’s policy limits educational trips to seven school days per year. Any days missed for travel beyond the seven days of absence will be illegal days if the student’s age is 16 or younger.

The family educational trip request form, available in the school office, must be submitted to the office before departure.

WCSD prefers all trips be scheduled during holiday breaks.


WCSD believes daily attendance in school is an extremely important factor in your child’s success in his or her educational experience. If a child is absent, a written note with a specific reason and signed by the parent/guardian is required immediately upon return to school.

WCSD is closely monitoring unexcused absences. All absences are marked unexcused. This is changed to a legally excused absence once a written excuse with specific reason is given to your child’s teacher. An unexcused absence occurs when no note is written by the parent/guardian or the reason provided is inexcusable.

If a student has four unexcused absences, a truancy elimination plan will be developed. The parent/guardian may be charged with truancy and be required to appear before the Whitehall magistrate’s office if unexcused absences continue to occur.

Also, once a student is absent for more than 16 days during the school year, a doctor’s note will be required for each additional absence or the absence will be unexcused.
