Westmont Hilltop School District

News & Announcements

Westmont Schools Closed on Monday, December 11, 2017

Late last night the Westmont Hilltop administration was made aware of a threat via social media of harm against our students. We have been working closely with the Upper Yoder Police Department throughout the early morning hours of Monday, December 11, 2017 to determine the credibility of the threat, and that process is ongoing. We have also consulted with Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan.

As of 4:00 am Monday morning, we have not been able to determine the credibility of the threat. As such, I have made the decision to cancel school for all Westmont Hilltop students, grades K-12, for Monday, December 11, 2017.

I understand that this closing places a burden on families to make last minute arrangements; for that, I am sorry. In the interest of student safety, however, I believe this action is necessary.

Sincerely,
Timothy P. Williams, Ed. D.
Superintendent

TWO WESTMONT HILLTOP HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS NAMED NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP SEMIFINALISTS

Westmont Hilltop High School seniors Ethan Dubnansky and Grayson Moyer were named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
