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.
