The Weatherly Area School Board approved a policy update banning smoking and vaping on school property at a special meeting Wednesday night.

Old textbooks from 1984, 1995, 1999 and 2002 were approved to be discarded.
All of the above was approved unanimously by the five school board members in attendance, board President Girard Fewins, Vice President Chad Obert, Treasurer Georgeann Herling and members Matthew VonFrisch and Shay Wagner. William Knepper, Brian O’Donnell, Amy Potsko and Gerard Grega were absent.
The board tabled a revised list of school bus drivers for Rohrer Bus Company, to get clarification on the names.
