North Schuylkill Graduation postponed

North Schuylkill's graduation ceremony was rescheduled from Wednesday to 7 p.m. Thursday at Ghosh Orthodontics Field at Spartan Stadium at the high school.

Superintendent Robert Ackell said there were thunderstorms in the area earlier Wednesday and showers forecast through the evening. Parents and seniors are made aware of a rain date if needed when the schedule is prepared for the year. Also, a phone call was placed districtwide and people notified via social media and other means.

If the graduation was held in the auditorium seniors would be limited to a number of guests permitted, which is something Ackell said they didn't want to do.
