COAL TOWNSHIP — Due to recent security issues involving students, the Shamokin Area School District has instituted a policy of not allowing students to mill about Kemp Memorial Stadium during home football games.

The district informed the public on Thursday that students — regardless of school or grade — will only be permitted to walk to and from restrooms and concession stands. The area behind the visitor’s bleachers will also be blocked off during games.
