ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The pink slips are coming out in the Allentown School District.

Union officials said 99 teachers received layoff notices in the mail late last week.

Under their current contract, the district was required to notify affected teachers by June 7.

The district has until June 30 to approve a final budget, so there's a possibility that some of those teachers could be brought back, but the union president said that's not likely.
