Archdiocesan high schools and Catholic elementary schools in the City of Philadelphia will be closed Thursday, Feb. 13 due to the heavy snow and ice expected to begin falling Wednesday night in the Philadelphia region.
The Philadelphia Archdiocese made the announcement Wednesday, Feb. 12, ahead of a storm that is expected to drop six to eight inches of snow and a mix of sleet and rain in the city and up to a foot or more of snow in the western and northern suburbs.
Archdiocesan high schools and Catholic elementary schools in the suburban counties normally follow the decision of their corresponding local public school district and submit closure status independently.
CatholicPhilly.com will report on closures or delays of schools in the wake of the storm for the rest of the week as information becomes available.
