Due to inclement weather, all Catholic archdiocesan high schools and parochial elementary schools in Philadelphia will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 16, the archdiocese announced.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire region through 1 p.m. tomorrow afternoon. Forecasters are calling for a general two to three inches of snow for the Philadelphia area through tonight, with it continuing in the morning-commute hours.
Archdiocesan high schools and parochial elementary schools in the City of Philadelphia will utilize a Flexible Instruction Day.
Students and parents should refer to their local school website and look for updates from their local school administration for further details.
Archdiocesan high schools and parochial elementary schools in the suburban counties normally follow the decision of their corresponding local public school district and submit closure status independently.
