BERWICK, COLUMBIA COUNTY – (WBRE/WYOU) A Catholic elementary school that was expected to close is now able to continue operating.
The Holy Family School in Berwick was slated to close at the end of the school year due to declining enrollment and escalating costs.
According to a Facebook post by the Holy Family of Berwick Alumni Association, a committee met with Bishop Gainer, his staff, and the Parish Priests.
At the end of the meeting, Bishop Gainer gave his blessing to allow the school to remain open.
Holy Family School is home to more than 60 Pre-K through 4th grade students.
