no, I hadn't! i had heard there was talk at the archdiocese level about consolidation, but didn't know when official word was going to come down.

it's sad, even though I didn't go to any of them! lol when i lived there, there were 7 Catholic grammar schools, my brother went to one which closed awhile ago. it seems to be the right thing to do from a cost standpoint (and I think they picked the right location for the new school), but sad at the same time, KWIM?

thanks for the link - i passed it on.
