(WSYR-TV) — After years of declining enrollment and financial woes, two Catholic schools are merging.
St. Margaret’s Elementary School in Mattydale will consolidate with St. Rose of Lima Elementary School in North Syracuse at the end of this school year in June.
The request was made by the St. Margaret’s parish trustees, the superintendent of schools, and representatives of the Diocese of Syracuse.
Bishop Douglas Lucia accepted the recommendation last month.
Saint Margaret’s will not reopen next school year.
