**ARCHDIOCESAN HIGH SCHOOLS AND PAROCHIAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA TO BE CLOSED TOMORROW, FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 2018**

Thursday, January 4th

Archdiocesan high schools and parochial elementary schools in the City of Philadelphia will be closed tomorrow, Friday, January 5, 2018.

This decision was made in the wake of today’s storm. It follows reports from the National Weather Service projecting that the next 60 hours will feature dangerously low temperatures, winds gusting 35-40 miles an hour, and wind chills between 0 degrees and -5 degrees.

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.
