Ss. Peter and Paul School is closing after results of a nearyearlong study revealed that the school could not meet financial and enrollment challenges. Only 86 students were enrolled in the school, and parents noted that 20 more were needed to give the school the possibility of remaining open.
The school opened on Feb. 9, 1925.
