BRIDGEPORT - The Diocese of Bridgeport announced Friday the decision to close Holy Family Elementary School.

The students from Holy Family will merge with Our Lady of Assumption for the next academic year. Superintendent Dr. Margaret Dames says the decision was based on enrollment and finances. Dames also says the decision wasn't easy.

"We want to see these two schools survive," she says. "And we know they can, as long as we all pull together."
