Immaculata closing could affect other schools

The closing of Immaculate Academy in Hamburg could affect public schools in the area.

Frontier Central Superintendent Bret Apthorpe said there are 24 students living in the district who attend Immaculata, including three who are seniors and will be in the last graduating class of the school.

Leaders of the Catholic girls’ high school announced last week that it would close at the end of this school year after 88 years in Hamburg.

Apthorpe said several parents have contacted the district’s transportation office to ask about busing to Mount Mercy Academy in South Buffalo.

The district provides a part-time nurse to Immaculata, he said.

Immaculata has an enrollment of 180.
