(NEWINGTON,Conn./CBS Connecticut and AP) – Just two weeks before the start of the new school year newly-appointed St. Mary Parish and School Administrator Reverend Shawn T. Daly told teachers, administrators and families Wednesday evening that the Newington School will close immediately.He says the school would not be able to sustain itself financially.
There are 109 students enrolled at St. Mary School for the 2016-2017 academic year. They are being encouraged to enroll at the newly-created St.Brigid-St. Augustine Partnership School in West Hartford. Any tuition assistance that was awarded to students attending St. Mary School for the coming school year will follow the student to the Partnership School.
Full-time teachers with ministerial agreements will be offered jobs at the partnership school. Part-time employees will be hired as needed.
