LeRoy’s Holy Family School has its work cut out.
Parents met with church officials last night in an effort to ward off closing of the Catholic School by next fall.
A plan was announced earlier this month that would have merged Holy Family with St. Joseph’s School in Batavia.
Holy Family would have been left with only a Pre-K and after school program.
Then the diocese of Buffalo announced it would back off the consolidation of the schools and give Holy Family a chance to save itself.
That will require the school to raise some 70-thosuand dollars and almost double enrollment.

Here’s an advisory for city residents living in the area of Ross and Bank Streets.
The city’s Water Department has to repair a fire hydrant tomorrow.
The repair means that water will be shut off on Ross, between North and Bank.
Bank Street between Chandler and Vine will also be affected.
When the water is turned back on it could be discolored. Let it run for awhile before using it for laundry.
The repair is expected to begin around 8:30 tomorrow morning.
