Pondering future as 6 Catholic schools shut down
Christine Kennedy decided to transfer her 7-year-old son to public school in Farmingdale after church officials announced the local Catholic school would close, but she still can't bring herself to sign him up.
"It's hard to go" and officially enroll him, she said. "That means it's done." The closing of St. John Baptist De LaSalle Regional School in Farmingdale, she added, "feels like a funeral."
