Archdiocese of Chicago officials said Tuesday they are continuing to tally the results of the recent fundraising and registration drive to keep St. Alphonsus Liguori School in Prospect Heights open and reiterated that an announcement regarding the school's future will not likely come until Friday.

Due to falling enrollment, the school was required to raise $400,000 in donations and register at least 135 students for the 2016-17 school year by Monday, Feb. 8, to avoid being closed in June.

 

No official sources with either the archdiocese or school have been able to say whether either of the goals have been met.
