Just as classes get underway for many students in the Valley,  two Catholic schools have announced weather-related closings.

Holy Family School in Poland and Youngstown’s St. Joseph the Provider School posted messages on their social media sites that classes had been canceled on Thursday, August 24, 2023, because of expected excessive heat.

“Stay cool and hydrated.  We look forward to seeing you on Friday,” was included in the message on Holy Family’s Facebook page.

The Stormtracker 21 Forecast predicts a high of 89 degrees on Thursday.
