FAIRVIEW PARK,  Ohio – A Fairview Park elementary school will be closed on Tuesday, December 19 because of a large number of absences due to illness.

St. Angela Merici Elementary is scheduled to undergo a total sanitization while it is closed on the 19th. A spokesman for the Cleveland Catholic Diocese says that after that is done, a decision will be made as to when the school will reopen.

Classes are scheduled to run through Friday, though, and the Diocese says that most likely, it will reopen Wednesday to finish the week out. Christmas break begins after that.
