OMAHA (KPTM)- A sign hangs on Holy Ghost School- "renovation." Despite the fact the school hit three of its renovation goals, there won't be any need for renovation any more.
"It's a huge disappointment that that school closed," said Kim Wascgiz.
"I don't think it was a good decision, because I believed in holy Ghost. We're parishioners, it's sad-sad for this area," said Wascgiz.
Rebecca Laze's children go to All Saints School, which was one of the six schools originally on the closing list.
"This is going to make us so happy," said Laze.
Laze's happy the Archdiocese went back to the drawing board and decided to keep All Saints.
"For the first time, they said the school was going to be closed. Now, it's okay for us," said Laze.
For Wascgiz, Holy Ghost will always be the school that her son went to for years. "He went to Holy Ghost from pre-k to eighth grade…It'll be sad the school is closing-he'll be sad the school is closing."
Though Holy Ghost's parking lot will remain empty-the school will always hold lot of memories for Wascgiz and many others.
OMAHA (KPTM) - The Omaha Archdiocese released the final plan to shut down some schools and merge parishes.
The plan calls for the closing of three schools, Holy Ghost, St. Stanislaus, and Assumption-Guadalupe.
Archbishop George Lucas says the plan will help make sure kids get a quality education for many years.
The Archdiocese also announced plans to merge several parishes in east Omaha. The plan would reduce from 34 parishes to 26 over five years.
