HICKSVILLE - Parents at Saint Ignatius Loyola School in Hicksville are planning to hold a rally this evening to protest the proposed closing of the school.

The protesters are trying to convince Bishop William Murphy to change his mind about closing St. Ignatius and five other Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre in June.

Some of the parents insist that enrollment has not dropped as much as Bishop Murphy says.

The rally is expected to start at 7 p.m. tonight.
