School Cancellation

When the Lincoln Public Schools close because of inclement weather (not including heat), the Lincoln Catholic Schools will also close. Cancellations will be announced on KFOR (1240 AM) and KLIN (1400 AM) radio stations. KOLN/KGIN-TV (Channels 10/11) will broadcast school closings at 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Cathedral School will also announce via text and voicemail through our SchoolReach mass communication system. If you'd like to join the mass texting message service, please text the letter Y to 68453

Generally, school will not be dismissed once it is in session. However, parents or guardians who so desire may come to school to pick up their children in inclement weather at anytime during the day after informing the school office.
