New York City is building new school on site of former Catholic school

New York City officials have broken ground for a new K-5 school that is being constructed on the site of a former Catholic school. The Queens Chronicle says the school, called PS 316, will serve 444 students from the Ozone Park community in Queens and is slated to open in September 2014. The parish school for St. Stanislaus Bishop & Martyr Catholic parish once stood on the site; the Diocese of Brooklyn sold the site to the city in 2011.
