San Juan Unified School District is opening its doors to Loretto High students.
The Catholic all-girls school announced that it will close at the end of this school year because of declining enrollment.
Trent Allen, spokesman for the district, said interested families are encouraged to attend a special informational meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the district office, 3738 Walnut Ave.

The window for open enrollment applications, which closed Thursday, has been extended for Loretto High families, Allen said.
