New Lockers Approved for Murray Ave. Middle School

Lower Moreland School Board agreed to put 650 new lockers in Murray Avenue Middle School.

Earlier this month the Lower Moreland School Board approved the purchase of 650 new lockers to be installed in Murray Avenue Middle School.

The Board met for its special meeting last week and approved a payment in the amount of $130,195 for the lockers from School Essentials, Inc. The School Board felt the condition and age of the existing lockers was not suitable for its school.

“The need to replace the lockers in the Murray Avenue School was included in the School District’s five year capital plan," Superintedent Marykay Feeley said. "The age and condition of the lockers is extremely poor and many fail to operate properly."

On average, the total comes to about $200 per new locker.

The new lockers will be ready for the following school year starting next fall.

"The school board approved proceeding with the work, which will be performed this summer," Feeley said. "The project will provide safe and secure storage for students belongings when they return to school in September.”

They just spent so much money putting new locks on those lockers not too long ago….just Feeley wasting our taxpayers’ money some more. Money grows on trees in this district.

As a parent of a MA student the lockers are long over due. The lockers are so small that students are assigned 2 and many lockers no longer function.

The kids don't even need lockers as far as I'm concerned

I love how this school district continues to spend money on things that we really do not need. She is a lot like the dictator that is running this country. I hope these scum that sit on the school board finally wake up and fire this ugly looking weirdo.

She does like to waste our tax money. Time to find someone who will live in the district and appreciate our hard earned tax money and not spend it like it grows on trees
