West Shore district in talks to close a school

The West Shore School District is considering closing one of its four middle schools.

At a Wednesday night meeting in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County, district leaders proposed to close either Lemoyne Middle School or New Cumberland Middle School.

The move is expected to save the district about $1.1 million.

About 530 kids would be forced to go to a different school, something some parents aren’t too happy about.

“I just want them to realize that them closing the school, does a lot to a kid, it’s not right,” said Rhodesia Kinnard, whose son could be affected by the proposed closure.

A final decision on the matter isn’t expected until sometime in the spring.
