School items to be sold this Thursday and Friday
Wright Elementary School, scheduled for demolition sometime this summer, is the warehouse for hundreds of items that go on the garage sale block this Thursday and Friday.
You can pick up a urinal for about $15. Two portable class buildings (24 by 36 feet) can be purchased cheaply, but be prepared to move them.
Metal desks, sinks, cabinets, counters, trash cans, lavatory sinks, and dozens upon dozens of other useful items, all are there ready for a new home.
The school district had placed all items with a firm that handles surplus materials, and the online bidding deadline for items posted there is past.
This week Wright Elementary will be the scene of the continuing sale, which begins each day at 10 a.m.
The district will take cash, a check, or credit card to handle the purchase.
The district had some luck with the online surplus firm, which sold a school bus for $5,400. The bus, according to bus barn officials, had a trade-in value of $750.
The bus was purchased by a sheriff’s department in Southern Utah and will be used as a command post for rescue work.
The school building has been the repository for surplus material ever since it was vacated several years ago.
Superintendent Dennis Carlson told the school board last Wednesday night that it appeared that demolition of the school would begin in late July.
