MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WOOD)—The desks, pianos and playground equipment that hundreds of children once enjoyed are now for sale.
The Muskegon Heights School District is auctioning off all contents of the now shuttered Martin Luther King Junior Elementary.
More than 75 items are up for bid, including classroom furniture, playground and kitchen equipment, pianos and cabinets.
Those interested in owning a piece of the school can inspect the sale items Monday, July 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the school, located at 600 E. Barney Avenue.
The online auction will take place on biddergy.com Tuesday, July 7, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Martin Luther King Junior Early Childhood Academy was founded in August 2013, after the troubled Muskegon Heights Schools became one of the first public school districts to transition to a charter school system.
After many administrative changes, the district became a self-managed public school academy system in 2014.
In April 2015, a new emergency manager took over for Muskegon Heights Public School Academy- Steven Michael Schiller.
According to Trulia, Martin Luther King Junior Early Childhood Academy served approximately 135 kindergarten and first grade students.
