School District Puts Pianos on Sale
Need a piano? Well, the Huntington School District is set to dispose of several older ones. Why not submit a bid and see what happens?
Five pianos that are currently housed at Huntington High School and J. Taylor Finley Middle School are available on the district's equipment disposal bid. "They are all usable," said Joan R. Fretz, district director of fine and performing arts. "Some need more minor repairs than others, such as pin tightening or replacement of keys. All will need to be tuned. Most would need to be painted for home use. They would be most appropriate for a home recreation room, to be played by a beginning student. They no longer meet our professional use needs."
Official bid sheets will be available soon during regular school hours at the district's business office located on Tower Street in the central administration wing of Jack Abrams School. Information about the bid and when it must be returned are included in the packet. To obtain bid sheets call Robin Roth at (631) 673-2121 or contact Mrs. Fretz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and address in any correspondence. Completed bid sheets must be returned to the business office. They cannot be e-mailed.
Bids on more than one piano can be submitted. "If you are awarded the bid for more than one piano, you will be able to decline the ones that you don't want," Mrs. Fretz said. Successful bidders are responsible for moving the piano out of the building. The pianos do not come with a moving dolly or a bench."
To arrange an inspection of the pianos contact Mrs. Fretz. The pianos are sold "as is."
