For the first time in its Fifty year history Leidy school sat silent as September school bells rang at nearby schools in the area. For residents it was a little strange to experience the silence and emptiness at Leidy. . The good news is that the school system now has a web site that is up and running that is being used to sell the 27 closed schools. Leidy is among the 27 schools on the site. Some schools on the list have already received attention from potential buyers. University City for example is one such school. Leidy School has also received some attention from at least two developers; where this attention will go is anyone’s guess.
