Neshaminy School District officials are thinking about closing at least three elementary schools. Declining enrollment has left 800 classroom seats vacant. Closing the schools would require the district borrow money for either additions at the remaining schools or the construction of a new consolidated school. District officials say they will know by the end of the school year which facilities will be closing.
