Parts of Jacob Gunther Elementary School will be rented out by Wee Friends Nursery School when Gunther closes on June 30.
North Bellmore Schools Superintendent Arnold Goldstein said that Gunther will close because the district needed to cut $1.8 million in costs and that enrollment has decreased since the 2004-05 school year.
Wee Friends Nursery School focuses on pre education and care and has facilities in both Merrick and Wantagh.
"It is an excellent program," Goldstein said. "We are still working out the details."
