ALPINE SCHOOL DISTRICT APPROVES NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
FOR EAGLE MOUNTAIN: OPENING FALL 2010
Eagle Mountain, UT, January 23 – The Alpine School District school board approved funding for two new elementary schools, one in Traverse Mountain and the other in Eagle Mountain. Opening Fall 2010, the new elementary school in Eagle Mountain will be located Southwest of Overland Trails Subdivision in City Center. The district owns the property and will begin design and engineering plans in the next weeks. With growing numbers of elementary children in the city the new school will be a great asset to the community. It will also allow for a more manageable number of students at Eagle Valley Elementary School, the only elementary school in city center, which currently has over 1,000 students.
“We appreciate that Alpine School District recognizes our needs and that they continue to provide educational resources for our community,” said Mayor Heather Jackson.
