Back-to-School Construction Update

From initial site work to a completed seismic upgrade, Canyons School District is making fast progress on the first five projects funded by proceeds of the $250 million bond voters approved in 2010. Here are a few details from Facilities Director Rick Conger's presentation to the Board of Education on Aug. 16, 2011: 

Sandy Elementary: Following a tight, three-month turnaround, an extensive seismic upgrade to Sandy Elementary School has been completed. Sandy Elementary was ready to welcome students back to school on Aug. 22.

Butler Middle School: A groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8. In preparation for the event, site and utilities work have begun on the new school’s footprint, adjacent to the current building, and construction bids are under final review.

Albion Middle School: The demolition portion of the school renovation is complete, and a new roof is to be completed by late fall. Albion students started the 2011-2012 school year at Cottonwood Heights Elementary on Monday, Aug. 22.
