The first school bell of the year will herald in a new era for students and teachers at Albion Middle and Midvale Elementary schools.
Albion and Midvale are the first schools to be rebuilt as part of CSD’s ambitious and responsive plan to upgrade, expand and modernize educational facilities in all corners of the District. The school will open on Aug. 27, the first day of school.
Canyons District is celebrating the upcoming openings of the new schools at two ribbon-cutting events. Please join us at the following fetes:
- Midvale Elementary Monday, Aug. 13, 9 a.m.
- Albion Middle Thursday, Aug. 16, 6:30 p.m.
The Midvale and Albion projects and more than a dozen others, including the new Corner Canyon High, Butler Middle and the new Crescent View Middle, which are all scheduled to be done next fall have been made possible by the $250 million bond that CSD voters approved in 2010.
The new Midvale Elementary, 7852 S Pioneer St., covers 9 acres of a 25-acre campus it shares with Midvale Middle School. The 85,000-square-foot building, which replaces the 61-year-old building on Center Street, will have natural light in the rooms and hallways, state-of-the-art classrooms, air conditioning, computer labs, a new gymnasium and auditorium, and an expanded parking lot.

At Albion Middle School, 2755 E. Newcastle Dr., what was old is new again. Crews are now putting the finishing touches on the Sandy school’s makeover, which includes a new entryway, parking lot and landscaping. Inside, students and teachers are sure to enjoy a spacious commons area, skylights in every classroom, air conditioning, new band, dance and choral rooms, an upgraded media center, a refurbished gymnasium and auditorium, and an expanded area for the kitchen and cafeteria.
