Alta View Elementary
10333 S. Crocus St., Sandy
Groundbreaking: April 19, 2016
Opening Celebration: expected August 2017
As students looked out of their classroom windows in 2016, they saw a strange shape taking place in the corner of the field behind the school. What looked, at first, like a jumble of beams and blocks was no mystery, however. They knew they were watching the creation of the schoolhouse that would replace the Alta View students had attended since 1963. The new, 700-student capacity school is expected to be completed in August, 2017. It will feature a security vestibule that will require all visitors to be seen by school staff before they enter the building, a large commons area filled with natural light and a grand staircase leading to second-floor rooms, a media center, activity room and a computer lab. In addition, the building will be equipped with state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems and voice amplification equipment for teachers in the classroom.
