New elementary school coming to Herriman
The Jordan School District Board of Education approved a new elementary school in Herriman City at approximately 14000 South and 5600 West/Rosecrest Road. The board recommended this location for several reasons. From a transportation perspective, this school will service students that are relatively close to the school. It is anticipated that most of the students will be within walking distance of the elementary school. Direct road access to the school site from nearby housing developments will facilitate safe walking routes. This school will help to off-load some of the pressure experienced in other schools, reducing the need for portables. It is anticipated that this school will be open year round and should open in July of 2014.
