GRANSVILLE -- Administrators in the Tooele School District are working out details on what to do with hundreds of Grantsville Elementary School students and teachers for the next school year.

A fire torched Grantsville Elementary last week; investigators say a stove burner started the fire. Heavy smoke and water damage is now forcing the students and teachers to attend classes somewhere else.

Monday night, Principal Jeff Wyatt told KSL 5 News the plan for next year is to move Grantsville third- and fourth-graders to Willow Elementary School. Fifth- and sixth-graders will have classes at Grantsville Junior High School but will be separate from the junior high students.

Both of those schools are under capacity.

The Tooele District is also receiving estimates to rebuild Grantsville Elementary.
