SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Jordan School District officials say it will take at least six months to repair fire damage at Sandy Elementary.
That means the school will NOT reopen until next fall.
Some 600 Sandy Elementary students were relocated into six neighboring schools after fire broke out at the school November fourth. Nobody was injured in the blaze, which fire officials attributed to a spark from a welder's torch.
Fire damage was estimated at about one-and-a-half (M) million dollars. Insurance will cover it.
Spokeswoman Melinda Colton says the Jordan Board of Education is examining whether to complete seismic and other scheduled upgrades while the school is empty or wait until it's the school's turn.
The board is expected to discuss the matter at its December seventh meeting.
