Demolition Underway on Old Union High; New School Ready for Fall Opening

It’s the end of an era as demolition is underway on the old Union High School in Roosevelt. While most of the building is coming down, a portion will actually remain in tact and will be utilized as the new district offices. “Most of the work on the new school is done, and a lot of the classroom equipment and supplies have been moved in,” shares the Roosevelt Bulletin. “Teachers will be able to get into the building to set up their classrooms early, and the school will open for the year in August 2018.” Roosevelt City expressed their excitement for the new school that can accommodate up to 1500 students which is plenty of space for many years to come. “It will also serve as a great space for the community to gather and participate in athletics as well as arts and cultural events,” shares Roosevelt City. “We believe that Union High School is a great asset to our Roosevelt community and will serve us well both now and into the future.”
