Weber district says refurbishing would be too expensive at Valley School in Huntsville

From The Salt Lake Tribune: After 148 years of homework assignments, pop quizzes, dances, sporting events and one rogue bear, the Valley School in Huntsville, Utah, is closing its doors. A mainstay of the community, the school building needs refurbishing. But cost estimates placed the price tag at almost as much as a new school. Weber School District officials are opting to build a more centrally situated school in nearby Eden, rather than make repairs.
