FARMINGTON — Two elementary schools and two junior high schools in the Davis School District are currently part of separate boundary studies.
The boundaries of Eagle Bay and Snow Horse elementaries are being changed in preparation for the opening of Elementary School No. 59 in the fall of 2010. The boundary study of Millcreek and Mueller Park junior highs does not involve a new school, but will be used to balance student numbers and make more efficient use of the buildings.
For more information on both boundary studies, visit the Davis School District website at http://www.davis.k12.ut.us/storythree.html.
