Demolition begins at Dee Elementary

February 2, 2017

The school has been vacant at 550 22nd St. since the summer of 2016 when the Ogden School District built and opened New Bridge Elementary School.

The school district sold the building to the City of Ogden in February 2016 for $595,714, according to Standard-Examiner archives.

“It’s important to remember our history and to be nostalgic, but it’s also important to understand we have to provide the very best for our kids so unfortunately we have to let go of some things in the past so we can provide new and better opportunities,” Ogden School District spokesman Jer Bates said.
