Last "First Day of School" in Union Gap

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, Wash. -- The Union Gap School started classes Monday and, if construction stays on schedule, it will be the last 'first day of school' there.

A new $15 million dollar school is supposed to be built right next to the existing school on Columbus Street. Construction is expected to begin within the next month or so.

A tentative groundbreaking is scheduled for September 20th.

The Union Gap School, which teaches preschool through 8th grade, has been around since the 1930's.
