Save Skyline High School 
Granite School District (GSD) missed the mark by failing to provide an alternative option to the demolition of the mid-century era landmark Skyline High School. GSD is proposing a bond for November that includes building a new campus and has not seriously considered any options to rehabilitate a place of tradition, memory, and distinctive character that could serve the students and teachers equally as well in safety, security, technology, and providing a 21st century learning environment.
GET INVOLVED NOW to help #SAVESKYLINE.



Check out our letter to the school district on the Preservation Utah Facebook Page
We encourage you to write your own letters and send them to:
Granite School District Administration and Board Members
2500 South State Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84115.

You may also email your letters to:
Terry Bawden, Granite School District Board President
