HERMISTON -- A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new West Park Elementary School in Hermiston is at 10 a.m. Saturday at 555 S.W. Seventh St.
The official ground breaking for the replacement school was held in February 2010. Now, 11 months later, the school has opened to its first occupants after the winter holiday. The opening is two months ahead of the scheduled spring break move in.
