HERRIMAN — The Jordan School Board of Education has approved Blackridge Elementary as the name for the new elementary school in Herriman.

The name Blackridge comes from the mountain range directly south of the school and the nearby reservoir.

The school will open on July 25 with 1,000 students. The classrooms are framed, and the school will feature geothermal heating and cooling.

Once school starts, the community will be asked to help students and staff choose school colors and a mascot.
