Portable classrooms, or learning cottages, have started rolling into the Eccles Center parking lot at Park City High School. The school will use a total of 11 cottages, each with two classroom spaces, for students and teachers displaced by the upcoming reconstruction.

The cottages are 24×60 feet, so each classroom is 24×30, and will contain a host of amenities for technology, heating, phones, and so forth, according to Joe Schuring, district head of building and grounds. Portable bathrooms will be separate. Students will start moving into the portable classrooms at the end of January or the beginning of February, Schuring continued. The Park City Board of Education will hear a report on the portables at its meeting Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 5 p.m. in the district offices.
