      New Heartland elementary school set to open

      The new Ottumwa elementary school is set to open its doors in August

      It's been a work in progress for the past year.

      The new Ottumwa elementary school is set to open its doors in August.

      The building is looking more and more like a school with construction going strong.

      The new building would combine Agassiz, Pickwick, and Wildwood schools into one school for 2nd- 5th grades.

      Douma school would stay open for kindergarten and first grades only.

      On Monday, the Ottumwa School Board will meet at 6 p.m. and on the agenda is a vote to choose the new name of the building.

      Names that have been talked about include, Prairie View, Liberty and Fahrney.
