School Boundaries Change in Washington County 

Following the announcement of Coral Cliff’s Elementary School shutting down in the Fall semester, other students may be changing schools to match new school boundaries. 

Toquerville students who currently attend Hurricane Elementary are expected to transfer to La Verkin Elementary during the new school year. 

Some of the board members of the Washington County School District said this change makes sense since those students were driving past La Verkin to get to Hurricane. 

St. George Gas Prices Rise Above $3 

Gas prices appear to be rising after a period of cheaper gas for the region during the Winter season. 

This morning’s AAA gas report said the current average for a gallon of unleaded is set at about $3.01. While it has risen to above $3, it’s not nearly as expensive as the average during February 2023. 

Gas during this time last year was an average of $3.83 per gallon, so count your blessings. 


Fun fact about Stockton Myers, the writer of Sunrise Stories. 

Stockton can think of nothing more disappointing than biting into a piece of food, only to find it disgusting. Such was the case of a bag of spring rolls Stockton’s family cooked in the oven for Sunday dinner. Everything else made for dinner was absolutely delicious, but the egg rolls tasted rancid. Everything else was homemade, so maybe it was just a losing battle for the spring rolls. 

Happy Monday!
