Hillside’s Board of Directors discussed options for our upcoming move at the end of this school year at our monthly meeting. For those of you who are not aware – our lease ends in June 2017 and since we are bursting at the seams, this is a perfect opportunity for us to move to a larger location where we can serve more students. Kathy and the board are well aware of the interest of both our parents and teachers as to the school’s next site and are doing everything possible to secure a building by the end of 2016. We are considering both leasing and purchasing property and are also in active discussions with another school about potentially sharing their building, similar to our arrangement now with Mackintosh School.
If you know of a building in Boulder, Louisville, or Superior with approximately 5000 square feet and an outdoor area suitable for a playground please contact Kathy. We hope to find something nearby either Highway 36 or Foothills Parkway for easy access for our families.
Every option is being explored with several real estate professionals helping us.
The board also addressed increasing parent engagement at Hillside and will be contacting parents soon with opportunities to serve on committees to help with our spring fundraiser. If you are interested in helping out, please contact our new Director of Development, Lindsay Eddy.
