Start Time Committee

The Hollis Brookline High School Student Council delivered a presentation to the Hollis Brookline Cooperative School Board on starting the school day later. As a result of that presentation (https://goo.gl/j1rOvq), the School Board created a committee to study the feasibility of a later-starting school day.

CrowdFunding Disclaimer

It has recently come to our attention that a number of fundraising and “crowdfunding” websites (e.g., GoFundMe, DonorsChoose) have been created to raise money for schools, classrooms, extracurricular activities, and other school-related purposes. While we support any effort to give back to the school community and support our students, unfortunately, some of these webpages use the school districts’ name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to get users to make private donations.

If you have any questions about this notice or would like to make a donation to any of the School Districts and/or their programs, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Seeley, Business Administrator, SAU 41 (central office for all Hollis and Brookline schools) at kelly.seeley@sau41.org or 603-324-5999.
