HMS Facilities Master Plan
Date posted - March 14, 2013
The HMS school board presented to the district this week their plan on what the future of the district may need.
There are 4 options given:
1. Do nothing and maintain all three buildings in each community.
2. Close the Sanborn building and fix the elementary and build on at the High School in Hartley.
3. Close the Elementary in Hartley and fix the school in Sanborn and add on at the High School in Hartley.
4. Close both the Elementary in Hartley and the Middle school in Sanborn and build a K-12 addition to the High School in Hartley.
All these options are millions of dollars ranging from 8 to 19.
The Sheldon district has gone through some of these decisions in the past, what should be expected if a town like Sanborn would close its only public school?
And what other options should be considered?
