HAS Administration Announcement

Dear Holly Area Schools Families,

At Holly Area Schools, we are committed to providing a world-class learning environment that helps our Bronchos learn, grow and thrive. We would like to share the following news with you regarding changes to our administration team to officially take place on Monday, December 4th.

Update on KRC Site Work

You may have noticed exciting changes happening at the Karl Richter Campus as construction/site work is underway in preparation for the future home of the new Holly Middle School. 

One of the biggest changes that visitors will soon notice is the demo of over half of the north parking lot in front of the district offices.  This is one of the phases of the ongoing site work.

Parents and visitors to the district offices will continue to use the parking spots in front of the administration offices.  If there is a need for additional overflow parking, spaces will also be available to the west of the building at the new tennis courts.

Thank you for your continued support.
