‘Old Hay’ building may close

November 25th, 2008 by Cory Bergman

The “Old Hay” school building on Boston Ave. may close under new recommendations from Seattle Public Schools. Under the plan, the Secondary Bilingual Orientation Center (SBOC) would move from the Hay building to Meany Middle School. Longtime Queen Anne residents will remember when John Hay Elementary moved out the building in 1989, and the SBOC moved in. And three years ago, a group banded together to refurbish the facility. If the school board approves the recommendations, the building will close, and perhaps like other Seattle school buildings of late, be put up for sale.

Update: Here’s a summary of the recommendations (PDF)
