Fun Run logoWe are sorry to report that due to the risk of thunderstorms, we are CANCELLING the Hillsborough Fun Run race portion ONLY. We understand kids have been training for the run and that they may be disappointed but due to thunderstorms we did need to cancel the race. We did not make this decision lightly and do believe it is in the best interests of participants and everyone involved to stay off the course given the current weather conditions. We would love for you to join us for breakfast at the North MPR, where you can also pick up your race t-shirt until 10:00am. If you can't pick up your race t-shirt today, please stop by the HSF office at 300 El Cerrito Avenue, Hillsborough Monday to Friday between 9:00am-4:30pm. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

Hillsborough City School District (HCSD)

Recordings from District Meetings Are Available


The Hillsborough City School District is embarking on the development of a Districtwide Facilities Master Plan. At the February meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board approved Quattrocchi Kwok Architects (QKA) as the lead architect for this project. The team at QKA has worked with many school districts within our county and most notably were the architects who designed the San Mateo Performing Arts Center and the San Mateo Union High School District Office. Each HCSD school site will be hosting meetings for parents and educators to give specific feedback which will be used to develop a master plan for that school site.


HCSD will also host informational meetings beginning in mid-April for community input regarding our school facilities, including our athletic fields. If you are interested in attending a meeting please complete this short google form. The community meeting dates will be posted on the district website in the coming weeks or you may contact Karin Bender at kbender@hcsdk8.org or 650-548-4209 for additional details. We look forward to your participation!
