BJDS to Close at End of School Year

The Board of Directors of the Boulder Jewish Day School announced today, March 10, 2011, that after careful consideration, the board has decided that the school will formally close at the end of this academic year.  The board issued the following statement:

While there has been generous support from our donors throughout the community, there is insufficient enrollment to continue operations in 2011-2012.

“The board expresses its deepest gratitude to the families, teachers, and donors who have supported the school over the past 16 years.  Funds are still needed to remain open through the end of the school year.  We ask for continued support to ensure as little disruption to our students as possible.

“Please join us for “BJDS Laugh Factory Comedy Night” on Sunday March 20th, 7:30 – 9:00 at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia Ave., Boulder.  Also, please save the date of Sunday April 10th for the BJDS Celebration Event (more details to follow).”

Opinion: Boulder JCC, A Place for Parents to Connect

When the Parenting Place of Boulder closed in 2013, it created a vacuum in the community. Agency board members hoped other organizations would step in to provide classes and services in Boulder County.

  1. Very sad news for the school and the community. Over the years many fine people have done a wonderful job at the school, which, in turn, has graduated great students. I hope the community can re-group and give it another try some day.
