Preschool meeting set


The Chilkat Valley Preschool board will meet at the school 6:30 p.m. Monday to discuss options following a decision by the Haines Borough Assembly to terminate the school’s lease of the Human Resources Building in June.

The assembly’s action follows a recent decision by the Chilkoot Indian Association to drop its plans for taking ownership of the aging building.

Preschool officials say they’re looking for a new site, but a new building must meet certain standards in order for parents of students to receive tuition aid.

The school has been located in the building for about 30 years.
