Reconstruction work begins at Hillview

Phase 1 of the reconstruction of Hillview Middle School has begun on the campus at the corner of Santa Cruz and Elder avenues.

In an interview, Ahmad Sheikholeslami, district director of facility planning and construction, said the first phase will include the removal of the tennis courts, Tinker Park, the basketball courts, the open field and the parking lot.

Mr. Sheikholeslami estimated that Phase 1 will last four or five months, at which time the district will put out another bid for the actual construction of the school.

The goal is to have the work done on weekdays during normal working hours, though there may be "crunch times," Mr. Sheikholeslami told The Almanac. "If we're going to work on Saturdays, we will let our neighbors know."

To contact Mr. Sheikholeslami with questions or concerns, call 321-7140 and press option 2.
