New Principal Announcement

Dear Prairie Hills Community,

Thank you for your engagement in our search for your next principal. Your involvement in the Traits and Characteristics Survey and staff/community Meet the Candidates evening provided insightful and valuable information. I appreciate your willingness to partner with us throughout the second process, as hiring a principal is key to the success of the school.

Please join me in welcoming your new principal, Lauren Tracey!

Lauren brings a wealth of experiences as a teacher and building principal at the elementary and K-8 level in Boulder Valley School District. She has expertise in International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programming, gifted and talented, language acquisition, special education, and understands the importance and inclusion of social emotional learning for students.

Lauren is very excited to join Adams 12 and Prairie Hills Elementary, serving as your principal starting in the fall, 2019. We will work side by side with Mrs. Hastings to create a transition plan and opportunity for all of you to meet her in the spring at various school events. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.


Kari S. Cocozzella

Executive Director of Schools
