SIDNEY -- Sidney Public Schools is seeking a new director for the Cool Kids Club.

Cool Kids Club had been administered by Kim Hofrock. She accepted the role of third grade teacher for the 2023-2024 school year. As a result, the directorship is open. Without a director, the program is in jeopardy.

In a letter sent to parents July 14, Hofrock said she will train the next director personally. She added that the program is not taking registrations.

"Due to our challenge with finding a director, at this time, we will not be opening school registrations for Cool Kids Club," she said in the letter.

She said she will stay with the program doing the billing for those with an outstanding balance. Families will be notified if the District cannot find a new director by August 1. The District will continue seeking a new director.

The District is advertising an opening for the position through its website. Applications can be made online at, or to District Superintendent Andrew Farber at 308-254-5855, or [email protected].
