Hay Springs Mask Appears In Map Project

One of the Hay Springs Public School masks made its way to Adams Central High School to be displayed on a map showcasing such masks from across the state!  Please follow the link below to read more about it and see if you can spot our mask!

Subdistrict VB Fan Information

  Masks are also required for everyone attending.

 We will be clearing out the gym after the first match on Monday.  We will let the volleyball teams from Crawford and Hay Springs in, but fans from those two schools will have to wait until we have disinfected everything which will not take very long.  Once that has happened we will open the doors.  That means the end of the season gatherings will not be allowed so please pass the information along.

All games will be broadcast on
