Hay Springs Hawks: Homecoming 2016
Homecoming 2016 will take place the week of September 26-30th. Like every year there are plenty of fun activities planned for the week.
As for the dress up days. We encourage everyone to take part! Both the elementary, middle/high school students will be judged on their costumes. The dress-up days will be as follows.
Monday: Fake an Injury Day
Be creative with this one! Come to school pretending to have a weird “injury”. Arm in a sling, bandaged head, turf toe, who knows? Let’s see who can create the most interesting “injury”!
Monday there also be the ultimate kickball showdown! It will be the freshman/seniors vs. the sophomore/juniors. It will take place at the softball field.
Tuesday: Tacky Clothes Day
Go look through the old trunk in the attic. Maybe your mother was a disco diva, or your father has a suit that looks like it was made from the upholstery of an old Volkswagen? It’s time to wear it to school! Show off your tacky cloths. Most days you want to look your best, today you want to look your worst!
Tuesday will also feature blind volleyball at Lister-Sage.
Wednesday: Hillbilly Day
Channel your inner Hillbilly! Hillbillies know how to have fun, and so do you. Go look through your closest, maybe you can wear a Canadian Tuxedo? (All denim) Overalls, big hats, fake beards! It’s up to you. Come to school and let’s get ready to have a good ole time!
Thursday: Hat & Jersey Day:
Show your school spirit by wearing your Hawk Jersey and maybe a hat. Any jersey might do! Show off your pride on this day!
Homecoming coronation will take place on Thursday at 3:00. The pep rally will follow downtown at 3:30. Students will then walk back to school to be dismissed.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!

Hay Springs Schools Has Made A System Change That Impacts Your Student(s)
The district is offering an online service to help you better manage your child’s school meal account. You now have the ability to check your child’s school meal account balance online, as well as make payments with your credit/debit card.
In addition to helping the school take advantage of the latest technology, this service is a great convenience to you. By utilizing www.EZSchoolPay.com, you will not have to wonder if the check you wrote for meals actually made it to school and your children will be assured that meals will continue uninterrupted.
Features and Options:
- Send payments faster and directly into your child’s meal accounts: Payments are credited within 10 minutes.
- Mobile applications: EZSchoolPay is available from your device’s app store and are available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Receive alerts of low balances, make payments for your child’s meal account, and purchase items from the school store.
- Low Balances: Receive alerts when your child’s balance drops below a certain balance.
If you would like to take advantage of any of the features mentioned above, you must create an online account with www.EZSchoolPay.com. Getting started is easy! The website will guide you to create an account and link your student(s) to the account. To link your students you must first have their student ID provided by the school before entering a credit/payment. When searching for the district just simply enter Hay Springs.
Hay Springs Schools will no longer be sending out monthly bills, instead when your account gets too low you will receive a notification letter. It is your job as the parent/guardian to check your account balance. Please make sure your account does not get into the negative balance, if your account gets to the negative balance of $20 your lunch account will be shut off, meaning your child/children will need to bring a sack lunch. To stay in the positive you will need to pay ahead. Please remember that your lunch account is NOT a charge account, there needs to be money in your account at all times. We will still accept payments to be dropped off at the school office if that is what you prefer.
