Drug Dog & Expired Plates


On Monday, March 9, the State Patrol and their two drug dogs were scheduled to do a search of the school. The students were secured in their classrooms. The dogs searched student lockers, the locker rooms, the locker rooms in Lister-Sage, and the parking lot.

We were pleased that the dogs found nothing in the school facilities. However, in the parking lot, the dog did hit on a vehicle. The parent was notified and we are taking appropriate action.

Expired License Plates

I would note that during the drug dog search there were several vehicles with expired license plates. No action was taken on the expired plates today. I would suggest that parents don’t allow their child to drive to school until the vehicles have been properly licensed.

If you have questions or need additional information don’t hesitate to contact the school.

Video Production Class PSA Contest

The Hay Springs Video Production Class has made a Public Service Announcement video and entered it into the Nebraska “Click It, Don’t Risk It PSA Video Contest.” We are asking you to get on Twitter and YouTube to vote on our entry. This contest is a great opportunity for Nebraska high school students to create a :30 second public service announcement (PSA) to creatively express their views on seat belts and why they are important.  Four winners will be chosen, one from each class (Class A, B,C,D) – each winner will receive $2,000, and their PSA will run at a local movie theater in or near its community!  So, go to YouTube and “Like” our video, use the #CIDRI2015 and the #HSHSVideo hashtags on Twitter, and be sure to like and share this post on Facebook.
