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!


Mask Update

The time has come for the Hay Springs Schools to begin requiring face masks in our High School and Middle level at all times (elementary for right now is just strongly reccomended) when social distancing is not possible by all staff and students. This action is taken in an effort to keep our school open for face to face instruction and keep our students from being quarantined.

Lady Hawks “Thank You”

Thank you to everyone that supported the Lady Hawks volleyball team this season. The team and coaches sincerely appreciated all the support we received at games at home and away! Special thanks to the student body who turned out to all the home games and made a bunch of noise, because a loud gym is a winning gym!  The coaches also need to thank Adriene and Staci for arranging transportation, Ricky for driving for us, Larel for making sure we had a working camera and for live streaming games, Ms. Kudrna for all the little things she did to make sure we had all the information we needed.  I owe a huge thanks to Raime Varvel for driving for us when we needed her and especially for being my bookkeeper. Coach Badje, thank you for everything this year!  I appreciate you more than you know! To all the parents, thank you for entrusting us with your daughters and for cheering us on from the stands. You are raising an amazing bunch of women! Lady Hawks you are engraved on my heart!  I will never forget all your hard work and desire to always be better than the day before and for representing Hay Springs High School with the utmost class!


Sincerely, Coach Merritt


(Disclaimer) If I forgot someone I apologize. Know that you are appreciated!

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 Striv.tv.
