School Security

With the recent school shooting in Connecticut every school district across the nation is reviewing their school safety and security plans.  While Hay Springs and Hay Springs Public Schools is a very safe community and school, precautions still need to be taken to address safety.

Our Board of Education recently reviewed our school safety measures.  Beginning immediately, all exterior doors will be locked at all times throughout the school day.  The main office door is the only entrance into the building. Use front entrance only: We ask all visitors and parents use the front entrance only.  Please do not knock or seek entrance into other school doors.  Students and staff have been instructed not to allow entrance into the building except through the front office door. We have moved the office secretary’s desk to allow her direct vision of the front door.
