Preschool Welcome

Welcome to Preschool!

I am so excited for the school year to start!  We have a lot planned for preschool this year.  Each day we will have outdoor and indoor play and exploration time, group activities like story time, music and movement, as well as individual activities like art.

Each week we will have a different theme such as a letter of the alphabet, season, holiday, and/or social skill that we will focus on in activities and explorations.

Once the school year begins keep an eye out for weekly correspondence regarding our weekly activities and adventures!  One thing I do ask before school begins is to determine a drop off and pick up plan for your preschooler.  Please let me know your child’s plan on the first day of school!  Thanks!

I am excited to see you all on the first day of school!

Students Headed Back

Students will be headed back to school on Monday, August 13th for a half-day of school. All students need to report by 8:00 a.m. and will be dismissed at noon. NO LUNCH will be served!

Preschool – Parents, please walk your child into the preschool classroom using the main office doors.

Elementary – Students are welcome to bring their supplies into their classroom and then head to the playground. A para will be on duty on the playground to supervise prior to school each day.

Middle & High School – Students will report to the auditorium for an assembly. You will receive your locker numbers, planners, class schedule, and other information at this time.

We are looking forward to another great year!

Concussion Testing

To be in compliance with a new Nebraska State law on concussion awareness in high school athletics Hay Springs Schools will be testing ALL student athletes grades 6-12.

This MUST be done before competition or practice, again this is for all sports not just contact sports.  ALL ATHLETES, ALL SPORTS!

Testing will be done:

Monday, August 6th

1:00 p.m.

at Hay Springs High School

The tests, both a cognitive and a spacial test, will be conducted by the physical therapy department for Box Butte General Hospital.

This test will provide a baseline that athletes must meet before returning to play following a concussion.

It will be difficult to schedule a test after this date and may be expensive.  Plan on attending om Monday, August 6th.
