Seamless Summer Option

Seamless Summer Option

We are working on the application for the Seamless Summer Option food program which will allow all of our students to eat breakfast and lunch free again this coming school year.  The application was to open on Monday, August 2nd, I have pasted below the email we received from the Department of Education.  We want to encourage those families that might qualify for free and reduced lunch prices to still apply for the 2021-2022 school year in the case we are not approved for the Seamless Summer Option through the Nebraska Department of Education.


Seamless Summer Option application for SY2021-22

The NDE was hopeful the installation of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) application in the online application & claims system (CNP) would be ready to go on Monday, August 2nd. Unfortunately, that timeline was disrupted and we are unsure about the timeline for opening the SSO application for submission to the NDE Nutrition Services.


What does this mean for you?  

A delay in completing the School Meals Application until the successful installation of the SSO application.


What to expect: The NDE will provide a weekly email update to communicate the status of the SSO application’s installation, which we hope will be completed in the next week or two. Until then, please know that if the SSO application is not installed before your school begins the 2021-22 school year, meals served before the completion, submission, and approval of the SY2021-22 SSO application will be allowed to be claimed for reimbursement. The NDE will also provide a step-by-step guide to support the timely completion of the SSO application upon its availability. This guide will be distributed when the SSO application is ready to access.

Give Back to the Community Day

Looking for those in need of help. Call the school at 638-4434.

In appreciation for the support of our community, the students at HSH would like to “give back” to Hay Springs! We are seeking businesses, groups, organizations, and even the elderly who are in need of help. Teacher supervised groups of students are willing to wash windows, stock shelves, clean shops, rake lawns, and paint walls. We are willing to assist in any way needed.

Our “Give Back to the Community Day” is scheduled for April 28, 2021, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. In the event of inclement weather, there will not be an alternate date. If you would like to be added to our list or have any questions, please call the high school office at (308) 638-4434.

Thanks to our community for all your support!
