|Text Messaging Service Available to Parents|
12/5/2016 10:46 AM
Hastings Public Schools is continuing to use SMS text messaging as another way to deliver important information to parents.
This service is not intended to replace existing means of communication, but rather to enhance them. The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant.
In order to participate in the new service, you must have a cell phone on file with the School District, and then parents must indicate willingness to receive text messages to their phones. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.Please click above for more information on how to opt into this service.
|Weather Related Closing and/or Delay Information|
11/28/2016 2:59 PM
The Hastings Public Schools website is the fastest and most accurate to find out if the district has closed or delayed their start time.
This is the first place where this information will appear once determination has been made.
By checking the web you can avoid missing our school district listing while watching the television or having to flip through channels because you see Hastings Public Schools listed on one channel but not on another.
In addition, we will continue, as always, to have our closing information announced on KDWA Radio, 1460 AM and Channels 4, 5, 9 and 11.

|Signage on Todd Field Fencing|
7/21/2016 3:31 PM
From time to time, temporary signage is placed on the
fencing at Todd Field. Regrettably, signage hung in that location has to be removed due to
a Minnesota Statue which prohibits temporary signage being placed along a trunk
The removal of this signage, or any signage, which from time to
time, is placed on the fencing at Todd Field, does not indicate disagreement
with the group or cause for which it was created to promote, however, the
district does need to comply with the laws of the State and is required to remove
the signage regardless of the message.
We ask for the community’s cooperation as the school
district continues to adhere to this practice. If you are the owner of
the signage that has been removed and would like to retrieve it so you could use it in another
location, please contact the district office at 651-480-7002.

As a school district we are always looking for ways to
communicate effectively in order to develop and deepen our relationships with
our students, parents, staff and community. As a district we strive to inform, listen
to, and engage the community we serve in order to celebrate, support, and share
the mission of our district. Facebook is just one more tool we will
utilize to make this happen. Like us on Facebook.
|School District Bullying Report Form|

On April 9, 2014 Governor Dayton signed the Safe and Supportive Schools Act. This act required Minnesota school districts to implement a Bullying Policy beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. Our district had had a bullying policy in place for a number of years and the new legislation provided an opportunity for review and refinement.
