Important Reminders

Winter Weather Recess Update

The snow has officially arrived! Taking our students outside for recess is a very important and favorite part of their day. At Hastings, students have two recesses a day for social development and play. During snow clothes season they will continue to go outside for both recesses, and also have the option of playing in the snow for one of their recesses. For students to play in the snow, they must be wearing snow pants, boots, a jacket, a hat, and gloves! A friendly reminder that if the real feel temperature (with the windchill) is 20 degrees or above we do take the students outside to play. Please help us in making sure they bring warm clothes to school that are labeled for outdoor time. Let the winter recess fun begin!

Term 1 Report Cards

Due to the unexpected weather, the district is changing the dates for report cards. Report Cards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders will be available for families to view through the PowerSchool parent portal on the afternoon of Monday, December 16th. The district will send out an email to families when they are ready for viewing.

Please contact the Hastings office or your child's teachers if you have questions or trouble viewing your child's report card.

Lost and Found Check

The lost and found is overflowing! It is located in the Cafeteria. Please remind your child to check this area for lost belongings before the December break (December 20th). You are more than welcome to stop by and check for missing items as well. We will be donating clothes that are still in the lost found after December 20th. Thank you!
