COVID-19 Information

The district has created a special webpage with information, answers to frequently asked questions, and the latest notices about how the district is responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) event: www.hayscisd.net/coronavirus.

We will continue to use our normal communication channels: email, social media, push notifications on the district’s smartphone app, web alerts, and phone calls (if needed), when we add important information to the coronavirus page. However, this webpage will allow you to easily refer back to previously posted information and to remain current with the latest news on this topic.

The district believes communication and transparency during this event is critical and that nothing is more important than keeping our Hays CISD collective family safe.

  • Wash your hands
  • Cover your coughs with your elbow or a tissue
  • Stay home if you are sick

Calling all parents!! Powder Puff 2020 is just around the corner and your help is needed!

If your family hasn’t participated in Powder Puff, you should! It’s a blast. All grades participate.
