School Closures & Delays

School Closures & Delays
School Closures or Delays will appear below:

All Hastings School Sites will be open and operating normally tomorrow - Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 - Please read the message below from Superintendent Collins regarding precautions being taken at our Tilden and JFK Sites. 

Dear Parents,

We have been in discussion with the Minnesota Department of Health and we do plan on having all of our sites open tomorrow.  We cancelled school today- in an effort to be extra cautious and make sure that we are prepared for the opening of school again tomorrow.

We will have bottled water available at Tilden, JFK Elementary, STAARS and our Area Learning Center.  In addition we are covering our sinks so that students will need to use hand sanitizer...or hand wipes that we are providing.  The lunch at JFK Elementary will meet the safety requirements as outlined by MDH.

At 8:00 this evening the results of the water testing are going to be released.  Even if the results come back positive(safe) we still plan on providing bottled water and hand sanitizer for Tuesday at the above mentioned sites.

The District also recognizes that the safety of your child is your choice.  If you choose not to send your child to school tomorrow- we do respect that decision.


Tim Collins, Superintendent
Hastings Public Schools
