Signage on Todd Field Fencing
7/21/2016 3:34:26 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 highway. 

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.


Hastings Public Schools and Facebook

  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.
