We are excited to announce the launch of the Hastings Public Schools’ Facebook Page. As a school district we are always looking for new 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.
