Parents: Friday August 28th will be a Digital Day for Hector Schools. It will serve as a practice day for students and teachers using technology as the primary method of instruction. We know we have problems to work through and this will give us guidance on where problem areas are in case we have to close school temporarily for Covid. This will also give us time to deep clean our buildings and buses and give our staff a chance to make necessary changes to classrooms and schedules. Teachers and staff will be on campus but students will not. For questions please call HS office 284-3536 or Elem office 284-3586
The weekly meal distribution for virtual students will be today from 1:00-2:00 at the football field parking lot.
