    UPDATE for 2019-2020: MMS students need to sign up for the Late Bus using the following link or scanning the QR code located in their teacher's classroom by 5pm the day prior to riding the late bus.

    CLICK HERE to Sign Up for the LATE BUS 


    Please take a moment to review our policy for students riding home on a bus with another student:

    • A note is needed from both parties; the student that is going home with a friend AND a note from the friend's parent.
    • Both notes must have a parent signature and a phone number.
    • The campus will contact both parties for verification. Notes can be provided ahead of time for verification.
    • Students will not be allowed to go home with their friend on the bus if we have not had verbal confirmation from both parties.

    If you are unable to receive phone calls at work, please email Beatrice.Garcia@hayscisd.net (front office receptionist) and/or myself James.Cruz@hayscisd.net. You can also text me at 512-698-7007.

    I appreciate everyone’s understanding with this policy. Please let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to assist you.

  • Hays Students and Teachers Earn High Marks; Show Significant Academic Achievement Gains

    Hays CISD teachers and students enjoyed significant gains with the release Thursday by the Texas Education Agency of the 2018 – 2019 accountability ratings, and first-ever official campus letter grades. Hays CISD campuses earned a total of 28 performance distinctions, up from 12 the previous school year. The district’s overall letter grade moved to a ‘B’ up from a ‘C.’ The number of individual campuses earning an ‘A’ doubled from what they would have earned if campus letter grades were officially included in the 2017-2018 ratings. And, for the first time since 2016, no schools in Hays CISD earned an ‘F,’ or its equivalent.

  • Jeri Skrocki Named Head of District Safety & Security

    The Hays Consolidated Independent School District is pleased to announce that Jeri Skrocki has been named the district’s new director of safety and security. This is a position that is dedicated to ensuring students and staff members are prepared for emergencies and that district facilities are safe and secure. The position was created in 2018 in Hays CISD following the tragic school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, and in recognition of the need for the district to employ a senior-level leader who has no other duties besides safety and security management.
