Library Information

There is a Google Classroom for our library (code jujldnn) that includes the link to our building collection as well as information about how to write book reviews and use the Camas Public Library.  Weekly posts will feature links to museums and other libraries or videos related to books, reading, and research. 

Mrs. Spencer will be available for office hours communication via email ( or Google Classroom messaging to discuss books, help with writing or technology, or assist with questions about Senior projects.

Prom – Prom has been cancelled due to the closure of school through the end of the year.  

Senior Events – Class of 2020 events are being reviewed.  Senior Family Dessert Night has been cancelled, but we are still putting together a slideshow (look for email on pictures needed).  We are hoping to have a graduation ceremony, but are not sure what this will look like at this point.  It could be a virtual ceremony followed up by an actual one during the summer.  We just are not sure at this time.  This is a milestone and we want to find a way to make it as special as possible for our Class of 2020!

Senior Project – With school being closed for the remainder of the year, there will be a shift in our original timeline. Seniors should be in touch with  their mentors and make plans that prioritize health and safety protocols.  Since each project is unique, each solution will be as well. Please be creative and flexible as you work out a solution that works for you and your mentor while staying safe and healthy.

If you need any help or have questions, email the Senior Project Coordinator, Mark Gardner at

Please contact Mrs. Holmes at if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay healthy, take care and we miss you!




Now Accepting Application for Fall Enrollment

*****We are taking applications for fall 2020 enrollment.  

We Did you know that Hayes Freedom High School is an innovative school of choice for ninth-twelfth grade students?

Hayes Freedom High School was founded on the principle that not all students thrive in a large, comprehensive high school environment. If your student may benefit from any of the following hallmarks of HFHS, she or he might want to get to know us!   Student-Application-website

Hayes Freedom High School offers:
Small class sizes; usually about 20 students per class.
Longer, intensely focused classes; students take three 1:40 core classes with a 30 minute advisory each day. This allows students more time with teachers, time to work on projects in
class, and a deeper understanding of material.
Intentional, project-based learning; Hayes students are encouraged by teachers to approach assignments and projects in creative ways focusing on the learning styles of individual
Strong relationships; with only a maximum of 200 students and ten teachers, students will have the same teachers for several subjects over time. This cultivates a tight-knit community
where students know teachers and teachers know students. Attending Hayes is like joining a family “where everybody knows your name.”

Please call Kristi Thomas at 360-833-5600 with any questions.
