So could I use this in the sense of an announcement? For example, "Ayer, di a mis estudiantes un aviso que va a ser un exámen el próximo miercoles." ??

"Haber" es el infinitivo de "hay".

A mi me suena un poco forzado decir "dar un aviso" cuando puedes decir "avisar", pero así es.

(sigh......) This is where I'm reminded that my Spanish has SUCH a long way to go. I still don't understand "hay". (Don't try to explain it to me, please ... it has been attempted and I have not YET understood. I'm going to have to find a chapter in a textbook about it and get some reading done.......)

And I don't really understand what you said next. You're saying that it seems to you to be a bit strong to say "dar un aviso", but I don't understand the last part ... "pero así es". I thought that meant "but it is". So that doesn't make sense to me.

"Hay" is just something you have to learn, like its English translation ("there is").
hay: there is (present)
había: there was / there were
habrá: there will be
habría: there would be
va a haber: there will be
haya: there were to be (subjunctive)

There are other forms (the perfects) but they're pretty rare.

Not "a bit strong" but "a bit forced". Así: thus, like that. Así es: that's the way it is.

Thanks for trying to explain the "haber" stuff. Like I said ... I still don't understand. I'm going to need to find it in one of my textbooks and try to learn it there. Thanks anyway.

As far as the "así es" being "that's the way it is", I know the literal translation of it ... I didn't understand the usage. (I'm not doing a very good job of explaining myself in this thread...) Do you mean that "that's the way it is ...... in the sample sentence" or "that's the way it is ....... because it is often used like that"????

Just to bother: "examen" doesn't carry any accent.
