If there is a change in your student’s transportation, the office must be notified via a note, phone, or email. Students without proper notification will be sent home the way that they would under normal circumstances.
If you have a transportation issue after 3:00 pm, the transportation department can be reached at 269-756-7899.
According to our attendance procedures, it is important that families contact the school when students will be absent along with the reason for the absence. Please remember to give your child’s school office a call in the morning if they will not be in school.
