USD 509 NEWS
Parents - do you want your high school student to be employable after high school? What does that entail? How can you help your student get the necessary work skills? Read about the work ethic certificate offered by South Haven Schools on the High School page under the Schools tab of the website.
This summer upgrades have been made to the safety and security of the school. If visitors or parents come to the school during the school day, they will need to enter the school at the main entrance on the south side. They will push the bell button on the keypad at the right side of the entrance and after identifying themselves will be buzzed into the school. Visitors should use the RIGHT set of doors and not the left. This is a change from what we are all used to. We ask for patience as we all get used to the new system.
Mr Ruhlen would like to invite all 7th - 12th grade students pre-enrolled in band to summer band practice. He would also like to invite ANY south haven student with prior band experience to participate in summer band (even if they are not currently pre-enrolled to take band in the fall). 3:00pm to 4:30pm from August 15th to August 26th.
Mr Ruhlen would also like to invite any 6th grader who took band last year as a 5th grader (or new 6th grade students with band experience) to attend summer band from 4:30pm to 5:30pm from August 15th to August 26th.
If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence. If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person.
If you have any questions, please call the high school office at 620-892-5215 X2.
School will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will dismiss at 3:40 p.m. each day. Parents...please DO NOT send your children to school before 7:45 a.m. Students will not be supervised except from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. when teachers will be on duty.
