Gastrointestinal Illness and School
We are experiencing a gastrointestinal illness outbreak at school with students experiencing nausea and vomiting, sometimes accompanied by diarrhea. Please do not send your child to school if he/she has vomited in the morning before school. These kinds of illnesses are highly contagious.
The Nest Now Has a Take-Out Menu
Check out the new Nest take-out menu on their page under the Athletics/Activities tab on the USD 509 website. They have a great selection for when you don't feel like cooking!
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.

She enjoys doing her friends hair for big occasions such as, homecoming, prom, dances, and also for school sometimes. Karlie was very surprised when she found out she was Miss South Haven Runner-up. Karlie enjoys being a student at South Haven because she feels close to almost everyone in the South Haven Community. When Karlie was asked, what are your plans in the future, she said "Do hair of course, and go to Paul Mitchell in Kansas City, Kansas.' She said that while giggling and smiling as big as possible,just like she always is. Karlie Resendez, is very excited to see what the road ahead of her has in hand for her.
