    South Haven School Update

    September 27, 2022

    From Dorsey Burgess

    ­I would like to welcome everyone to the 6th week of the 2022-2023 School year.

    My hat is off to our students and teacher whose schedules were turned upside down as we responded to losing our music teacher at the beginning of the school year.  We are incredibly thankful that Miss Hailey Titus accepted our offer to teach in South Haven. She is now in her 3rd instructional week, serving as our student’s k-12 Band/Vocal teacher. If you haven’t yet met Miss Titus, I encourage find her, and introduce yourself.

    Read the rest of the message, concerning school meals, and cooperative athletic agreements on the Superintendent's page of the website.
