    REMINDER: 2nd Virtual Parent Meeting is Tonight, Monday, April 6

    South Haven Parents:

    Now that you have experienced a week of South Haven's Continuous Learning Plan,  the "New Normal", we will be hosting a second virtual School wide meeting for parents and community members. During this time, I will give a brief update on the district's progress and then focus on questions or concerns you may have.

    I hope you will join us on Monday evening at 7 PM. If you are unable to attend this virtual meeting, a recording of it will be posted on the homepage of the school website.

    Dorsey Burgess, Superintendent

    PreSchool Enjoys Pet Unit


    Today was the second time for OPPA to prepare meals for our South Haven students since the district implemented the meal program where meals are picked up, and they were up to the task. 86 Kids received 344 meals for two days! That's up 20 kids from Monday!!! This program is for kids age 1-18 and the child does not need to be attending school in South Haven or live in the district. For more information on how your child(ren) can get involved, see the link in the story to the right.

    Your teachers and staff all miss the students so much, so here's a video to let you know they are thinking about you. Enjoy!

    ACT Cancels all Spring Testing

    ACT has canceled all state contract spring testing. This means no make-up dates are available in April. KSDE is currently working with ACT to allow make-up tests next fall for all juniors who were not able to take the test on February 25. WorkKeys make-up test information is not yet available. At this time ACT is still planning to offer national testing in June and July. KSDE does not reimburse schools for students taking the test on national testing dates.
