As many of you know, with the 2022-23 school year beginning before Labor Day this year, our traditional graduation date fell on Memorial Day Weekend. This allowed the district to survey stakeholders and select a new date - May 19, 2023. Since that announcement was made, the regional track meet location, date, and time were set by this year’s host, Berrien Springs. Unfortunately, the meet has also been scheduled for May 19th. Instead of putting our senior athletes in a position of deciding between running in the finals and their graduation date, we have been forced to shift our graduation ceremony. It will now take place at Ratcliffe Field on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at 2:00 PM. We thank you for your flexibility and eagerness to celebrate the Class of 2023 with us this spring.

Dear South Haven Community, In an effort to make sure that young students are not left at the football game unsupervised, and to avoid blocking traffic at the front gate of Ratcliffe, we have made a few minor changes to the logistics of this Friday’s (10/7) Homecoming Parade. The parade will begin downtown in the public parking area near the intersection of Kalamazoo and Huron Streets (in front of Black River Books). Participants should begin lining up at 5:15 pm. The parade will begin at 5:30 pm. The parade will finish on Prospect Street outside of Ratcliffe Field, across the street from Hartman Historical Society Building, at approximately 5:50 pm. South Haven Police will temporarily close down Prospect Street to allow vehicles to unload their participants and disperse. Parents should pick up their students from Prospect when the parade is finished, and anyone planning on going to the game may enter through the front gate. Admission for the game is $5 per adult and $1 for students. Unaccompanied students will not be allowed admission without a parent or other supervising adult. Thank you.
SHPS Reminder: There will be no school for all students district-wide tomorrow, Friday, September 30th. We hope you enjoy a great weekend and will see you back on Monday!
