2021 Bond Updates

After months of finalizing behind the scene financials, perfecting project designs, and securing quality contractors, South Haven Public Schools is eager to move into the construction phase of the 2021 Bond Project, generously approved by voters last May. Soon construction trailers will set up shop and the visible work will begin. This initial stage of work focuses on Ratcliffe Field, our baseball/softball/tennis complex at the high school, and excavation at the Aylworth site. A lot of planning has gone into the project and it will be nice to move some dirt and see the improvement process firsthand. Thank you to the South Haven Community for your support and confidence!
