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.

MS Volleyball -- We are only able to get one official for this Wednesday's (9/21) home game and will therefore have to run only one net. Because of this, 7th grade will play Fennville at 4:00, and 8th grade will not play until afterwards, approximately 5:00. Sorry for the confusion.

Dear Sports Parents -- South Haven Athletics wants you to be aware of our new transportation policy. There is a state-wide shortage of bus drivers and we want to make sure we are transparent in sharing our plan for the coming athletic year: TRANSPORTATION POLICY FOR 2022-2023: Recent driver shortages continue to make transportation for athletic events very difficult. In anticipation of continuing shortages, we have modified our transportation policy for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. Whenever possible, South Haven Athletics will transport our athletes by school bus. We believe it is the safest and most convenient option for travel. However, it is very possible that we will not be able to provide busing in some circumstances. Rather than completely leave transportation up to individuals and their parents, when busing is not available South Haven Athletics would like to arrange ride sharing in advance. We will attempt to utilize willing and able parents, coaches and other adults to provide transportation to and from athletic contests. South Haven Athletics will make every effort to organize this carpooling before the season begins. If you are able and willing to assist your athlete’s team, and have a safe driving record, we sincerely appreciate your help. Students may NOT drive themselves to contests. Any parent who is uncomfortable with their athlete riding with another adult always has the option of providing their own transportation. We realize this is not ideal, but South Haven Athletic is dedicated to making athletic transportation as safe and convenient as possible given the circumstances. Thank you.
