One more week until Spring Break! We do not have school on Friday, April 2 and will have the week of April 4-11 off. In some ways this year feels like the longest ever and in other ways it feels like it flew by! When we get back from Spring Break, we will begin the M-STEP. Please be mindful to not schedule appointments for your kids on their testing days if at all possible! The schedule will be as follows:

5th Grade – April 20, 22, 27, 29

4th Grade – May 4 and 11

3rd Grade – May 6 and 13

Please make sure your child gets good sleep, arrives to school on time, and brings a water bottle. ***** Also note that if your child is ill, we will administer the tests on a make-up date. Please do not send your child to school not feeling well*****

Next Early Release…

Our next early release is on April 23. We will be dismissing at 12:15 on April 23. If your child is a car rider, please be at school between 12:10 and 12:15 for pick up.  Food Service will be offering a sack lunch on early release days.

Vote on Tuesday, May 4…

On May 4, Hudsonville School parents and community members will have the chance to vote on our annual Non-Homestead Millage renewal. This is an annual renewal request that voters have approved for the past 26 years and would generate approximately %5.5 million dollars of operating revenue for our school district. As a reminder, this is NOT a tax on primary residences and is NOT a new tax. Please consider taking the time to vote.

It obviously looked a bit different this year with all of the Covid restrictions, but so glad we were able to keep the tradition going!

Next week will be a busy week as we have parent teacher conferences on Monday the 8th and Wednesday the 10th. These will be held virtually again just as they were in the Fall.
