Have a good weekend!

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. Children can order a lunch with their teacher in the morning and will have them to take to their destination.
Vote on 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.
