News From the Office…
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. Children can order a lunch with their teacher in the morning and will have them to take to their destination.

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.
