Dear Parents and Guardians,
After discussions with local city officials, it has been determined that the water system pressure will not be fully restored until at least Friday afternoon.
Due to this, Benton Harbor Area Schools (BHAS) will not have class tomorrow and all services including Central Administration will be closed Friday, October 22, 2021.
Residents can pick up free water on Friday, October 22nd at the Southwest Michigan Community Action Agency (331 Miller St from 10 am-2 pm) and God’s Household of Faith (275 Pipestone Rd. from 2 pm-6 pm).
Residents who cannot visit a distribution site and need emergency water delivery can call the Berrien County Health Department hotline at 1-800-815-5485.
Unless we are notified otherwise, we anticipate school resuming on Monday, October 25, 2021. Thank you for your support and please stay safe.
Andraé Townsel, Ed.D.
