We sincerely apologize for the late notice. Due to the cold weather we are having trouble with our bus transportation. For K-8 students, if you are not able to get your children to school, it will be an excused absence. High School students should come to the school and we will transport them to Indian Creek.
Due to the forecasted ice and snow, Paw Paw Schools will be canceling the 8th Grade Basketball Tournament tomorrow, January 18th.
Parents/Guardians: With many of our students being absent because of illnesses, we wanted to send out this reminder of the School District’s policy on Attendance as stated in the Student/Parent Handbook. Regular attendance is a key factor for students’ success in school. Students should be absent from school only when absolutely necessary, as classroom activity cannot be made up. Discussions, homework help on assignments and participation are lost to those who are absent. Once a student reaches the limitation of nine (9) absence days (whether excused or unexcused), the District will only excuse absences for illness of the student as documented by a doctor’s note or being sent home by the school nurse/office staff for a qualifying illness (temperature above 100 degrees, vomiting/diarrhea, etc). It is also important to remember that students must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school from a fever or after vomiting/diarrhea. Students will be sent home if they return to school before the 24 hours. This is to ensure the health of other students in the building. Students who are unexcused will not receive credit for classroom work missed. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Eve Phillips, Principal at Paw Paw Schools.
Due to the forecasted ice and snow, Paw Paw School will be canceling the 7th Grade Basketball Tournament tomorrow, January 11th. The girls will still have practice tonight.
