Free Lunch/Breakfast for all Students

We are pleased to announce that Harbor Springs Public Schools will be providing free lunch and breakfast to all students regardless of family income. This is because the USDA has extended National School Lunch Program waivers for all schools that participate in the program. The program is effective immediately and will continue until December 31, 2020 or until the funding runs out. Any breakfast or lunches charged to student accounts will be credited back to those accounts.

The program is available to students who are enrolled in face-to-face or online learning, community members 18 and under, as well as individuals receiving special education services up to age 26. Online students (and/or parents) or other non-school community members who qualify may come to the loop at the Middle School daily from 9:30-10:00 AM to receive the lunches.

Middle School Musical, "Into the Woods, Jr." was a huge hit!

Our middle school students, under the direction of Annie Parada, were magnificent as they acted, dance, and sang in the Broadway musical, “Into the Woods, Jr.”  The mystical tale featured a conglomeration of characters and well-known fairy tales.  Great job to everyone in the musical and who helped produce the wonderful performance.  See the video below for a few highlights!

Harbor Springs High School Band earns straight 1's at Festival!

We are proud of our exceptional high school band program where nearly one-third of our students participate.  On February 26, 2020, the band received straight 1’s at Festival – superior ratings – and the highest possible.  Under the direction of Pat Ruddy, the band continues to perform at high standards.  Be sure to check out the short video of our jazz bands performing along side of the well-known Rodney Whitaker Septet!  Click here for the video.
