South Haven High School -- get ready to get cozy, festive, and warm!
NOTE TO SPORTS PARENTS: An increasing number of local districts are now requiring masks of spectators and coaches as we move into the winter season. For example, Lakeshore, St. Joseph & Kalamazoo Public Schools will require masks if you travel to an away event next week. South Haven Athletics recommends you plan on bringing a mask to all away events, and asks that you comply with whatever local rules are in place. Thank you!!
