Solar Eclipse Early Dismissal Information


After thoughtful consideration and research concerning the upcoming solar eclipse, the decision has been made to release students early on August 21, 2017. This decision was made with student safety being the main consideration. We feel it will be safest for our students to be off the buses and roads during the eclipse.

Our dismissal for parent pick-ups will be as follows:

Berrien Primary School and Berrien High School: 11:30

Berrien Elementary School and Berrien Middle School: 11:45

Berrien Academy and the alternative school: 11:10

Buses will leave our schools thirty minutes earlier than the typical early dismissal day schedule. The bus dismissal times will be as follows:

Berrien Academy: 11:05

Alternative School: 11:10

Berrien Primary School and Berrien Elementary: 11:15

Berrien Middle School: 11:20

Berrien High School: 11:30

Please note that students who ride buses will arrive home approximately thirty minutes earlier than they do on a typical early dismissal day.
