• Announcement:

    To date, Sturgis Public Schools has had 9 snow days and one 2 hour delay.  The state grants every district 6 days that do not have to be made up.  In order to meet state requirements, we will make up 3 days by adding to the end of the school year.  The final school day for students – at this time - will be Friday, June 13.

     As many are aware, a district must have 75% attendance in order to “count” a day.  To date, we have met that requirement on every day that school has been in session.

     IF there are additional closings or delays after April 1, the state grants additional grace days.  Please understand that adjustments to the end of the school year are still possible.
