Out of an abundance of caution, and in alignment with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's order, we have decided to suspend classes at all NHA Michigan schools. Learn more about the closure and food services during this time.

The Board Meeting Notices notify the public of any special, rescheduled, or canceled Board meetings for the current school year, including public Board meetings being held via electronic means.
