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.

Food distribution will be provided for families of enrolled students at the school, as well as all community members ages 0-18‚Äč.

  • Families may pick up meals from our school between 9 a.m. - 2 p.m., Tuesday and Friday, while supplies last. Please know, we will provide food for weekend days at that time.
