Dear Parents and Guardians,
At approximately 4 pm today a water main broke near West Klock and 8th street leaving a large number of homes and businesses in Benton Harbor are without water.
Due to this, Benton Harbor Area Schools (BHAS) will not have class tomorrow at the affected schools. The Discovery Enrichment Center, Martin Luther King Jr., Fair Plain East Elementary, Fair Plain Middle School, Benton Harbor High School, and the Career and Alternative Pathways in Education Center (CAPE) will not have class on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
Although Fair Plain East Elementary and Fair Plain Middle School may have water, many students and educators reside in the city of Benton Harbor. Therefore, those schools will be closed as well. We anticipate school resuming on Friday, October 22, 2021. Thank you for your support of our students and school.
Andraé Townsel, Ed.D.
