We will have our next meeting on Tuesday, September 21st at 6:00pm in the Later Elementary cafeteria. We would love to see our elementary families well represented in this very important discussion. We have arranged for a virtual link for interested parents and community members who are unable to attend the meeting in person.

Dear Paw Paw Families, As you have likely heard by now, many school districts are experiencing a shortage of bus drivers. While we are not alone in facing this challenge, it makes it no less difficult to share the following news. Beginning Monday, September 13th, we regret to inform you that due to the current shortage of bus drivers, we will not be in a position to guarantee bus transportation for your student-athlete to and from out-of-town athletic events. Your patience and understanding are deeply appreciated as we navigate this unfortunate situation. Please know that every effort is being made district-wide to fill these positions and resume regular transportation. In times like these, we are asking coaches and families to work together to arrange transportation to and from events through carpools and ride sharing. While the school will be able to transport athletes to some events depending upon the availability of drivers and vehicles, school transportation will not be able to be provided for several away events. Families should be prepared to make transportation arrangements for individual contests based on communications from the athletic department or coaches. Let’s show our students, by example, how we face and overcome adversity. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you informed as we resolve this situation. Stephanie Walker Director of Operations & Finance
On behalf of Paw Paw Public Schools, thank you to all of our local heroes who serve and and protect us every day! #PawPawProud

Good Afternoon Paw Paw Families, This is Stephanie Walker, the Paw Paw Public Schools Director of Business Operations. I hope everyone had a great first week of school! Due to some of the buses running behind in the morning from construction in the area, we will be moving up a few bus routes by 10 minutes on Tuesday, September 7th. The Butterfly, Frog, Monkey, Bunny and Eagle will be moved up by 10 minutes in the morning ONLY. For example, if your current pick up time is 8:00 am it will be adjusted to 7:50 am. Thank you for being patient as this will allow us to get all the kids to school in a timely manner.
Congrats to the Boys MS X-Country Team for kicking up the dust and busting the rust, taking 1st place in the Rustbuster Invitational today.
