Paw Paw Schools will be closed today, Friday, March 13 as a precautionary measure. Superintendent Reo received information late last night (3/12/2020) stating that a Paw Paw student was recently in contact with someone who is now being tested for the Coronavirus and is awaiting the results. Reo wants to emphasize that there is a high likelihood that the illness is something other than the Coronavirus. But, PPPS decided to err on the side of safety and exercise extreme caution by closing schools today. More detailed information will be sent out to families and staff via email and a School Messenger phone call later this afternoon.
