Grand Haven Area Public Schools is expanding the way we communicate with our parents and community members via e-mail and text messages.

Our district, along with other local agencies like the city of Grand Haven and the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety) have formed a partnership with Nixle Notification System . Nixle is a messaging service offered at no cost to schools and public agencies through a partnership with Nlets, the International Public Safety and Justice Network.

**Please be aware that if you elect to receive SMS text messages you may incur charges depending on your cell phone plan.  GHAPS is not responsible for costs incurred by electing to receive text messages.
