Summer Break Main Office Hours

Summer Break Main Office Hours
Monday-Thursday 9am-1pm

The Elementary Main Office will close for the summer on Wednesday, June 20 and re-open on Monday, August 6. Please contact Kelli Heneghan in the MS/HS main office with questions at heneghank@brpsk12.org or at 616-355-0055 ext.102.

School Security System Update

We are excited to activate the new security system for the Main Building! With the new system, visitors will need to push the call button to the right of the Main Entrance Doors and wait to be greeted then let in remotely by office staff.  The same is true for the Handicap Accessible entrance, Door E in the back of the Main Building with a call button to the left of the doors. This is much like the system that has been in place at the Elementary Building since the spring and there are no changes to that system at this time. We appreciate your patience as we get used to our new procedures. The safety of our students and staff at Black River each day is a top priority.
