Message from the Superintendent: Good afternoon. The following information is NOT a Dowagiac Union event. I am sharing this in hopes of preventing concern or confusion. There is an Instagram and/or Snap Chat post that has been RECYCLED/SHARED multiple times which refers to an event that is supposed to happen on November 15. The statement was scribbled on what appears to be the wall of a bathroom stall. The student that is associated with the original post has NEVER been a Dowagiac student. The statement was NOT in any of our stalls in the district. Have a great afternoon and evening. Jonathan Whan
