March 16, 2020 Update from Dowagiac Union Schools We are still getting mixed messages from the state regarding if schools are required to move spring break. Due to the confusion, we have made the decision to declare that spring break will stay as our calendar shows. Therefore, DUS spring break will begin Friday, April 3 and last until Sunday, April 12. We are planning and hoping that students can return to school on Monday, April 13. If the Governor or Legislators were to mandate that schools must change spring break or face significant consequences, we will cross that bridge at that time. We wish you good health and safety in these uncertain times. #Chieftains United!!
