GHHS to dismiss school early for girls' semifinal game at Breslin on Friday

GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP - Grand Haven High School students will have a safe travel option to see the Buccaneers' girls basketball team play in the Class A semifinals in East Lansing on Friday. Principal Scott Grimes said students will have the option of taking a bus to watch the game at the Breslin Center, located on the campus of Michigan State University. In order to make sure students have the opportunity to see the 1 p.m. game, classes at the high school will be dismissed at 10:50 a.m., he said.

"Our students will go to all their classes in the first half of the day," Grimes said. "We have enough instructional time built into our schedule that we don't have to make that up."


The buses will leave at 10:15 a.m. to make the two-hour trip, he said. While he isn't sure how many have signed up so far, the school has sold out all of its 200 tickets to the game, Grimes said.


But fear not: there are plenty more to be had.


"It's such a large venue that it's not going to be an issue," Grimes said.


Students will pay $10 each to ride the bus, which includes an $8 ticket to the game. The cost to the school will be covered by other students, Grimes said.


"We have student groups, like the Student Senate, that are going to pick up the difference," he said.


The school has also run spectator buses to weeknight games, Grimes said.
