At Cedar Springs Public Schools, we want to make sure you are getting the information you need as a student, parent, staff, or community member.  There are many ways we communicate - face-to-face, phone, email, text, newsletters, print, digital, social media, videos, and more! 
 
Be sure to visit our Student Information page to learn how to update important information such as an address, phone numbers, emails, and how to opt-in to receive communications.
 
Below are the main ways we communicate with students, families, and our community.  We also allow our community to communicate with our students by sharing community information with our district.  Additional communication questions can be submitted to Amy McCarthy, Communication Specialist at Amy.McCarthy@csredhawks.org, or 616.696.1204 x1014.
