Parent Access In Schoology

Happy Monday! Wishing all my pinner friends a great week! #MondayMotivation  #HereWeGoAgain #Pinspiration www.happy… | Happy monday quotes, Monday  wishes, Happy week

Good Morning Miller Families,

The district has created parent accounts in Schoology for all parents that have a valid email address in MiStar. 

Here is some information that I hope helps:

Parents go to a different URL than students. 

Parents will go to https://app.schoology.com  Students (and teachers) will still go to https://dearbornschools.schoology.com

Once the parents login in, they should change their password. (Their user name will be the same as their Parent Connect user name with a P before the number. Thus, if their Parent Connect user name is 1234567, their Schoology user name will be p1234567)

There is a post with information for parents on the Home Learning Hub . 

Parents without an email address in MiStar – If a parent does not have an email in MiStar, we need to add an email into MiStar (please note that this must not be a duplicate email address). Adding to MiStar can be completed by a school secretary or the parent can add an email through ParentConnect. 

Schoology also has a Parent Guide available to support you and your questions. One of the most important topics is Parent Notifications. You can choose how and how often you are notified by Schoology. 

We value your participation in your child’s education, and we encourage you to read Schoology’s Privacy Policy & Terms of Use at  https://www.schoology.com/privacy. Student progress and activity will be monitored by faculty to ensure a safe, secure, and controlled environment. 

All Parent Accounts are based on the information provided in MiStar during registration. An email will be sent to all of the Parent email addresses that we have on file. The email will include a link to Schoology, a user name and a password.

Office of the Superintendent

Greetings, 

To say that we have faced a year filled with challenges is quite the understatement. However, in our nation’s history, we have faced many trying times and devastating tragedies. It’s been almost 20 years since the horrific attacks occurred on the morning of September 11, 2001. It was a day that we, as a nation, had not experienced in many, many years.  

We watched in disbelief as almost 3,000 Americans died and more than 6,000 were injured. We hailed the heroes who risked their own lives to save their fellow citizens, some never to return home to their families. And at the end of the day we stood together, as one America, to mourn the loss and pray for healing.  

There is no way to measure the total impact or magnitude that an event can have on our nation and it’s impossible to compare one tragedy to another.  Instead, we must look at how we, as a people, work to overcome and heal from the scars left by these terrible events.  

Right now, we are a nation in the midst of a global pandemic, once again engaged in efforts to overcome inequality and injustice, and experiencing feelings of division and uncertainty. In the weeks, months, and years that followed the 9-11 tragedy our nation worked to be better. We made an effort to thank and appreciate our first responders; we turned a day of darkness into what is now a day of service and giving; and we never forget the resilient spirit of all Americans. 

Traditionally on this day we pause as a district to remember and honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.  Today, I ask all of you to take a moment on your own to pause and reflect on the events of that day and honor the memory of those who perished in New York, Washington D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania.  I ask that we also take a moment today to remember those who have had to overcome their own personal tragedy brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Despite the darkness that occasionally falls upon our land, the sun continues to shine it’s light on our great nation.  Just as we never forget the events of September 11th, let us never forget our ability to overcome, persevere and come together as one nation. It is this strength, the American strength, that will see us through all that lies ahead.   

Regards, 

Glenn Maleyko, Ph.D.

Superintendent

Mustang Memo

Week of September 8, 2020

Dear Miller Families,

Once again, welcome to the 20-21 school year, one that is sure to be remembered! We have been on quite a wild ride since last March. I hope you and your family were able to find some peace among these unprecedented times this summer and are relaxed and ready for our new adventure.  As you know, all students are beginning full day of remote instruction on September 8, 2020. 

Daily Schedule: 

Our daily schedule has been created to ensure that students in all grades have similar learning experiences and consistent daily schedules. As we worked on our schedule some of the things we considered were: consistency across grade levels, flexibility in learning, and balanced screen time.  Please use the link below to review the full schedule:

FOOD DISTRIBUTION AT MILLER

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD

10:30 A.M.-1 P.M.

Student information will NOT YET be required*

Free weekly meal distributions will continue after school starts
online this month and will expand to more school locations.
However, the program will have some changes, including requiring
proof that the recipients are Dearborn Public School students.
Thursday, Sept. 3, will be the first day for the new school-year
program. Parents or other adults still will be able to pick up a
week’s worth of lunch and breakfast items for students. The adult,
though, will need to provide the name, school, and student ID or

Brown paper lunch bags marked me as a New Yorker, an outsider

student number for each student receiving a meal pack.
Parents are encouraged to pre-order meal pickup through
the Nutrislice website or app. This will allow them to enter the
student information once for the year. The software will remember
the information the next time the adult goes to pre-order. (Here are
directions for ordering online.) If they don’t pre-order online, the
adult will have to provide the information at pickup. The meals will
continue to be free to Dearborn Public School students. After the
first week, weekly meal packs will be distributed on Fridays, starting
with Friday, Sept. 11. Meals will be available for pickup from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each
week at Bryant Middle School, Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford
High School, Fordson High School, Henry Ford Elementary, the
Dearborn Heights Campus (Howe/STEM/Berry Center), Lowrey
School, Maples Elementary, McCollough-Unis, McDonald
Elementary, Miller Elementary, Salina Intermediate, Smith Middle
School, Stout Middle School and Woodworth Middle School.
At most locations, adults will be able to stay in their vehicles and
pull up to have food loaded in their car. Families that pre-order will
be able to use a special designated line. Student meals can be
collected from any building, even if the child attends a different
school
Dearborn Public Schools began offering free food distribution in

Milk carton ink drawing | Royalty free vector - 1200269

March just days after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered schools to
close to slow the spread of COVID-19. Food distribution was
initially funded under emergency provisions of the School Lunch
Program. Food distribution continued over the summer through a
separate federal summer nutrition program, which will end in
Dearborn with the distribution on Aug. 27. Neither of those
programs required the district to collect student information. With
the restart of school, though, Dearborn Public Schools now is
required to link each meal to a district student in order to be
reimbursed through the National School Lunch Program. Each meal pack will contain a breakfast and a lunch for each day of school that week. Most packs will have 10 meals (five each of breakfast and lunch), but some weeks may be smaller due to days off school.
The district has been distributing more than 60,000 meals a week and has handed out more than 1.25 million meals since the shut down in March.
“We are glad Dearborn Public Schools is able to continue to
distribute free nutritional meals to our students,” said Jeff Murphy,
director of food services. “We know this service is important to
many of the families who participate.”

Dearborn Virtual Learning Program

Greetings Miller Families,  

I hope you are all doing well, staying safe and enjoying your summer! We miss you!

On Monday, August 10 the Board of Education approved a plan for all Dearborn Public School students to return to school on-line. Students from kindergarten through high school will take classes online at least until sometime around the beginning of October.  The board will reevaluate conditions later in September to see if it is possible for some or all students to begin returning to their classrooms perhaps in a blended model of in-class and on-line learning.

The District understands there are parents who want their children in a 100% virtual learning program no matter what phase the State is in or how other students in the District are attending school.  For the parents who want a 100% on-line option for the entire school year, the school district has created the Dearborn Virtual Learning Program for students K-12.  Parents selecting this option are opting their children into the program for a one-year commitment. 

In order to meet staffing, transportation, and several other components of our new school environment, it is vitally important to know how many students will join the Virtual Program. Parents seeking more information and/or are interested in opting their child(ren) into this program are highly encouraged to visit our school on date and time.

School administrators and office staff will be on hand (social distancing, limited numbers, and masks will be enforced) on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 from 9:00-2:00 to meet with parents. If you have children at different grade levels and buildings, you do not need to attend meetings at multiple schools.  Opt-in forms will be available and parents can opt-in all their children at one location. Here is a link to the complete schedule of schools and meetings.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SdFISdKk-c1Lbkz7Vj5irylxEkqJOKZy2J3HJGvJ_tI/edit#heading=h.e1437s49s5yw.

If you are not comfortable meeting in a safe environment at the school or are unable to attend on one of the scheduled days, please call or email the school so we may discuss this option and begin the opt-in process for your children.

We understand there are many questions, concerns, and uncertainties as we approach the start of the school year.  Our Back to School Reopen Committee has spent many hours considering all of the health, safety, logistical, and educational concerns before making their recommendations. Our Board spent many hours reviewing those recommendations including a six hour Study Session to hear from the various sub-committees and stakeholders.  We are now ready to move forward, together, to ensure what will be an interesting, but great, start to the 2020-21 school year. 

Stay safe Mustangs!

Mrs. Abdulla

Miller Elementary Principal

Mustang Pride Decal - Mustang Mascot College School High School ...
Proud to be A Miller Mustang!

Dear Miller Families,

It is with tremendous pride and enthusiasm that I write this letter as the newly appointed principal and instructional leader of Miller Elementary.  I have served the Dearborn Public Schools since 2008.  I began my journey as an interventionist then a bilingual resource teacher at Oakman Elementary.   After eight years at Oakman, I was fortunate enough to start my administrative internship at Miller Elementary and Woodworth Middle School.   

I have lived my entire life in Dearborn and I am a former graduate of Edsel Ford High School.  I earned an Education degree from the University of Michigan – Dearborn, my Masters in Education from Wayne State, and my Administrative Certification from the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals Path to Leadership Program. I have been married for eighteen years and my husband and I are the proud parents of three amazing children. 

My journey with the Dearborn Schools has been a rewarding one in many ways and cultivating life-long relationships with students, staff, and families has been the most rewarding part of it all.  Along with the teachers and staff at Miller, we will continue to build strong purposeful relationships with you, your children and our community partners.

For the last three years, I have had the pleasure of serving at Miller Elementary as the assistant principal.  In those years, I have become a part of the rich culture and inspiring educational experience that Miller offers the students, families, and staff. As an established member of the Miller family, I can say with great pride that I am honored to lead this community.  At Miller, we are committed to a school experience that ensures a safe, nurturing, and academically enriching environment in which each student can attain academic and social success through the collaboration and commitment of our students, teachers, parents, and community.

A strong partnership amongst all stakeholders is a key component to the successes of each of our students.  As the principal, it is important to me that every person who comes through our doors knows that they are part of this community, and that they play an important role in the education of the students who attend Miller. This is essential to the positive and supportive environment that is necessary in our efforts to create the ideal learning platform for our students.

I am excited to continue to work with all of you this school year!  Enjoy the remaining time of the summer and I look forward to welcoming you back to the start of the 2020 – 2021 school year!

Your Partner in Education,

Amal Abdulla

Miller Announcements – Week of June 8, 2020

Good Evening Miller Families,

Hope all are well and hope you enjoyed the beautiful day!

As we enter the final week of the 2019 – 2020 school year Team Miller welcomes the opportunity to again thank each of you for the steadfast support and teamwork throughout the year.  As a result of your communication and teamwork Miller’s Learning Community is stronger today than it was yesterday and we thank you.  A BIG congratulations and GREAT job to Miller Elementary Students of the Month for May!

Materials distribution and collection on Thursday was a great success, it was great to see all the students and parents who participated.  Of the 654 students attending Miller we were left with 40 bags of student materials.  If students have classroom materials that need to be returned please drop them off in the boxes by the main door with a note listing students name and teacher.  Families who have not picked up materials will be contacted tomorrow and required to pick up materials between 10 – 2 P.M.  If materials are not picked up, they will be recycled and donated.

Ms. Mikho distributing materials
Our amazing staff!
Mrs. Whalen gets a nice surprise.
Ms. Taleb has gifts ready for her class.
What a sweet treat from Ms. Burgess!

I-Ready Reading Diagnostic window opens tomorrow June 8th, 2020, all Miller students are required to take the reading diagnostic for proper reading placement.  Upon logging in students will automatically begin the diagnostic and will not begin instructional lessons until the diagnostic has been complete. It is critically important students complete their own work and receive no assistance, doing so ensure they are assigned the proper reading lessons over the summer months. While taking the diagnostic students should take their time, read the question carefully and believe in themselves!

5th Grade Ceremony, Team Miller will be celebrating 5th Grade transition to middle school this Tuesday June 9th, 2020 beginning with Ms. Alsabahi’s class at 1 P.M. The ceremony is exclusive to fifth grade students and their parents. The ceremony will take place in the bus drop off near the North side of the building. Event details were previously shared and a flyer is attached. We look forward to a special celebration with Miller 5th grade students and their families.  

It has been a wonderful year, albeit a year filled with uncertainty and a new normal of life for many. Thank you, Miller Community, for the patience and commitment to children during these most unprecedented of times.  Team Miller prays for and looks forward to a fantastic 2020-2021 school year.

Please review a message from Dr. Maleyko: Superintendent Maleyko’s message

Wishing you and yours a restful summer break!

Respectfully,

Team Miller

Parents can preview possible curriculum changes

Dearborn Public Schools is offering a chance for parents and community members to explore two new curriculum resources the District is recommending for next year – one for elementary English Language Arts and the other for some high school math. Both curriculums provide extensive digital resources that are available for school and home use.

Interested parents can view some of the materials online and then learn more about the resources during online meetings on Monday for the elementary program and Tuesday for the math program.

Both curriculum resources have gone through extensive evaluation by Dearborn teachers and have been recommended by the District’s curriculum committee. This is part of the District’s regular process to update and implement new curriculum.  Please note, these changes have not yet been approved by the Board of Education.

Elementary Reading and Writing 

Elementary parents are invited to learn more about the Benchmark Advance English Language Arts program that the District is considering for all the kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms.

Language arts includes reading and writing and also impacts text-based resources for science and social studies.  The Benchmark program provides lessons and practice in all areas of reading including phonological awareness, phonics and word study, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.  Writing is also included.

Dearest Miller Families,

Team Miller sending their love and well wishes to all with hopes you are well, safe and taking care of one another. With Ramadan entering its final week, we send blessings to all celebrating Eid this coming weekend.

Critically important students remain engaged in virtual learning and completing classroom lessons DAILY.  We are relying on our parents to be the bridge between school and home by continuing to monitor and assist students with completion of learning tasks.  At minimum students should be checking and completing assignments posted on Teacher’s Google Classroom, reading every day twenty minutes via i-Ready.   Students choosing not to engage in virtual learning will be REQUIRED to attend Summer School and are at risk of repeating the grade!

Administrators will be coordinating with the PTA and Miller Staff to schedule virtual grade level parent meetings aimed at discussing end of the year questions and listen to parent concerns and recommendations, your active engagement and feedback would be appreciated, meeting schedule and guidelines forthcoming.  Distribution and collection of student materials will take place the first week of June, summer learning materials, supplies and students’ personal belongings will be distributed while classroom and library books collected.

All Miller families should have received a PEBT Food Card, attached is an informational question and answer sheet to assist and guide parents with use of this valuable resource.

Kindergarten Round Up Power Point is currently being translated and will be posted on the school website later this week. Links to District and Miller websites attached, continue providing the most up to date information, please make a point to check regularly. Gleaners Food Bank distribution is scheduled for June 2, 2020, please plan accordingly.

Meal Distribution Update

Dearborn Public Schools families are reminded that the meal distribution schedule will have a few changes starting the week of May 18 – the week before Memorial Day.

Because schools were scheduled to be closed on Friday and Monday for Memorial Day weekend, there will be no food distribution on May 22 and 25.

Meal distributions will still occur on Monday May 18 and on Wednesday May 20.  The May 20 distribution will include breakfasts and lunches for a full week, so families should be prepared to carry the larger quantity, including a half gallon of milk per student.

Through May 20 pickup times will continue to be later at four locations. Fordson High School, Woodworth Middle School, Salina Intermediate and McCollough Elementary will distribute meals from noon to 2 p.m.

Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School and Smith Middle School will hand out meals from 10 a.m. to noon.

The week after Memorial Day, meal distribution will go back to 10 a.m. to noon at all seven locations. Meals that week will be distributed on Wednesday, May 27 and Friday, May 29.

Dearborn Public Schools has been providing 65,000 grab-and-go meals a week for our students.

One person can pick up food for any student living in the home.  The child does not need to attend that school.  Each bag contains breakfast and lunch for the days until the next pickup.

The grab-and-go meals are provided free to families through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Through the program, Dearborn Public Schools offered free lunch and breakfast to all kindergarten to 12th grade students before schools were closed to slow the spread of novel coronavirus.

Meal distribution schedule:

May 11, 13, 15, 18 and 20

Meals distributed from 10 a.m. to noon at Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School and Smith Middle School and from noon to 2 p.m. at Fordson High School, Woodworth Middle School, Salina Intermediate and McCollough Elementary.

Meals distributed from 10 a.m. to noon at all seven locations.

Teacher Appreciation Video

Dear Miller Families,

Thank you to those who sent pictures and videos to show your appreciation.

This video is dedicated to our teachers to show them how much we value and appreciate them. Our teachers dedication and selflessness are the reasons we have been able to continue educating our students during these difficult times. This is just a simple token of our appreciation. We hope you enjoy it!

Superintendent Virtual Visit Video

Dearborn Public Schools. COVID-19 May 1, 2020 Update. Dr. Glenn Maleyko, Dave Mustonen and Executive Director of Staff & Student Services Maysam Alie-Bazzi recognize how Dearborn employees have gone above and beyond during this crisis and discuss some of the ways that the Human Resource Department is helping them.

Teacher Appreciation Week!

This week is a VERY special week. It is a week that we show our teachers how much we value and appreciate them. While this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week is taking place during some of the most unforeseeable circumstances our district has ever faced, our teachers dedication and selflessness are the reasons we have been able to continue educating our students during these difficult times. Completely adapting to remote learning the way our teachers did proves that they are not just teachers…. they are our superheroes!!

Please help us celebrate this week and send all photos to Mrs. Abdulla at abdulla@dearbornschools.org!

Message From the Principal

Greetings Miller Families,

Hopefully all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Team Miller THANKS all our parents working diligently to assist their child with virtual learning and their classwork. Miller Parents always go above and beyond and remain the change we seek within our community. This week Office Staff and Administrators will be following up with students who are choosing NOT to participate in online learning.  Parents will be contacted, hard copies of learning materials delivered to the home along with supplies to complete assignments.  Students not engaging virtually will be expected to complete and submit all assignments to the Miller Office no later than June 8, 2020.  Students not completing online learning are placing themselves in jeopardy of beginning next school year significantly behind in all academic areas and will be required to attend Summer School.       

Updates

·         All Dearborn Public Schools Families will receive additional food assistance via funds being added directly to Bridge Cards or mailed to families directly, please review details at:

https://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,4615,7-140-7083-525248–,00.html

·         May is Teacher Appreciation Month…please take a moment to reach out and express gratitude for the wonderful teachers at Miller Elementary.

·         Last week we distributed an additional 85 Chromebooks to Miller students

·         Attached is a list of April Students of the Month, a GREAT JOB for Miller students continuing to exemplify all around EXCELLENCE!

·         GLEANERS Food Bank at Miller Elementary Tuesday May 5, 2020 at 11 a.m.

Team Miller remains committed to meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of our community, this may only be accomplished with the help and feedback from our wonderful parents.  Please continue reaching out to Staff and Administration with any questions and concerns and THANK YOU for being remarkable during these unprecedented times.

Food Distribution Time Change Begins Today!

Dearborn Schools adds seventh site for free breakfast and lunch ...

Student meal distribution times to change at four sites during Ramadan

Ramadan starts this week and Dearborn Public Schools is adjusting the student meal distribution times at four sites to better accommodate our families who are observing that tradition.

Free student food distribution will continue at all seven schools on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

However, starting Friday, April 24 the pickup time will shift later to noon to 2 p.m. at Fordson High School, Woodworth Middle School, Salina Intermediate and McCollough Elementary. The later schedule will continue through Memorial Day weekend, when Ramadan ends this year.

Food distribution will stay at 10 a.m. to noon at the three other locations- Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School and Smith Middle School.

Families should also note that the distribution schedule will change the weeks around Memorial Day weekend.  The week before Memorial Day, the District will distribute food on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday – May 18, 20 and 21.  Friday May 22 is scheduled to be a day off for staff and students.  The week of Memorial Day, food distribution will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday – May 26, 27, and 29 and move back to 10 a.m. to noon at all seven schools.

Dearborn Schools families can pick up meals at any location.  Their child does not need to attend that school.  The meals are for any child under 18 living in the home. Each bag contains breakfast and lunch for a student for the days until the next pickup.  Monday and Wednesday bags each have two days of food, and Friday has three days worth.

The grab-and-go meals are provided free to families through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Through the program, Dearborn Public Schools offered free lunch and breakfast to all kindergarten to 12th grade students before schools were closed to slow the spread of novel coronavirus.  Last week, the District distributed 65,000 meals through the program.

The grab-and-go meals will continue at least through June 10, which was scheduled to be the last full day of school for the year.

Day 1 of our virtual spirit week was AMAZING!! So many parents and teachers sent in pictures of students beaming with MILLER PRIDE!! Check out some of our Mustang spirit below:

Thank you parents for sending in the photos. Keep that Miller spirit going all week long (and beyond)!

Breakfast/Lunch Distribution

Dearborn Schools adds seventh site for free breakfast and lunch ...

The free breakfast/lunch distribution continues today, Monday, starting at 10:00 am to noon at Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools; McCollough/Unis; Salina Intermediate; Smith Middle School; and Woodworth Middle School. The program will only be handing out food three days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 
Each food bag will still contain both breakfast, lunch and milk for a child under 18, but now the bag will have food for each day until the next distribution.

The Dearborn Schools student does not have to attend that school to be eligible for a meal. A designated person can pick up meals for multiple children.  The student does not need to be present.

Thank you and have a safe day!

VIRTUAL SPIRIT WEEK @ MILLER

Good Morning Miller Families,

Even though we are at home we can still show our MILLER PRIDE and stay united! We will be posting pictures and we want to see you. Send us your AWESOME PHOTOS showing your school spirit each and every day this week!

Playgrounds Closed

Dearborn Recreation Department Changes Scope of Summer Park Games ...

During the State of Michigan mandated shut down, all Dearborn Public School facilities, including playgrounds, and athletic fields, will be closed to the public. Please do not attempt to go onto the fields or access the playgrounds.  If you are found on the property you will be asked to leave.  

The Governor has ordered that we all shelter in place.  This is not a recommendation or suggestion. This action is being taken to help in the effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to mitigate the number of people becoming sick. Hospitals in southeastern Michigan are being overwhelmed and are reaching the point where they are unable to meet the needs of those arriving for care. We must all do our part to help slow the spread of this virus and remain at home!  

The Governor did say that it is ok to go for a walk, run, or bike ride. However, we can not gather in groups at local parks or playgrounds.

We look forward to the day, hopefully in the not too distant future, when our facilities will once again be open to the public and we can all return to our regular routines. The District appreciates all of the support that the Dearborn community has shown and the tremendous amount of community spirit that has been demonstrated during this very difficult time.  Together we will get through this, one community, #DearbornStrong!

صباح الخير،
بحلول عطلة نهاية الاسبوع وعلى الرغم من أن توقعات الطقس تبين هطول الامطار ، إلا أننا جميعًا نحب
الخروج واستنشاق بعض الهواء النقي. هذا صحيح بشكل خاص خلال هذا الوقت من العام عندما تبدأ درجات
الحرارة في الارتفاع ونمضي الكثير من الوقت في الداخل
يعتقد الكثيرون أنه قد يكون من الجيد أن يخرج الاطفال للعب مع صديق واحد أو اثنين. للاسف ،لا يجب
علينا القيام بشيء كهذا في هذا الوقت. المعركة لوقف انتشار فيروس كورونا 19 COVID مستمرة  والتجمع
في مجموعات صغيرة ، حتى في الخارج. ، في الحديقة الخلفية  أمراً مرفوضاً لا يمكننا القيام به.

أثناء اغلاق ولاية ميشيغان ، سيتم إغلاق جميع مرافق مدارس ديربورن الرسمية أمام العامة، بما في ذلك الملاعب ، والصالات الرياضية. من فضلكم، لا  تحاولوا الذهاب إلى الملاعب الخارجية أو الوصول إلى الملاعب  الداخلية. إذا تم العثور عليكم في أي جزء من ملكية المدارس سيُطلب منكم المغادرة.
لقد اصدرت حاكمة الولاية امراً بأن نلزم منازلنا جميعاً. هذه ليست توصية أو اقتراح.
 يتم اتخاذ هذاالاجراء  لتعزيز الجهود المبذولة لابطاء انتشار فيروس 19-COVID والتخفيف من عدد الاصابات..
 تعاني المستشفيات في جنوب شرق ميشيغان من الاكتظاظ وقد وصلت إلى النقطة التي لن تكون قادرة فيها على
تلبية احتياجات أولئك الذين يصلون للحصول على الرعاية. يجب علينا جميعًا القيام بدورنا للمساعدة في
إبطاء انتشار هذا الفيروس والبقاء في المنزل!
قالت الحاكمة أنه لا بأس بالقيام بنشاطات مثل المشي أو الجري أو ركوب الدراجة. ومع ذلك ، لا يمكننا
التجمع في مجموعات في الحدائق المحلية أو الملاعب.
نتطلع إلى اليوم ، ونأمل أن يأتي هذا اليوم في المستقبل القريب ، الذي يعاد فيه فتح مرافقنا مرة أخرى للعامة
وعودتنا جميعاً إلى روتيننا المعتاد. تقدر المقاطعة كل الدعم الذي أظهره مجتمع ديربورن والتعاضد العظيم.
والتحلي بالروح الواحدة التي ظهرت خلال هذا الوقت العصيب. معًا سنتجاوز هذا كمجتمع واحد ، # ديربورن
قوية.

Message From Our District:

Greetings,

All Dearborn Public Schools will be closed for students effective immediately, March 13, 2020. This is a result of Governor Whitmer’s order to close all K-12 school buildings, public, private, and boarding, starting Monday, March 16 until Sunday, April 5.

Dearborn Public Schools spring break will take place from Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 10. Students will return to school on Monday, April 13, 2020.

Students may report on Friday, March 13, 2020 at the normal start time to pick up their belongings and school supplies.

All staff should report on Friday, March 13, 2020 to assist students. Staff will only attend for the morning half of the day followed by a half day release time.

As of Thursday, 3-12-2020 there are no reported or confirmed cases of COVID 19 in the Dearborn Public Schools.

This closure of schools is part of a nationwide effort to slow the spread of the COVID 19 virus. These actions will not eliminate the COVID 19 virus, cure COVID 19, and this will not guarantee that a person will not contract the COVID virus at a later time. Again, these actions are part of a nationwide effort to slow the spread and limit the number of people who will become infected.

Thank you.

Election Day Message

Greetings, 

With the March 10th primary election just around the corner, I thought it might be helpful to share a few thoughts regarding the safety and security of our schools.  

Changes in the Wayne County common calendar, and our obligation to follow that calendar, have resulted in November elections becoming a Professional Development (PD) day for all school districts and perhaps adding another PD day every four years in March might be part of a future conversation. For now, our district, along with just over half of the other districts in Wayne County, will be open on March 10th just as we were during the 2016 primary election. 

For those schools where voting will occur, there will be a bit of change in the daily routine. Principals and engineers have plans in place that will ensure a minimal amount of disruption but it will require a little patience from all of us.

As for the safety and security of schools, please know that myself and others have been in touch with the City Clerk’s office and Dearborn Police. Our City Clerk is a long time supporter of the Dearborn Public Schools and he too understands the balance between running a smooth election and keeping schools safe.  His office is estimating about 12,000 to 15,000 people voting at about 50 different precincts scattered throughout the city. That works out to an average of 300 people stopping by each voting location (actual numbers will vary by location but some polling locations may have fewer voters due to changes in absentee voting laws that have made the process easier and accessible to a larger number of voters).  As with most elections, the busiest times will occur in the morning between 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. and then again between 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. 

From the beginning to the end of election day, communication and organization is key to keeping everyone safe. I have communicated with principals, engineers, and all other staff members providing them with guidance and suggestions to ensure a secure school environment.  Of course, we have our outstanding Dearborn Police School Resource Officers who, as always, will be in our schools on election day. We have a great partnership with the Dearborn Police and they will once again be making an extra effort on election day to visit schools not just once, but frequently throughout the day in a program they call “Safe and Fair Elections.”

Our schools are part of the neighborhood and fortunately the people coming in to vote are the friends, neighbors, and parents of the students we see everyday. As a school community we need to take pride in the role we have to support a free and fair election process.  At the same time we must balance that with the very real concern for the overall safety of the staff and students in our schools. By all of us doing our part to work together, communicate, remain vigilant, and follow a few simple precautions, our schools will remain safe, not only on election day, but every day. 

Have a great day,

John Leacher

Health, Safety & Security Supervisor
