Meal Schedule Change for Memorial Day

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.

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.

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.

New Schedules for Live Instruction

Dear Students and Families,

This weekend, a new schedule for live instruction was shared with students via email. Not all teachers will be utilizing live meetings for remote learning. Some will continue to do recorded lessons that students may watch on their own time. Those that do utilize live instruction through iLearn and Big Blue Button, will follow the schedules shared below. It is critical that every student checks all of their teachers blogs to stay informed as to how their teacher will provide instruction moving forward. All students will continue to have weekly assignments that they must complete in order to receive credit. We have included links to all teacher blogs, Google classrooms, and iLearn classes to help students navigate the most up-to-date information.

Dear Parents,

We will be distributing Chromebooks again on April 27th, 2020 from 1pm to 3pm at Stout Middle School. This will be a drive-through set up at the front of the building in the circular driveway. Parents/students do not have to exit their vehicle. Chromebooks will be distributed in disinfected plastic bags and parents will be asked to complete a form.

ALL Stout students are eligible to pick up a Chromebook. This means that even if you have multiple students at Stout, you may still pick up an additional Chromebook if you need one.

Changes to Online Learning

Dear Parents,

We will be limiting the use of Google Meets for online learning beginning tomorrow. A few teachers may still continue utilizing them and others may be offering sign-ups for smaller group sessions. Students will be able to sign up via email with their classroom teacher. This will allow teachers to have more control over who enters/exits these sessions and ensures that the sessions are conducive to learning. Other teachers will be recording new instruction using Google Meet or other software. Please have your child check their teachers’ blogs, Google Classrooms, and iLearn sites for information on online learning as we transition to a new platform. As you know, teachers are always available to answer any questions you may have.

Have a great evening!
