Dearborn Schools offering free breakfast and lunch pickup for students at six sites

Dearborn Public Schools is offering free pickup lunch and breakfast for students while school is closed for the mandatory shut down over the next three weeks.

Families will be able to stop in and pick up a bag with both breakfast and lunch for each child in the family.  Pickups will run daily from 10 a.m. to noon starting tomorrow, March 17 at Fordson, Edsel Ford and Dearborn high schools, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, and Woodworth Middle School.

Signage at each site will direct parents and students where to enter the building. Food will be near entrances to minimize the amount of time community members spend in the facilities.

Please note, meals are available to anyone age 18 and younger.  Students do not need to be present, and the Dearborn School student does not need to attend at that building.  A designated person can collect meals for multiple children. Meals for Saturday and Sunday can be picked up on Friday.

The program will allow the District’s 20,700 students to continue to have access to healthy food.  Gov. Gretchen Whitmer last week ordered all Michigan schools closed from March 16 through April 3 to slow the spread of novel coronavirus and cases of COVID-19.  Dearborn Schools is scheduled for spring break April 6 to 10, so school will not resume in the District until April 13.

The grab-and-go meals will be served at least through April 3. 

Superintendent Glenn Maleyko praised the District’s food service team for quickly implementing this drastic change in service to meet the needs of families.

“We appreciate the patience of our families and community as we all try to adjust to this sudden change from closing schools,” Dr. Maleyko said.  “More than three quarters of our students qualify for free or reduced priced school meals. We realize this food is important to our families, many of whom may be facing additional financial hardships from the sudden economic changes related to COVID-19.”

Check the Dearborn Public Schools website at www.dearbornschools.org for any updates or changes to the meal program or for other issues regarding the school closure.

School Closure-Moving Forward

Lindbergh Families

Let me begin by reminding everyone that the most important thing moving forward is the health and safety of our entire community. So please continue to be safe!

In an effort to provide you with some information and guidance regarding our plan for academics, please continue to visit your class blogs, emails and remind or Class Dojo apps daily.

Today, our teachers spent the day planning and preparing for learning to continue virtually in the coming weeks. We worked really hard to come up with a plan moving forward that will be relevant, engaging, and accommodating to the needs of all students and families. We greatly appreciate your continued patience and understanding during this transitional time. We will try as much as possible to accommodate where we can and ask that you share any concerns or questions directly with your classroom teacher.

The teacher will be sharing specific information with you early next week if they haven’t already done so.

Thank you in advance for your support and together we will continue to be safe and successful.

Family Survey

Hello Lindbergh Families,
In an effort to help us prepare for any contingencies regarding the Coronavirus, please take a moment to complete the following survey regarding your access to technology at home. This is a school wide survey so we are asking that families with multiple students enrolled only provide the name of their oldest child on this survey. These results are confidential to the school and will be shared with the necessary classroom and resource teachers and administrators only. Please complete this survey as early as possible.

Thank you.

Covid-19

Lindbergh Community,

As a school, we have been working to educate our students on the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding Covid-19. Below, I have also attached some additional information that you may want to read through and discuss any additional precautions and safety measure with your child. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. Have a wonderful evening.

Michigan Primary Election

Lindbergh Community,

As you may already know, Tuesday, March 10th is the Michigan Primary Election that will take place at Lindbergh and other schools.  We are aware of some of the anxiety and hesitation you as a parent may be feeling but want to assure you that as a district we have formulated a solid plan for the safety/security of our students and staff.  We also want to remind everyone that this is not the first time our building has been opened during a Primary Election. At the end of the day today, I will also be meeting with staff to ensure the plan is executed with fidelity.  Below you will find some of the procedures we will have in place. But please understand that there are other precautionary measures that we have in place that are not listed. 

  • Voting occurs in the gym therefore, the main door will be the only entrance and exit into the building for votersVolunteers will be stationed in the hallway leading to the gym to help guide visitors straight into and out of the gym.  Signs will be posted that there are no public restrooms or side exits allowed.
  • The Dearborn Police will be visible during the day.
  • All Staff members will be visible and actively monitoring during arrival and dismissal both inside and outside the building.  
  • All classroom doors will be locked and students will be given specific guidelines for using the restrooms.
  • PE classes this day will occur in your child’s classroom instead of the gym. 
  • We have parent volunteers for our picture day that their sole responsibility will be to walk students to and from the media center for photos. 
  • During recess, teachers have been informed to be actively supervising students.  
  • Each staff member will have a radio to use if needed.

It is imperative that your child is reminded of safety expectations and the importance of following them.  Please spend some time discussing it with your child tonight. We are confident in our ability together to continue to provide a safe and secure environment for our students.  

If you have any further questions/concerns, please let me know.  

Have a wonderful day, see you all tomorrow!
