Update

Lindbergh Community

I hope you and your family are healthy and safe during this unprecedented time. I understand and appreciate all of the continued commitment we are making for the social/emotional and academic needs of our students. Each day tons of information is being sent our way virtually and we are all trying our best to navigate through it all and do what works best for our families. Communication, patience and understanding are key.

I have some updates that I would like to send out and will continue to update as needed:

  1. Spring Pictures and yearbooks are on our radar and we are in communication with Lifetouch regarding their delivery to get them into the hands of families that paid for them. If you’ve already ordered your pictures, they will be handed out when the stay at home order is lifted. If you haven’t ordered, you can call 1-800-736-4753 and Lifetouch will help locate your access credentials to place your order.
  2. As a district we have been provided with various organizations that are willing to help families in need during this time. If you are in need of assistance, please send me an email and I will try my best to help. We are in this together.
  3. KG registrations-We are still working through the best possible way to move forward with this. Our plan is to do a recorded presentation of our KG round-up and post it online. This will include information on how to register and what to expect moving forward. In order to ensure we are including all incoming students, please fill out our survey on the blog. This is under the Kindergarten and Young Fives tab. This will provide us with some basic information and allow us to include you directly in our communications.
  4. I realize some students still have items in school. Please note that until the stay at home order is lifted there is no access to the school building. As soon as the order is lifted, we will develop a safe plan to allow parents/students to come collect their belongings.

If you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a wonderful weekend.

Scholastic Online Book Fair

The PTA is hosting an online book fair which runs April 8 through April 21. There’s a wide selection of materials for all ages—pre-K through high school—including books, educational workbooks, puzzles, arts and crafts, building sets, and more. Check out the “shop by grade level or age” feature.

Lindbergh earns 25% with every purchase when you click “Shop Now” from our webpage: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/lindberghflyers(The shopping will not be activated until April 8.)

In order for our school to receive credit for your purchases, you must start from that specific book fair homepage (not a Scholastic Book Club or related site) and sign in. You do not have to be a Lindbergh parent to shop… so share with your friends!

All purchases ship directly to customers, with FREE standard shipping when you spend $25 or more (on books only – not the junky stuff).

Thank you for supporting our school and we hope that this opportunity to find new books provides some joy during this uncertain time. Keep reading, Flyers!

Spring Break April 6-10

Lindbergh Community,

I hope each and everyone of you are healthy and safe. The last three weeks have been filled with emotions, uncertainly and appreciation for the things we have. Although this spring break is unique it will provide us with some time to Sharpen the Saw at home. I challenge parents, students, and staff to take this week to take care of ourselves by eating right, exercising and sleeping well. Focus our energy on what is most important!

We will reconnect on April 13th, have a safe and restful break!

Ms. Tiba

Please join in the fun and show your Dearborn spirit by posting photos on your social media with #pioneerpride.

Playgrounds Closed

Good Afternoon Lindbergh Community

The weekend is here and although the weather forecast is calling for rain, we all like to get outside and get some fresh air. This is especially true during this time of year when the temperatures are on the rise and we all have been spending a lot of time inside. 

Many are thinking that it might be alright to get outside and have children play with one or two friends. Unfortunately, this is not something we should be doing at this time. The battle to stop the spread of the COVID 19 virus is on-going and gathering in small groups, even outside at the local park is not something we should be doing. 

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!

Food Schedule Change

On Monday, March 30, Dearborn Public Schools is changing the format of its free student meal distributions.

Meals will now be distributed three times a week, instead of five.  

Meals will generally be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. However, the week of April 6 to 10, meals will be handed out on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Friday, April 10, is Good Friday and a holiday for District staff.

Fewer meal distributions should make it easier for families to get the food while reducing the risk of virus exposure for both our families and our staff. 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 grab-and-go meals will continue to be handed out between 10 a.m. and noon at the same seven schools.  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.

The distribution sites are Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools; McCollough/Unis; Salina Intermediate; Smith Middle School; and Woodworth Middle School.

The program is allowing the District’s 20,700 students to continue to have access to healthy food. The meals are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Dearborn Public Schools already used the federal program to offer all kindergarten to 12th grade students free lunch and breakfast on school days.

Meal distributions will continue through the state-ordered school closure.  Currently, schools are set to reopen on April 14.

Check firstbell.dearbornschools.org for the latest information on the school closure and the food program.
