Food Distribution Changes!

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.

NO DISTRIBUTIONS MAY 22 AND 25

May 27 and 29 and June 1, 3, 5, 8 and 10

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

Calling All New Preschoolers, Young 5’ers, and Kindergartners!

Can you believe it’s time for teachers to begin thinking about wrapping up the school year? Whallah- I am not ready for this announcement 🙁

Preschool:

If you know of a child who will be 4 years old by December 1, 2020 they may be eligible for our GSRP PreK program in the fall. Parents of children who are age eligible are welcome to fill out the interest form at the link below. Preschool teachers will be setting up meetings with potential families once we get back into the buildings.

Young 5/Kindergarten:

Children leaving our Preschool classroom will automatically be enrolled at River Oaks next year. Parents will need to take their child to the doctor for a new school physical and immunization record. New physical forms/immunization records will be given to Ms. Debbie in the River Oaks office to complete your Y5/kindergarten registration file.

If you are planning to move or enroll your child in another school- please let me know. I want to make sure your child’s file is sent to the right location.
