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.

Online Learning – March 15, 2020

Good Morning Parents and Families,
During the next few weeks I will be sending you messages through the Dojo and this blog. Please check it daily so you are up to date.

Even though we are not in class, your child is expected to continue to work and learn. I have to monitor their efforts and have to grade them. One way for that is reading – I have given each child a basel book (a thick book with lots of stories) I will assign reading and have them respond in the journal I gave each child. The work and the journal will have to be turned in when we return to school.

Another way for me to monitor through a reading program called Raz Kids. It is an online reading program where the kids read and answer questions about that reading. There is also a test where they read and it records their voice as well as their answer to questions. I will be sending each one of you your child’s log in and code.

I will also resend you their Zearn code. They will have to go on Zearn and work. It will report their work to me in a report. This is to ensure that your child will continue to learn as well as to make sure their get accurate grades.

I will snap shot each of your child’s login codes. I have already enrolled them and selected their reading and math levels. They may have them do some easy reading and math to find their perfect level.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at burksg@dearbornschools.org or message me on DOJO.

January 2020!

Wow! How exciting to begin another year!

We have been busy working and most recently assessing everything we know so we can plan where to go next.

In January we will begin word pattern spelling along with spelling of sight words. We will focus on writing with being able to express our thoughts and ideas in writing and with our pictures. We will continue working on developing our reading and increasing our reading stamina. We are moving right along in our Math curriculum after having worked on 2D and 3D shapes, measurement and data charts. In Science we will continue working on Weather with a focus on how it impacts our environment and the plant and animals in that environment. In Social Studies we will work on learning our community and that places in it.

We are always working on being the best students, children and community members we can be. We continue to work on our Social Development and interactions so we can be the best we can be.

Happy 2020 to You and Your Families!
