Happy Friday parents!

Due to the windy conditions that left the ASC without power, our office had to relocate on Friday to another site. Unfortunately, without our computers we cannot look at accounts, take Insta Charges or answer the phones. However, we CAN see our email.  Here are some answers you may seek:

Yes, the day off on Thursday will be treated just like a “snow day” for our programs. The same will be said if your child normally attends Haigh or Howe for today.

We don’t know about Kindergarten Round Up at Lindbergh, you will need to contact that school for more information as it was scheduled last night.

If you have any other questions please email us at billingech@dearbornschools.org or stovers@dearbornschools.org or leave a message on our main line at 313-827-8350.

Thank you for your patience and please stay safe as down wires remain in some areas and limbs litter your yards and streets. If you tried to call us yesterday or today for a payment just leave a voicemail and we will get back to you on Monday. You will NOT receive a late fee.
