Positive Covid Case at Snow

DATE: : May 3, 2021

TO: Staff and Families of Snow Elementary School

FROM: Mr. Abdelfattah, Principal

RE: COVID-19 Case Identification 

A confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at  school. The positive person was on school grounds April 29, 2021. We are working closely with Wayne County Health Department to identify exposures and prevent further cases. This letter is informational only; no further action is required for you at this time.

I want to thank all staff and students for following in through social distancing measures and adhering to all other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact with anyone for 15 minutes or more. I want to also remind all staff and students that we need to respect everyone’s privacy at all times. Your safety and privacy are important to us. Again, we thank all of you for adhering to all guidelines. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are less than six feet from each other for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to fourteen days after a person is exposed. 

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever (>100.4oF), cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. 

There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free” and protect ourselves and loved ones: 

  1. Children and adults should stay home when ill. 
  2. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds. 
  3. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes must contain at least 60% alcohol. Dispose of wipes in the trash after use. 
  4. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand). 
  5. Follow guidance for wearing a face covering and social distancing. 

If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078. 

Following the guidance of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, the school has been disinfected. This includes spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer, along with other methods of disinfection.

Additional information can be found on the CDC website.

Press release 36 – Teacher of the Year nominations now open

Press release 36 – Teacher of the Year nominations now open

Press Release #36/May 3, 2021

Nominations have now opened for the 2021 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Students Choice Award.  

This annual award is sponsored by the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce and presented by LaFontaine Automotive Group. The nomination deadline is Friday, May 28, 2021 at 5 p.m.  The online nomination form can be found at http://bit.ly/DbnTOY2021.

Paper nomination forms can be printed from the district website or picked up at any Dearborn Public School or the District’s Administrative Service Center, 18700 Audette St., Dearborn.  Completed forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI 48124 or faxed to (313) 584-9818.  Adults may assist students in completing nominations when necessary.  No more than two teachers may be nominated per student.

Although the district appreciates all the hard work that parents have done this past year to be an active part of their child’s education, this award honors our Dearborn Public Schools teachers.  Students may nominate any new or veteran teacher whom they feel has made an outstanding contribution to the teaching profession. Preschool through second grade students are asked to describe how their teacher makes learning fun.  Students in this category can include a nice drawing, if they wish, but it will not be part of the selection process. Third through fifth grade students must describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun.  Middle school students (grades 6-8) are asked to explain how their teacher connects classroom learning with everyday life. Students in high school must describe how their teacher is preparing them to be college and career ready.

“In a year where every teacher is deserving of this award, I hope many of our students will take a few moments to nominate their favorite teacher.  Nominating a teacher for this award is a great way to honor them and show appreciation  for  the work they have done to create a meaningful educational experience in the virtual, hybrid, and in-person classroom,” said Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Maleyko. 

Applications will be assessed on the quality of the nomination, not on the number received.  Award judges are members of the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names. One winner from each category will be announced at a special ceremony to be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 4:15 p.m. The Chamber of Commerce delayed this year’s nominations and celebration hoping COVID conditions will improve to allow for an in-person awards announcement in the fall. 

Teachers selected to receive the Teacher of Year Award are recognized as positive role models who consistently provide unique, productive, positive classroom experiences. Winning teachers receive a $1,000 cash prize and a glass award commemorating their achievement. They also will join a select group of Dearborn teachers who have been recognized by the community for their dedication and passion for teaching. 

“I want to thank the Chamber of Commerce and all the sponsors for once again providing this event,” Dr. Maleyko added. “Our district is very fortunate to have so many great community partners.”by Katie Hetrick on May 3, 2021
