Info for upcoming days off…

Hi Parents!

I know we are all nervous, confused, and wondering what is coming next. Please try to stay calm and do not let your little ones see you worrying. They are too young to know about this situation-just explain it in very easy terms and do not let them understand in too much detail where they will become scared.

I will be sending information mostly through Remind. This is the easiest/quickest way and most parents only follow that mode of communication. Please look for activities that I will be sending out daily and I will also be sending private messages checking in on your child’s goals and what not.

Please continue to practice the following items with your child. We do not want them to lose all they have worked so hard to gain:

*Name Writing
*Color Recognition
*Shape Recognition
*Letter Recognition (Upper and Lowercase)
*Counting to 30 and Number Recognition
*Counting items up to 20
*USING MANNERS! Saying “please, thank you, excuse me, etc.”

We look forward to seeing you again on April 13th. Until then- I will talk to you soon:) Stay healthy and enjoy the extra bonus time with your little angels.

A Message from the Principal regarding COVID-19

Dear Dearborn GSRP Families,

With the latest COVID-19 pandemic now infiltrating Michigan it is best we stick to the facts and don’t pay attention to all of the “false” news on social media, but instead educate ourselves and parents regarding the science behind the virus.  Please access the Wayne County Health Department at the following URL for the most up to date information:

I also want to share the steps that we are continuing to take in each of the GSRP classrooms to support a healthy environment for our students.

  1. Our custodians will continue to clean and disinfect all surface areas including desks, tables, door handles, and other classroom items.
  2. We will have teachers serving the food to students during breakfast, lunch and snack. All food will be served by the teacher directly to the student for the time being.
  3. Students and staff continue to wash hands regularly throughout the day.

Good hygiene practices will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. Please follow these recommendations and encourage all family members to do the same.

  1. Stay home if you are sick, and advise others to do the same.
  2. Always cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve.
  3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  5. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and warm water are not available.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The following resources were shared by the district administration team to support parents in discussing COVID-19 with their children. Please click on the links below to review these documents.
