Playgrounds CLOSED

During the State of Michigan mandated shut down, all Dearborn Public School facilities, including playgrounds, and athletic fields, will be closed to the public. Please do not attempt to go onto the fields or access the playgrounds.  If you are found on the property you will be asked to leave.  

The Governor has ordered that we all shelter in place.  This is not a recommendation or suggestion. This action is being taken to help in the effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to mitigate the number of people becoming sick. Hospitals in southeastern Michigan are being overwhelmed and are reaching the point where they are unable to meet the needs of those arriving for care. We must all do our part to help slow the spread of this virus and remain at home!  

The Governor did say that it is ok to go for a walk, run, or bike ride. However, we can not gather in groups at local parks or playgrounds.

We look forward to the day, hopefully in the not too distant future, when our facilities will once again be open to the public and we can all return to our regular routines. The District appreciates all of the support that the Dearborn community has shown and the tremendous amount of community spirit that has been demonstrated during this very difficult time.  Together we will get through this, one community, #DearbornStrong!

بيان :إغلاق الملاعب
على وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي ومشاركتها مع جميع المدراء لوضعها على مدونات مدارسهم.
صباح الخير،
بحلول عطلة نهاية الاسبوع وعلى الرغم من أن توقعات الطقس تبين هطول الامطار ، إلا أننا جميعًا نحب
الخروج واستنشاق بعض الهواء النقي. هذا صحيح بشكل خاص خلال هذا الوقت من العام عندما تبدأ درجات
الحرارة في الارتفاع ونمضي الكثير من الوقت في الداخل
يعتقد الكثيرون أنه قد يكون من الجيد أن يخرج الاطفال للعب مع صديق واحد أو اثنين. للاسف ،لا يجب
علينا القيام بشيء كهذا في هذا الوقت. المعركة لوقف انتشار فيروس كورونا 19 COVID مستمرة  والتجمع
في مجموعات صغيرة ، حتى في الخارج. ، في الحديقة الخلفية  أمراً مرفوضاً لا يمكننا القيام به.

أثناء اغلاق ولاية ميشيغان ، سيتم إغلاق جميع مرافق مدارس ديربورن الرسمية أمام العامة، بما في ذلك الملاعب ، والصالات الرياضية. من فضلكم، لا  تحاولوا الذهاب إلى الملاعب الخارجية أو الوصول إلى الملاعب  الداخلية. إذا تم العثور عليكم في أي جزء من ملكية المدارس سيُطلب منكم المغادرة.
لقد اصدرت حاكمة الولاية امراً بأن نلزم منازلنا جميعاً. هذه ليست توصية أو اقتراح.
 يتم اتخاذ هذاالاجراء  لتعزيز الجهود المبذولة لابطاء انتشار فيروس 19-COVID والتخفيف من عدد الاصابات..
 تعاني المستشفيات في جنوب شرق ميشيغان من الاكتظاظ وقد وصلت إلى النقطة التي لن تكون قادرة فيها على
تلبية احتياجات أولئك الذين يصلون للحصول على الرعاية. يجب علينا جميعًا القيام بدورنا للمساعدة في
إبطاء انتشار هذا الفيروس والبقاء في المنزل!
قالت الحاكمة أنه لا بأس بالقيام بنشاطات مثل المشي أو الجري أو ركوب الدراجة. ومع ذلك ، لا يمكننا
التجمع في مجموعات في الحدائق المحلية أو الملاعب.
نتطلع إلى اليوم ، ونأمل أن يأتي هذا اليوم في المستقبل القريب ، الذي يعاد فيه فتح مرافقنا مرة أخرى للعامة
وعودتنا جميعاً إلى روتيننا المعتاد. تقدر المقاطعة كل الدعم الذي أظهره مجتمع ديربورن والتعاضد العظيم.
والتحلي بالروح الواحدة التي ظهرت خلال هذا الوقت العصيب. معًا سنتجاوز هذا كمجتمع واحد ، # ديربورن

Authors and Illustrators who are offering LIVE events

Authors and illustrators clearly understand the importance of reading aloud to children.  There is a growing list of authors and illustrators who are going to do live readings of their books or drawings on social media every day!  The best way to find these things is to follow the author or illustrator on the social media platform where they will be reading or sketching or singing or doing whatever it is that they are going to do in order to keep children engaged.  Here is the list…as I know it!

*Mo Willems (Elephant and Piggie) – Daily lunch doodles with Mo at 1 pm EST (Facebook, but it is through the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts page…try this link to get to it).  If you can’t get it right at 1:00, it is on their website soon after he is finished.
