Letter from the Principal -Week 12

Week 12

Hello Parents,

There are only 5 days left and we need 200 more parents to let us know how we are doing by answering a few questions on our Parent Survey. Please spend a few minutes today!

Congrats to the whole crew that put on our play last week, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.” I love watching our kids realize their talents in such an awesome way! Way to go Girls Volleyball on winning the district championship. They play in the regional semi’s against Churchill this Tuesday at DHS, 7 pm, they’d love your support.

Next week Dearborn High is participating in the “Battle Against Hunger.” The Battle Against Hunger is an annual collective effort between Dearborn High School, Fordson High School, and Edsel Ford High School. All canned goods collected will be donated to Zaman International to stock their warehouse and all funds collected will be donated to the Amity Foundation. The Kick-Off Event for the Battle is this Sunday; we’ve included a couple flyers that give more information.

As a reminder, this Friday is the end of our 2nd Card-Marking. Please make sure to encourage your students to get all of their assignments turned in by Friday and to do their best on any end of card marking tests.

2019-20 Dearborn High School Phone Policy

New Phone Policy for Students

August 24, 2019kubicem

Dearborn High School Electronic Device Policy

Personal electronic devices can be distracting to the learning process. This includes, but is not limited to, cell phones, airpods, headphones, iPads, personal use electronics, etc.

To support our mission of educating students, we are asking students not to bring any electronic device to DHS to be used throughout the school day. If a student does choose to bring them to school, it is expected that they follow the policy below:

Students may use personal electronic devices on school property during the following designated
times only:
● Before the start of the school day until 7:10 a.m., when our first bell rings
● During a student’s lunch time, but ONLY in the cafeteria
● After school is dismissed, 2:15 p.m.

Throughout the school day, ALL electronic devices should be turned off, out of sight, and locked/secured properly.

If a student is found to have an electronic device outside of the designated times listed above, the student will be asked to turn it over to a staff member. Devices that are collected by staff will be turned into the student’s administrator who will address the infraction according to our student code of conduct.

● First Violation: Phone will be given to the student’s administrator and a parent or guardian will be contacted.
● Second Violation: Phone will be given to the student’s administrator and a parent or guardian will be contacted; the device will be held for three consecutive school days.
● Third Violation: Phone will be given to the student’s administrator and a meeting with a parent or guardian will be required. Student will be disciplined according to the student code of conduct for insubordination.
● Additional Violation: The student will be disciplined according to the student code of conduct for insubordination.

Should a student refuse to turn in their device when requested to do so by a staff member; the staff member will contact the office and the student will be immediately escorted to the office to meet with administration. This will result in a referral for insubordination.

Dearborn High School is not responsible or liable for any theft, loss, or damage to any student’s personal electronic device. In order to prevent this from possibly occurring, students are encouraged to keep their devices at home.

We appreciate the support of our parents and guardians to eliminate distractions, academic dishonesty, and disruptions during the school day. If there is a family emergency, parents or guardians should call 313.827.1600.

Class of 2019 Commencement Information

Class of 2019 Commencement

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!


A few reminders:


  • Students should not be on any Dearborn Public School property unless they have specific school related business. If you have sports, are taking a test, finishing E2020, need to pick up a sibling, or attend a concert, of course you can be here. DO NOT GO TO EDSEL OR FORDSON CAMPUSES.


  • Cords and Stoles can be worn at Commencement but no Key Club stole at Commencement.


  • For commencement please wear appropriate clothing: collared shirts, no jeans, no shorts, dressy shoes. Please consider wearing flats as the grass and the bleachers are difficult to navigate in heels.


  • Commencement rehearsal is Friday, June 7th at 9:00 am in the auditorium. You must attend if you are planning on walking at commencement. If there is a major conflict, please let Mr. Martin know. You must attend the rehearsal to receive your two tickets if commencement is moved indoors to the gym because of the weather. As long as the weather cooperates and the commencement is able to be held outside, there is no limit on the number of guests who may attend.


  • The commencement ceremony is June 8th. Students should be lined up on the tennis courts by 5:15 PM. You should wear your cap and gown. Be on time because we will start without you. Do not bring water bottles, noise-makers, inflatable balloons, or anything else that will distract from the ceremony; you’re the main attraction but so are the other students so please celebrate respectfully. Make sure to get your diploma after the ceremony.


  • You may decorate your graduation cap if you wish but if it is inappropriate you will not participate in the commencement ceremony.


At commencement, our expectation is that we will all enjoy ourselves within reason and respect the event. Do not spoil the event for your families, friends, or yourself. Please be respectful in how you behave during commencement and at the senior party.

Again, congratulations! We’re all proud of you and your accomplishments at Dearborn High School! You are and always will be a Pioneer; let’s maintain that pride with our actions.
