Important Letter From Dr. Maleyko


Our staff and students have been doing an outstanding job with following all of our COVID 19 safety rules. I have visited every school in Dearborn Public Schools during the month of March to observe COVID 19 safety protocols and classroom instruction. I am extremely proud of our incredible staff, students and the community. We will continue to place safety as a top priority, and with an abundance of caution we have decided to place all students on a virtual schedule for the week of April 6-9 following the Spring Break. We realize that families may be traveling over the break and may interact with more individuals during the Easter holiday. This means that three days will be changed to synchronous online learning instead of Hybrid learning (April 6th, 8th, and 9th). Wednesday April 7th was already scheduled as a virtual day. 

In addition, we have sent communications regarding our free COVID 19 Antigen Testing site at Edsel Ford High School on April 5 from 11am-6pm. I am encouraging all staff, students and community members who want peace of mind to please go to the site for testing on April 5. Click here to view the information regarding this testing clinic that will be run by the State of Michigan at Edsel Ford. 

We still have some challenges to face with the pandemic moving forward, and I encourage everyone to follow the COVID 19 safety protocols to help prevent the spread of the virus. However, I also believe that we have some positive news on the horizon as more vaccines are now available and Dearborn Public Schools is planning to partner with vaccine providers to get students who are sixteen and over vaccinated during the month of April.  For those of you who celebrate the Easter holiday or any other holiday during this time, I wish you and your family all the best for a happy holiday season. 

Please stay safe and remember to wear your mask.
