Weekly Meal Pick Up will Change to Wednesday beginning 3/3/2021

With the start of blended learning on March 1, Dearborn Public Schools will change how it distributes free student meals.

Weekly meal pickup will move to Wednesdays starting on March 3 and will be provided at all of our traditional middle and high schools.  Pickup will continue to run from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  

Students at all levels will also have the option to receive a meal on the days they attend school in person.

Pickup will be available at Bryant Middle, Dearborn High, Edsel Ford High, Fordson High, Lowrey, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, Smith Middle, Stout Middle, and Woodworth Middle schools. 

Please note, Henry Ford, Maples, McDonald and Miller elementary schools and the Dearborn Heights Campus will no longer be distribution sites.

Dearborn Public Schools will continue to provide a week’s worth of food for any student in the district or any sibling under 18 years of age.  No ID is required, and the student does not need to attend that building or come with the adult picking up the food.

Students attending in person will also have the option to get a meal at school that day.  Students will socially distance in serving lines, and touch points have been minimized.  The district will continue to work to provide high quality food in the safest way possible. 

Elementary students attending face to face will be able to pick from one of two hot lunch options or pack their own food.  Most buildings will have students eating in the cafeteria with social-distancing, but the specifics of how children will eat will vary by building.  Menus will be provided on the Nutrislice website.

Middle and high school students attending face-to-face instruction will be able to get a grab-and-go breakfast.  Those menus will also be posted on Nutrislice.  More details of how breakfast will work at each building will be provided directly from that school. 

Dearborn Public Schools has been distributing free student meals since shortly after the schools were required to close in March 2020.  Recently, we have been handing out more than 100,000 meals a week.  The district has about 20,700 students.

All students attending school in the district are eligible for free breakfast and lunch under special provisions of the National School Lunch Program.

Online Learning Etiquette Tips for Parents

To help parents and students with online learning, we have compiled some etiquette tips for parents. We know that most families follow good protocols, but hopefully this will help if some clarification is needed. We thank you in advance for that cooperation. 


Please make sure students are prepared and participating.  Ensure supplies and materials are ready, and computers are charged or plugged in.  Please make sure students log in on time.  If you want your child to get the most out of class, insist they turn on their camera even if the teacher does not require it.  

Remember teachers are there to teach your child.  Teachers are managing their class and providing instruction directed to your child.  Please do not interrupt class with your questions or concerns.  Those are best emailed to the teacher.

Be respectful.  Teachers have had a difficult year too, and are working hard to make the best of a situation they never expected to be in.  Be patient and courteous.  If you have concerns, please politely bring those to the teacher outside of class time through email.  Inappropriate language and demeaning or aggressive behavior are not permitted.

Don’t hover.  Allow your child to interact with the teacher and do their own homework and assessments.  We always encourage parents to be involved and support their children in their learning, but to learn and develop independence, each child needs to be engaged and doing his or her own work.  (Obviously our youngest students probably need more help from the adults at home.)

Watch the background. Be aware that, depending on how your child’s camera and microphone are set up, the behavior of you and others could be transmitted to the entire class.  Be mindful of how you are dressed, the language being used, and other such matters.

Technology issues.  Issues with technology will happen from time to time for a variety of reasons.  Please be patient when issues occur.  For technical questions about your Chromebook, Schoology or Zoom, please contact our parent and student tech support at or 313-827-8400.

Thank you for all your help!  Together, we will make the best of this difficult year.
