A Message from Mr. Awada

Good Evening Miller Families,

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying the quality family time with loved ones. Adjusting to the Governors Stay at Home Executive Order ensures we all remain safe and do our part to decrease the spread of COVID-19. Understandably this new normal comes with increased uncertainty, please take care of yourselves and loved ones and continue following guidelines communicated by the State of Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Service https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus . Continue speaking to and practicing recommended safety precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID – 19: social distancing, proper hygiene habits and healthy eating is a great start and will be the new normal moving forward.

Miller Staff continue using new tools and/or mastering the current technology to support on-line learning and maintain students’ academic, social and emotional growth. Thankfully Dearborn Public Schools and Miller Elementary Staff are state leaders when it comes to on-line learning and technology integration.

Miller Staff remain committed to supporting student virtual learning and continue:

1) Posting weekly academic enrichment lessons, online physical activities and special resources to assist students with instruction and enrichment activities. Please access and sign up for teacher Blog posts at: https://miller.dearbornschools.org/parents/school-news/

2) 3rd Card Marking Ended Friday March 27, 20202. Grades will be available on Parent Connect by the end of the week, Friday April 3rd, 2020. Report Cards are NOT being mailed home.

3) Please forward any questions to staff or administration and we will gladly respond.

4) Gleaners Food Bank is Tuesday March 31, 2020 at 11 a.m. and will be conducted via curbside pickup. IMPORTANT – DO NOT exit your vehicle,

A. Follow the cones and pull up in the Bus Drop.

B. A Staff member will take down your information, while other staff members load your trunk. Make certain you have cleaned out your trunk prior to coming to the school.

C. Pop the trunk, additional staff member will place contents in the trunk and close the trunk.

D. If you are walking, there will be a table set up on the sidewalk, please maintain the six feet social distancing guidelines, cones will be set up six feet apart to help maintain a safe distance. One person at a time will be processed at the table, please do not approach the table until notified by a staff member to approach. Ensuring everyone’s safety is the top priority and requires we work together, if safety guidelines are not followed violators will immediately be asked to leave.

Stay, Safe, Healthy and Take care of your families. During these unprecedented times, I encourage you to do what is necessary to protect your loved ones. It is disappointing but very necessary given these times as we need to do our part to flatten the curve and support our medical service workers who are going above and beyond to help those who are sick or in need of medical assistance. We can all do our part!

What We know and don’t know: Unfortunately, this situation is very fluid and we do not have answers to all questions that may be out there. The Governor stated Friday morning she does not think that we will return to school this year. Team Miller and the Dearborn Public Schools will continue to plan for that possibility along with the possibility of returning. Regardless of the outcome I’m comforted we will continue supporting students, one another and the Miller Community during these unprecedented times. Stay SAFE STAY HOME!

Respectfully,

Team Miller sending our LOVE and BLESSINGS!

Dearborn Public Schools Playgrounds are all Closed

Dearborn Recreation Department Changes Scope of Summer Park Games ...

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
قوية.

Breakfast and Lunch Distribution

Dearborn Schools adds seventh site for free breakfast and lunch ...

The free breakfast/lunch distribution continues today, Monday, starting at 10:00 am to noon at Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools; McCollough/Unis; Salina Intermediate; Smith Middle School; and Woodworth Middle School. The program will only be handing out food three days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 
Each food bag will still contain both breakfast, lunch and milk for a child under 18, but now the bag will have food for each day until the next distribution.

The Dearborn Schools student does not have to attend that school to be eligible for a meal. A designated person can pick up meals for multiple children.  The student does not need to be present.

Thank you and have a safe day!
