Free Breakfast/Lunch Pick Up

  • Posted on March 18, 2020 at 8:53 pm

Hello, 
Dearborn Public Schools is offering free pickup lunch and breakfast for students while school is closed for the mandatory shut down over the next three weeks.
Families will be able to stop by any one of six locations to pick up a bag with both breakfast and lunch for each child in the family. Pickups will run daily from 10 a.m. to noon starting March 17, 2020 and running until April 3rd, 2020. 
Locations are as follows:Fordson, Edsel Ford and Dearborn high schools, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, and Woodworth Middle School.

Signage at each site will direct parents and students where to enter the building. 
Please note, meals are available to anyone age 18 and younger.  Students do not need to be present, and the Dearborn School student does not need to attend at that building.  A designated person can collect meals for multiple children.  Meals for Saturday and Sunday can be picked up on Friday.
Check the Dearborn Public Schools website at www.dearbornschools.org for any updates or changes to the meal program or for other issues regarding the school closure.

Thank you

Mobymax

  • Posted on March 18, 2020 at 8:45 pm

With the majority of states now facing school closures, students are using MobyMax at home more than ever.

For some, it’s the first time their parents and guardians are seeing Moby, and you may be getting lots of questions!

We’ve put together a handy guide for parents that details how to use MobyMax at home with their children.

It includes a description of the program, sign-in instructions, and suggestions for what students should work on. The guide can easily be printed to send home with students (if you’re still able) or emailed to parents directly.
