All Dearborn Public Schools will be open on Monday, February 12, 2018.

We want to thank all the hard working Engineers, Custodians, and staff members in the Operations and Grounds Department for putting in many extra hours this weekend to clear school parking lots and sidewalks.

We also want to extend a thank you to all the crews at the City of Dearborn who have been working hard all weekend to clear streets in our city.

After checking road conditions, talking with the City of Dearborn, and having discussions with our Transportation Department the District does not anticipate any wide spread problems or delays.

However, with the amount of snowfall and cold temperatures, conditions may exist on a few side streets that require slower then normal and extra cautious driving. Please be advised that these conditions may cause some buses to run a bit behind schedule on Monday.

Bundle up and see you in school on Monday!

Internet Safety

Are your children safe while online?

Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography, illegal drug and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Texting their advertisements is the newest marketing effort that many of these companies are using.

Thankfully, the Michigan Secretary of State’s office offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, like the federal Do Not Call List, is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families.

As a strong supporter of this Registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for this program and inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect their children and families from unwanted adult advertising.

To sign up only takes seconds. Just go to www.ProtectMIChild.com and keep your family safe.

Flu – Influenza fact sheet

Fact Sheet:  Flu (Influenza)


What is influenza?

It is a disease caused by a virus that infects the respiratory tract, and is commonly called “the flu”. Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, influenza infection often causes a more severe illness.

 

What is the treatment?

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration (i.e., water, juice, and tea).
  • Take non-aspirin medication for fever and body aches.

How is it prevented?

The best way to prevent influenza is to be vaccinated against it.  The influenza vaccine is made from inactivated (killed) influenza viruses each flu season; the vaccine will boost the immune system’s ability to fight various flu viruses.  There is also a flu vaccine available as a nasal spray which is a weakened form of the live virus.  Sometimes, an unpredicted new strain may appear after the vaccine has been made and distributed. Even if someone does become infected with the new strain of influenza, the disease symptoms may be milder because the vaccine may provide some protection.  You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine.

Additional prevention measures:

  • Wash hands frequently, especially after coughing, sneezing and handling used tissues.
  • Avoid close contact with those who have cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • After contact with a person who is ill, wash your hands and keep your fingers away from your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • Boost your immune system by eating a healthy diet, and getting regular physical activity and plenty of rest

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms usually appear within 2 to 4 days after being infected and include:

  • Fever (usually 100.5 F to 103.5 F in adults and often even higher in children)
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headache and muscle aches
  • Extreme fatigue

 

Most people who get the flu recover completely in 1 to 2 weeks, but some people develop serious and potentially life threatening medical complications, such as pneumonia.  Flu-related complications can occur at any age; however, the elderly, people with chronic health problems, pregnant women and young children are much more likely to develop serious complications after influenza infection.

How is it spread?

Viruses that cause flu are spread by direct contact with respiratory droplets (i.e., coughing and sneezing). Flu viruses enter the body through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth. Those at highest risk for infection live in densely populated areas, are in crowded living situations, or attend school.

Outdoor recess

Just a reminder the students do line up and go outside for recess during the winter months. Please be sure you send your child to school with boots, hats, gloves, a winter coat. Also please send in a extra pair of socks and a pair of shoes they can keep in their locker during the week. Students line up and go out for recess as long as the temperature is 20 degrees or warmer.

The guidelines we use to determine if students will go outside for recess or have inside line-up for arrival are a combined temperature and windchill of below 20 degrees.  Therefore, if the weather is below 20 degrees, students will remain inside for recess.

Please remember to always dress appropriately for the weather; students will need coats/jackets, snow pants, boots, hats, scarves and gloves to ensure their safety and well-being when we have outdoor recess!
