Food Distribution Change

Food schedule change On Monday, March 30, Dearborn Public Schools is changing the format of its free student meal distributions.

Meals will now be distributed three times a week, instead of five.  

Meals will generally be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. However, the week of April 6 to 10, meals will be handed out on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Friday, April 10, is Good Friday and a holiday for District staff.

Fewer meal distributions should make it easier for families to get the food while reducing the risk of virus exposure for both our families and our staff. 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 grab-and-go meals will continue to be handed out between 10 a.m. and noon at the same seven schools.  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.

The distribution sites are Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools; McCollough/Unis; Salina Intermediate; Smith Middle School; and Woodworth Middle School.

The program is allowing the District’s 20,700 students to continue to have access to healthy food. The meals are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Dearborn Public Schools already used the federal program to offer all kindergarten to 12th grade students free lunch and breakfast on school days.

Meal distributions will continue through the state-ordered school closure.  Currently, schools are set to reopen on April 14.

The staff have created learning guides to assist with student learning at home. Please reach out to one another through email or phone calls to ensure all parents have been in contact with their teacher. Please let me know if I can do anything to assist you.

Parent Community Survey

Thank you for taking part in our Parent/Community survey. Our staff looked over the results at a staff meeting. The scale was 1= strongly agree through 5 = strongly disagree. Our lowest score was “Our school provides opportunities for students to participate in activities that interest them. Our plan to improve this is to provide after school clubs for students to participate in and incorporate student driven activities in class. We really appreciate your feedback and always look forward to your input!
