Chatting with the Superintendent

Chatting with the Superintendent events scheduled

Gatherings allow informal conversations with the Superintendent and his administrative team.


Parents, community members, and school district staff are invited to chat about Dearborn Public Schools with Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko during informal meetings at several schools this year.  Chatting with the Superintendent gatherings are less formal than School Board meetings, providing an opportunity for interactive conversation on a variety of school-related topics.


“I appreciate the opportunity to talk with our community and provide individuals with the big picture story of our district, to listen to their thoughts and comments, and hopefully to answer any questions they may have for me or our administrative team,” said Dr. Maleyko.  “Two years ago, we discovered this relaxed setting allows for good conversations, the sharing of ideas, and a platform that encourages open dialogue. I’m looking forward to this year’s Chats.”


The meetings are open to all community members, district staff, students and parents.  Parents are welcome to attend any of the Chats, even if their child attends a different school.  This year’s schedule starts Oct. 22, 2018 at Lowrey School and ends April 22, 2019 at Lindbergh Elementary.

The conversations will be driven by those in attendance and focus on topics related to individual schools or the District as a whole.  Parents who want to discuss an individual student or staff member should arrange to meet privately with the school principal or the child’s teacher.


“The most popular theme last year was the proposed high school attendance area changes,” Dr. Maleyko said.  “As a result of parent input at the Chats and our public boundary forums, our administrative team developed a new attendance area proposal that was more agreeable to the community.”


A possible topic at this year’s Chats could be the District’s ongoing infrastructure needs. Other topics could include the change to offering students free lunch across the District, Dearborn’s improving graduation rates, the School Improvement Process, the budget, or the District’s growing enrollment.  Cabinet members from both the instructional and non-instructional side of the school District’s operations will be on hand to assist in answering questions.

Head Lice Awareness Letter

Head Lice Parent Awareness and Prevention Letter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This letter was developed to increase head lice awareness so that you may take steps at home to help prevent your child from becoming infested with head lice.

Direct, physical head-to-head contact is the usual method of transmission. Lice do not jump or fly. They survive only for a short time away from the human head and have difficulty crawling or clinging to smooth surfaces. Lice do not survive much longer than one to two days off a human head. Check your child’s head weekly for lice and/or nits (eggs). Mature lice, which are no bigger than a sesame seed, avoid light and are hard to see. Lice eggs or “nits” are usually found close to the scalp-usually within one quarter inch. They appear as tiny whitish ovals that are “glued” to the hair shaft. They cannot easily be flicked away as dandruff can. Head lice do not transmit disease and are not a serious medical condition. They cannot survive on your pets.

Recent studies show that head lice are seldom spread in the school setting. Due to this, mass screenings at school are not recommended. If a case is suspected, the student will be assessed on a private and confidential basis.

Head lice are not considered a health risk because they do not spread disease or illness. Head lice among school children are a common frustration; however, the spread of head lice can be controlled and prevented.  If you find head lice on your child, Don’t Panic! Please notify the school and treat him/her with lice shampoo following the package instructions. A second treatment may be required in seven to ten days. Continue to examine the child and all family members for three weeks and treat only if live lice or if nits are found one quarter inch or less from the scalp. Also, teach your child how to minimize the chance of getting head lice by avoiding head-to-head contact, not sharing hats, combs, brushes, and hair accessories, and to to contain long hair in braids, ponytails, or buns.

REMEMBER: Check Regularly-Treat Quickly

The safety and well-being of your children, while at school, is always a priority for all staff members. By continuing to work together and communicate we will be able to provide the best learning environment for your child.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact your school nurse. Thank you for your help and support.

رسالة الأهالي للتوعية حول الإصابة بقمل الرأس و طرق منعه


أولياء الأمور و الأوصياء الكرام،

تم تطوير رسالته لزيادة الوعي بقمل الرأس حتى تتمكن من اتخاذ خطوات في المنزل  للمساعدة في منع إصابة الأطفال بقمل الرأس.


الاتصال المباشر والمادي من الرأس إلى الرأس هو الطريقة المعتادة لانتقال العدوى. القمل لا يقفز و لا يطير. و يبقى على قيد الحياة لفترة قصيرة وهو بعيدا عن  رأس الإنسان ويجد صعوبة في الزحف أو التمسك بالأسطح الملساء. لا يعيش القمل أطول من يوم إلى يومين خارج رأس الإنسان. تحقق من رأس طفلك أسبوعيا للقمل و / أو بيض القمل  “الصئبان”  . لا يتعدى حجم  القمل المكتمل النمو حجم بذرة السمسم ، يتجنب الضوء ويصعب رؤيته. عادة ما يوجد بيض القمل والصئبان” بالقرب من فروة الرأس ، وعادة ما تكون في حدود ربع بوصة. تظهر على شكل بيضات بيضاء صغيرة “ملتصقة” بعمود الشعرة. لا يمكن إبعادها بسهولة كقشرة الرأس. لا ينقل قمل الرأس المرض ولا يعتبر حالة طبية خطيرة. لا يصيب أو يعيش القمل على حيواناتك الأليفة.


تظهر الدراسات الحديثة أن قمل الرأس نادرًا ما ينتشر في محيط المدرسة. ونتيجة لذلك ، لا يوصى بإجراء عروض جماعية في المدرسة. إذا اشتبه في حالة ما ، سيتم تقييم الطالب على أساس خاص وسري.


لا يعتبر قمل الرأس أحد المخاطر الصحية لأنه لا ينشر المرض أو ينقلها بين الاشخاص. وجود قمل الرأس بين أطفال المدارس هو إحباط شائع ؛ ومع ذلك ، يمكن السيطرة على انتشار قمل الرأس ومنعه. إذا وجدت قمل الرأس على طفلك ، لا داعي للقلق! الرجاء إخطار المدرسة ومعالجته مع شامبو القمل باتباع التعليمات الواردة على العبوة. قد تكون هناك حاجة إلى استخدام جرعة ثانية من العلاج في فترة تتراوح بين سبعة إلى عشرة أيام. استمر في فحص الطفل وجميع أفراد العائلة لمدة ثلاثة أسابيع و قم بإستخدام العلاج  فقط عندما تكون الحشرة حية أو إذا وجدت القمل في ربع بوصة أو أقل من فروة الرأس. كذلك ، قم بتعليم طفلك كيفية تقليل فرصة الإصابة بقمل الرأس من خلال تجنب الاتصال المباشر ، و عدم مشاركة القبعات ، و أدوات تصفيف الشعر ، ، وإكسسوارات الشعر ، وابقاء الشعر الطويل على شكل الضفائر أو ذيل الحصان أو مرفوع تماماًعلى شكل كعكة.


تذكر: تفقد الشعر بانتظام – عالج الإصابة بسرعة


إن سلامة و صحة أطفالك ، في المدرسة ، هي دائماً أولوية جميع الموظفين. من خلال الاستمرار في العمل والتواصل معًا، سنتمكن من توفير أفضل بيئة تعليمية لطفلك.

إذا كان لديك أي أسئلة ، فلا تتردد في الاتصال بممرضة المدرسة. شكرا لمساعدتكم ودعمكم.
