COVID screeners, quarantine information
Parents, staff and visitors, please use the COVID screening tools at the bottom of the page to determine if you or your child may have been exposed to COVID and should avoid visiting our buildings. Please note, these are not the only reasons that a child should be kept home or would be sent home. Children should always be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine before coming to school. Adults and students also should not attend if they have vomited in the last 24 hours. See our When To Keep Your Child Home document for other common ailments.

School opening information
Dearborn Public Schools met the COVID measures set by the Board of Education and restarted with hybrid learning with the first students attending on March 1.
Any decision regarding closing schools and moving back to virtual learning for the 2020-21 school year will come from Superintendent Glenn Maleyko. Closing is not tied to a specific measure. Dearborn Public Schools continues to have direct conversations with the Wayne County Health Department. At this time they do not recommend any school closures based on current data, but the district and health department continue to monitor local conditions.
