Parent Survey Request

A message from Mrs. Waidmann:

Hello everyone,

I am currently working to complete my master’s degree from Eastern Michigan University.  For my capstone project, I am collecting data from staff members and parents/guardians regarding their interests in participating in physical activity programs and health workshops for their own personal benefit, as well as assisting students.  The data will be collected through a short, anonymous survey.

If you are willing to provide data for my project, please complete the survey by following the link below.  The survey is eight questions long and will take approximately five minutes to complete.  The survey will be available for two weeks.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at waidmak@dearbornschools.org.

Learning Lab Update

The Learning Lab Committee, district nurses, and the district leadership team met today.  As aligned with the Learning Lab guidelines in-person Learning Labs will be inactive for all effective November 9, 2020 for an indefinite time frame.

This includes all Special Education ACT 18 labs.

The guidance provided by the Wayne County Health Department indicates undesirable trends regarding the out-Wayne County Covid positivity rate (8% as of 11/3/20), infection rate within the Dearborn community, resulting in a slight increase in the school infection cases as a result of community spread.

Please be advised that the district will continue to look at the weekly data report to return to in person learning labs .
