Back to school district blog & reminder about VLP opt-in

Good Evening,

Our district has launched a Back to School website with more information for parents. All documents are linked on the page including protocols on hygiene, safety, cleanliness, etc.  Other helpful documents such as student, staff, and parent expectations are also available.  Arabic translation is in the same documents if you scroll down. Check it out at

Also, as a quick reminder, tomorrow (August 13th from 9 am-2 pm), we will be available at Howard for parents who want to opt-in for the Dearborn Virtual Learning Program (VLP). The link to complete this online and view all the information regarding the 100% online learning for the school year is However, it is important to ensure that this is the best program for your child before opting-in, so I encourage you to stop by tomorrow and/or give me a call if you decide to opt-in to this program for your child(ren).

Thank you,
