Howard Elementary School

Updated Wayne County/District Covid Guidelines

Isolation, quarantine, and close contact updates:

At the direction of the Wayne County Health Department, Dearborn Public Schools has updated its guidelines for quarantines, isolation, and close contact notifications.


Those who are quarantining or isolated due to COVID can now return as early as Day 6 under certain conditions.  Please see our new quarantine and isolation guidance for more details.


The district has also updated its COVID daily screening tool to reflect these changes. Thank you for continuing to screen your child daily!

Also at the direction of the health department, the district will no longer be tracking close contacts at school.  Moving forward, if someone with COVID is confirmed to have been at school, all the students in that class will be notified, but no quarantine will be required.  Students and staff should monitor for symptoms and continue to wear their face masks properly.


Find more details in the district’s First Bell article. As always, the latest information is posted on the district’s COVD page.

Thank you,
