Online Etiquette for Parents

Let’s face it, as great as Dearborn Public School parents are, for the most part, they were not spending
their days in the classrooms at our schools before last year.
But then COVD-19 dumped those classrooms into your house and now everyone is navigating this new
method of delivering education. To help parents and students with online learning, we have compiled
some etiquette tips for parents. We know that most families follow good protocols, but hopefully this
will help if some clarification is needed. We thank you in advance for that cooperation.
Parents
Please make sure students are prepared and participating. Ensure supplies and materials are ready,
and computers are charged or plugged in. Please make sure students log in on time. If you want your
child to get the most out of class, insist they turn on their camera even if the teacher does not require it.
Remember teachers are there to teach your child. Teachers are managing their class and providing
instruction directed to your child. Please do not interrupt class with your questions or concerns. Those
are best emailed to the teacher.
Be respectful. Teachers have had a difficult year too, and are working hard to make the best of a
situation they never expected to be in. Be patient and courteous. If you have concerns, please politely
bring those to the teacher outside of class time through email. Inappropriate language and demeaning or
aggressive behavior are not permitted.
Don’t hover. Allow your child to interact with the teacher and do their own homework and
assessments. We always encourage parents to be involved and support their children in their learning,
but to learn and develop independence, each child needs to be engaged and doing his or her own work.
(Obviously our youngest students probably need more help from the adults at home.)
Watch the background. Be aware that, depending on how your child’s camera and microphone are set
up, the behavior of you and others could be transmitted to the entire class. Be mindful of how you are
dressed, the language being used, and other such matters.
Technology issues. Issues with technology will happen from time to time for a variety of reasons.
Please be patient when issues occur. For technical questions about your Chromebook, Schoology or
Zoom, please contact our parent and student tech support at parenthelp@dearbornschools.org or 313-
827-8400.
Thank you for all your help! Together, we will make the best of this difficult year.

Schoology

Dear Parents/Guardians,

PSAT/SAT Fall testing

DATE: 09/10/2020

SUBJECT: Fall  PSAT and SAT Testing

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Because of the shutdown last spring high school students were unable to take the PSAT and SAT assessments.  To give students an opportunity to get exposure to these exams the state of Michigan is providing the PSAT, PSAT/NMSQT and SAT assessments free of charge for all of our high school students this fall.  We will not require students to take these exams.  However, students can voluntarily elect to take the exams on the following dates:  

9th Grade PSAT 8/9:  October 27th 

10th Grade PSAT/NMSQT: October 29th

11th Grade PSAT/NMSQT: October 29th

12th Grade SAT with Essay: October 14th

Any 11th grade student hoping to qualify for the collegiate academy must take the PSAT/NMSQT exam, as these scores are used to determine eligibility. 

Each high school will provide a registration link to sign up for these exams.  Students will need to submit their request by September 14th.  

These exams will be administered in person at the students high school on these dates.  

Student safety and health is our top priority.  Students must wear a mask.  We will stagger the arrival times of students and practice social distancing along with other safety measures.  All testing rooms will have a small number of students.  We will send you the exact times of the test once we have determined how many students will be taking the exams.  

We would like to encourage your child to take these exams.  When students receive their scores they can link them to Khan Academy to get personalized SAT practice.  This has been shown to increase student’s SAT scores.  Details can be found at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/practice/khan-academy.  

Juniors that take the PSAT/NMSQT test can qualify for scholarships and other recognition programs.  More information can be found at

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/scholarships-and-recognition/recognition-programs

If you have any questions about the exams please contact your school’s counselor.

Welcome Back Students and Parents

August 28, 2020

WELCOME BACK STUDENTS AND PARENTS

We are more than excited to have you back for another adventure and unpredictable journey through our 2020 – 2021 school year.  The Dearborn Heights teachers and administrators are working hard to get ready for this unprecedented school year.

We understand that unknowns create a great deal of anxiety and stress for our students and families, but we want to assure you that we are here to guide you through any difficult process or bumps in the road. We ask that you remain patient and work with us as we all navigate through the first week of school. Our plan is to introduce you to our new platform of learning and communication through Schoology. This is also new to us and we have been working diligently to learn all that we can before the first day of school. 

Our commitment is to review and teach expectations, to establish norms, to explain schedules for virtual learning, and to introduce our new learning platform (Schoology) in the first week or two of school.  We are absolutely committed to making this year a positive journey; regardless if we are face-to-face or online. We appreciate every student and recognize every parent’s vote of confidence in having us care for their child. We do not take this responsibility lightly. Our hope is that you will communicate with your teachers as we roll into the school year. We anticipate some difficulties and/or challenges and know that we will be available within the structure of the school day to address any concerns you may have. 

Welcome back and we can not wait to see you all!

Dr. Winifred Green – Principal                                 Mr. Oussama Baydoun – Assistant Principal
