Letter from the principal

April 6, 2021

Greetings:

Beginning Tuesday, April 13th, 2021 Edsel Ford High School, and all other high schools in Michigan, will be administering the SAT, PSAT, Work Keys & M-Step assessment to all high school students.  The following is the 2021 testing schedule for all 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students.

Tuesday, April 13th – 11th Grade SAT Testing

Wednesday, April 14th- 11th Grade WorkKeys Testing AM / PSAT 9th grade PM

Thursday, April 15th- 11th Grade MSTEP AM /PSAT 10th grade PM

What are these tests for?

SAT- The SAT is an admission test accepted by all U.S. colleges through the College Board.  The College Board has programs to encourage all students to take advantage of higher education.  The State of Michigan also uses this one-time test to rank our students against other students in the State.  This measurement  determines if Edsel Ford High School has made progress in reducing gaps in achievement. These scores are reported on the student’s transcripts that universities and colleges review.  

PSAT- The PSAT test is for 9th and 10th grade students to prepare them for the SAT test which is taken during the 11th grade.  This test is a major criterion for college admissions.  This test will give students feedback on their strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study and success.  A real advantage is that when students get their PSAT scores- they can get an Individual KHAN Academy Plan- which is a customized SAT study plan based on their PSAT test performance.

Any 10th grader who is interested in the Henry Ford Collegiate Academy scholarship, must take the PSAT 10.

WorkKeys- The WorkKeys assessment measures essential workplace skills and helps focus on building career pathways.  The tests also measure students’ skills and how they stack up to what employers expect from them in the workforce. 

M-Step– The M-Step is an assessment that will be used by the State of Michigan to assess where our students rank in reference to their proficiency in science and social studies. The State of Michigan also uses this one-time test to rank our students against other students in the State and as a measurement to determine if Edsel Ford High School has made progress in reducing gaps in achievement. These scores are reported on the student’s transcripts that universities and colleges review. 

It is crucial that our students come to school prepared, on time and on task to be successful on these exams.  Moreover, it is important that our students continue to demonstrate to the entire State of Michigan that they are the finest students in the state. All students enrolled in Dearborn Schools are required to take these assessments.  The State of Michigan calls for all students to take these standardized assessments and they are a required part of state and federal accountability.  Students in our Virtual Learning Program will also be attending on the above dates.  All building staff will be reporting on these days so that we may maintain small numbers in each of our testing rooms.  For 11th graders, the assessments are part of the Michigan Merit Examinations and are a Dearborn graduation requirement. This includes SAT, Workkeys and MStep. Students should bring their own calculator for testing if possible.

Please keep in mind these key facts regarding testing

  • No cell phones or electronic devices – These items are NOT permitted in the testing rooms at any time, even if powered off.  Being in possession of these items in the test room will result in an invalidation of the test. They will not be allowed in the hallways between tests or on breaks.
  • Photo Identification – Students must show either their school ID or a driver’s license when they check in.  If they do not have an ID, let us know immediately prior to testing.
  • Timed Tests – All the tests are timed so students must be to school on time.  We encourage all students to arrive by 7:15 am or earlier on the testing days.
  • No food, drink or other unnecessary items in the test rooms – Students should plan to only bring #2 pencils and their photo ID.

Students must listen and follow all directions during testing.   Students must successfully complete all three days of testing including the M-Step test in order to receive their diploma from Dearborn Public Schools. Successfully completing means they must put forth honest effort and cannot just bubble in answers and cannot commit any testing violations.

To accommodate the testing, we will have a revised school schedule on April 13th, 14th and 15th.  Also, please see the Table on the last page as an additional piece of information.

No Further Action Notice

DATE: 4/12/21

TO: Staff, Students & Families

FROM: Mr. Casebolt

RE: COVID-19 Case Identification 

A confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at school 4/8/21. We are working closely with Wayne County Health Department to identify exposures and prevent further cases. This letter is informational only; no further action is required for you at this time.  If you have not been contacted by the district nurse or your building administrator, you are not considered to be a close-contact to the positive individual.

I want to thank all staff and students for following through social distancing measures and adhering to all other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact with anyone for 15 minutes or more. I want to also remind all staff and students that we need to respect everyone’s privacy at all times. Your safety and privacy are important to us. Again, we thank all of you for adhering to all guidelines. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are less than six feet from each other for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to fourteen days after a person is exposed. 

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever (>100.4oF), cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. 

There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free” and protect ourselves and loved ones: 

  1. Children and adults should stay home when ill. 
  2. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds. 
  3. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes must contain at least 60% alcohol. Dispose of wipes in the trash after use. 
  4. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand). 
  5. Follow guidance for wearing a face covering and social distancing. 

If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078. 

Following the guidance of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, the school has been disinfected. This includes spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer, along with other methods of disinfection.

Additional information can be found on the CDC website.

بخصوص: وجود حالة إصابة بكوفيد – ١٩ 

تم تحديد حالة إصابة مؤكدة بفيروس كورونا (كوفيد -١٩ ) في المدرسة. نحن نعمل بشكل وثيق مع إدارة الصحة بمقاطعة وين لتحديد من كانوا في تماس مباشر مع الحالة المؤكدة ومنع وقوع إصابات جديدة. إن الغرض من هذه الرسالة هو الإخطار فقط ؛ لا يلزم اتخاذ أي إجراء آخر  من قبلكم في هذا الوقت. إذا لم يتم الاتصال بك من قبل ممرضة القطاع أو مسؤول المبنى الخاص بك ، فلا تعتبروا ممن كانوا على اتصال وثيق بالشخص المصاب.

أود أن أشكر جميع الموظفين والطلاب لاتباعهم تدابير التباعد الاجتماعي والالتزام بجميع الإرشادات الأخرى ، مثل ارتداء الأقنعة في جميع الأوقات وعدم الاتصال الوثيق بأي شخص لمدة 15 دقيقة أو أكثر. أريد أيضًا أن أذكر جميع الموظفين والطلاب أننا بحاجة إلى احترام خصوصية الجميع في جميع الأوقات. سلامتكم و خصوصيتكم مهمة بالنسبة لنا. مرة أخرى ، نشكركم جميعًا على التزامكم بجميع الإرشادات.

يُعتقد أن الفيروس المسبب لـ كوفيد -١٩  ينتشر بشكل أساسي من شخص لآخر ، من خلال الرذاذ التنفسي الذي ينتج عندما يسعل الشخص المصاب أو يعطس أو يتحدث. يمكن أن تهبط هذه القطرات في أفواه أو أنوف الأشخاص القريبين أو ربما يتم استنشاقها في الرئتين. تزداد احتمالية انتشار المرض عندما يتواجد الأشخاص على مسافة تقل عن ستة أقدام من بعضهم البعض لمدة ١٥  دقيقة على الأقل. قد يعاني الشخص الذي يكون على اتصال وثيق بشخص مصاب بـ كوفيد -19 من أعراض الفيروس عادةً في فترة تتراوح بين  يومين إلى أربعة عشر يومًا من يوم التعرض.

تتشابه أعراض كوفيد -١٩  عند الأطفال والبالغين. يمكن أن تشمل الأعراض: الحمى (حرارة أعلى من ٤. ١٠٠  درجة فهرنهايت) ، والسعال ، وضيق التنفس ، والغثيان ، والقيء ، والإسهال ، وسيلان أو احتقان الأنف ، وفقدان حاسة التذوق أو الشم ، وآلام في البطن.

هناك العديد من الأشياء التي يمكن القيام بها للحفاظ على مدارسنا و منازلنا ومجتمعاتنا وحماية أنفسنا وأحبائنا “خالية من كوفيد -١٩ “:

  • يجب على الأطفال والبالغين البقاء في المنزل عند المرض.
  • غسل اليدين بالصابون والماء الدافئ الجاري لمدة 20 ثانية على الأقل بشكل دائم.
  • في حالة عدم توفر مكان لغسيل الأيدي ، استخدم معقم اليدين بشكل صحيح. يجب أن تحتوي المواد الهلامية والمطهر ومناديل اليدين على نسبة  ٦٠ ٪ على الأقل من الكحول. تخلص من المناديل المبللة في سلة المهملات بعد الاستخدام.
  • تدرب على آداب التنفس الجيدة (قم بالسعال بالكوع من الجهة الداخلية).
  • اتبع الإرشادات الخاصة بارتداء غطاء الوجه والتباعد الاجتماعي.

للاسئلة، الرجاء الاتصال بمديرية الصحة بمقاطعة وين على الرقم:  ٧٠٧٨ – ٧٢٧ ( ٧٣٤) .

اتباعاً لإرشادات خارطة طريق إعادة فتح المدارس بشكل آمن التي قررتها ولاية ميشغان سابقاَُ، تم تطهيرو تعقيم المدرسة. تضمن ذلك رش الفصول الدراسية والممرات وغرف تبديل الملابس والأماكن المشتركة الاستخدام حسب الحاجة بالمطهرات ، إلى جانب تطبيق طرق أخرى للتعقيم.

للمزيد من المعلومات الرجاء زيارة موقع مركز مكافحة و السيطرة على  الأمراض.
