Edsel Ford High School

New school start and end times announced for fall 2021

As Dearborn Public Schools plans to return students to full time in-school learning in the fall, start and end times for students at all grade levels will change to our new normal.

Classes at Fordson, Dearborn High and Edsel Ford high schools and STEM Middle School will start at 7:50 a.m. and run until 2:45 p.m., with half days ending at 10:55 a.m. First bell allowing students into the building will be at 7:40 a.m.  

Middle schools and kindergarten to 8th grade schools will start at 8:25 a.m. and go until 3:20 p.m., with half days ending at 11:30 a.m. This includes Lowrey School, McCollough Elementary, Salina Elementary and Salina Intermediate. The first bell allowing middle school students into the building will be at 8:15 a.m.

Elementary schools will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3:55 p.m., with half days ending at 12:05 p.m. The first bell allowing students into the building will be at 8:55 a.m.

The other high schools and high school programs – Henry Ford Early College (all programs); Michael Berry Career Center; Magnet High School; and the Dearborn Center for Math, Science and Technology will run from 8:05 a.m. to 2:25 p.m. each day with half days ending at 10:45 a.m. 

Tentative plans for our new Dearborn Public Schools Virtual K-12 call for each grade to follow the schedule for that building level – kindergarten to fifth at elementary times, sixth to eighth grade at middle school times, and ninth grade and higher at high school times.  Staffing for the program is still being worked out, which could impact the schedule.

For the 2020-21 school year, the district adopted shorter school days while students continued learning at least partially online. The shorter days also meant later start times for middle and high school students. Continue Reading Here:
