Message from the AD

The following was sent 2/24/21 to the teams

Edsel Ford Freshmen and JV Boy’s Basketball Players and Parents, 

This morning I was informed by an official who worked the basketball games at Southgate on Monday, February 22 had tested positive for COVID.  The official tested positive on a rapid test and has no sign or symptoms at this time.  Working with the School Nurse, the Wayne County Health Department and Southgate High School the determination is to have both programs on pause at the moment and treat this as a presumptive positive case.  The Health Department is pausing the program until the results come back from the official’s PCR test.  If the test results come back positive then we will have to quarantine the teams and return to basketball activities on March 9th.  If the PCR test results come back negative then the pause will be lifted and team activities will resume.  We hope to have some information back from the official as soon as he is notified of his test results.  Once I am made aware of the results I will email everyone and the coaches will reach out to the players as well.  Attached is a letter explaining the close contact. 

If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to ask and I appreciate your patience on this matter.

Mr. Picano

EFHS – AD

Re: Athletics post from 2-23-21

DATE: Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

TO: Parents/Guardians of the Dearborn Unified Ice Hockey Team

FROM: Jeff Conway, Athletic Director, Dearborn High School and Robert Picano, Athletic Director, Edsel Ford High School

RE: Exposure to Positive COVID-19 Case 

The Wayne County Health Departmenthas conducted a contact investigation and identified your child as a close contact to a confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) case on the Dearborn Unified Ice Hockey Team.  There are multiple confirmed positive cases among the players and coaching staff.

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 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. 

A Wayne County Health Department representative should be contacting you to provide specific instructions and answer questions you may have. You need to begin monitoring your child for symptoms of COVID-19 by: taking your child’s temperature twice a day and watching for fever (>100.4oF), cough, and shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. If any of these symptoms develop consult with your family’s physician immediately and notify the Wayne County Health Department. 

Your child is required to: 

  • Stay home (quarantine) until 14 days after last exposure. Maintain at least 6 feet from others at all times. The last exposure was Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
  • Avoid contact with people who are at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. This includes people of any age who have cancer, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obesity, heart failure/coronary artery disease, sickle cell disease, diabetes, and are immunocompromised.
  • Ice hockey will resume organized team activities no sooner than Thursday, March 4, 2021

Continue educational instruction of your child at home as directed by the School Administrator.  Our schools are aware of this quarantine order and will assist you with instructional needs. 

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

Additional information can be found on the CDC website. More information on self-quarantine can be found here: CDC: Covid-19: When to quarantine.

Letter from the Principal

February 23, 2021

Dear Edsel Ford Parents/Guardians,

As we plan our return to school, we wanted to communicate how thrilled we will be to see all of our Thunderbirds back in the building. We appreciate all your support during this unprecedented time in education and life.  We have been working at all levels for a safe and smooth transition. Below is some important information to keep you informed on the processes and expectations we have created in order to provide the best and safest return to school! 

A Group and B Group

The purpose of the hybrid model schedule is to minimize the number of students in the classroom/building at one time.  This will allow us to socially distance and maintain a safe environment.  All students will continue to be in the same classes with the same teacher on Schoology. Students who come to school will need to bring their charged computer to follow along on Zoom and Schoology. The teacher will be instructing on Schoology to both students in the class and students at home.

To do this, half of the students will attend school each day. 

  • A Group” students with the last name A-G will come to the school on Monday and Thursday. Students in this group will Zoom in on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday according to the schedule.
  • “B” Group students with the last name H-Z will come to school on Tuesday and Friday. Students in this group will Zoom in on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday according to the schedule. 
  • On Wednesday, all students will stay home and attend classes virtually. When your child is learning from home, they will “Zoom in” from home. Wednesdays will look like remote learning – what students are doing now.

VLP Students

Students who are signed up to remain virtual for the whole year will also follow the schedule below.  Your child will attend classes virtually from home. If you did not sign up for VLP and do not plan on your student returning to the building for this year, a parent must contact the office at 313-827-1500 or email Ms.Rogula at rogulak@dearbornschools.org and let us know. 

Schedule

When we change to hybrid, the school start time is 8:00 am and dismissal is at 12:40 pm.  

Students who are learning from home, will follow the same schedule. The schedule is attached below.

Classroom Set-up

Classroom set up is designed to provide social distancing – it will be a minimum of 3ft up to 6ft.  

Bathrooms   

Students who need to use the bathroom will be given a pass. The bathrooms will be monitored for safety.  

Meal

Students will be given a snack to eat during the fifteen minute break at 10:10 am – 10:25 am. They will eat in the classroom. Students going to the MBCC and DCMST during the break will take the snack with them.  

Learning Labs

Learning labs will be available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:45-2:55. The learning labs will either be at Edsel Ford or done virtually.  Students can request extra assistance from the teacher during this time.  The teachers will also set up meetings with students to work with them.  

Family Covid Screening Process

Each morning, families are expected to take the temperature of all members of the household. If your child’s temperature is above 100.4 please keep your child at home. They can attend class virtually at home.  

Student (in building) Safety Expectations 

Masks must be worn at all times. Students will not be allowed to congregate at any time. During passing time, students are required to walk immediately to their next class. If your child is choosing to break social distancing rules, they will need to learn virtually. This is a strict and non-negotiable rule. We will open the doors to begin the day promptly at 7:50 am. Students will not be allowed in the building before that time for safety reasons.  Please make sure students dress accordingly for the weather. 

Student Materials and Chromebooks

Students must bring their charged Chromebook and supplies to school each day. Chromebooks must be fully charged at home. We do not have the capacity to charge individual Chromebooks. Chromebooks should be brought to school in a student backpack and handled with care. All water fountains at the school have been disabled. Your child is encouraged to bring a water bottle from home (a sports cap is the best option).  

Sanitizing Process

All rooms used are on a sanitation schedule. All CDC recommended material and processes are available and in motion. However, the most critical safety measures are to (1) maintain social distancing, (2) keep masks on and above the nose, and (3) hand washing.  

Student Waiting Room

If your child is at school and begins to feel ill, we have designated a room for your child to wait in until he/she is picked up. This room is supervised and closely monitored to assure safety measures are followed.  

What if your child is a close contact?

In the scenario that your child is considered a “close contact” to another person who has tested positive, you will be notified immediately and with specific instructions.  We cannot provide the names of other people involved at any time. In order to minimize any questions or concerns – please keep your child home if they are not feeling well or are running a temperature or if they have been exposed to a COVID positive person.  Your child may attend virtually that day – get all of their instruction – and have their attendance count for them by attending virtually

Here is what the schedule will look like moving forward:

The reopening schedule will go as follows:                                          

Monday, Feb 22-26th

  • All learning labs continue this week. 
  • Schools prepare for student hybrid return based on the schedule

Monday, March 1: Hybrid schedule begins Pk-12

  • Our Edsel Ford 9th grade students start in-school hybrid schedule. A group will attend Mondays and Thursdays & the B group students will attend Tuesdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays will be live online classes for all students.

  • March 4th & 5th ALL students will attend classes REMOTELY

Monday, March 8th

FROM: Scott Casebolt, Principal

RE: COVID-19 Case Identification

A positive case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at Edsel Ford High School. This individual was on school grounds on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021 . 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 staff and students for following social distancing measures and adhering to all other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact (within 6 feet) 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.
