Updates for Week of Sept 8th -18th

Dear Edsel Ford Families,

So it has been a very busy week on the front lines and behind the scenes at Edsel.  We gave out a lot of technology, books, and information during our 4 grade level pickups.  The admin team and staff continue to work hard at learning Schoology and Zoom.  Teachers are building their live lessons as we speak to prepare for the launch of live instruction next week. We wanted to give you some information on what to expect for next 2 weeks Tuesday, 9/8 thru Friday, 9/18.  We thank you and ask you for your continued patience and support as our teachers begin their live instruction using Schoology and Zoom.

Starting September 8th, we are planning for teachers to hold live instruction through the Zoom platform. Students should plan on being live (virtually) every day from 12:00-3:10 pm as attendance will be taken and the audit policy applies.  If students accumulate a certain number of absences- they will lose credit for that course.

Here is the schedule for asynchronous learning assignments and the synchronous “live” instruction calendar from Tuesday, Sept. 8th thru Friday, Sept 18th:

  • These Asynchronous modules will be uploaded to the EFHS Back to School course in Schoology
  • All EF students will be enrolled and assigned the modules with corresponding due dates

In an effort to streamline important information, we’ve attached five links for your convenience. We’ve also attached the district’s expectations for all students.

Parents please note: The district has worked hard to make sure that students and teachers have what they need in order to hold live instruction starting on Sept. 8th for Edsel Ford.  After that connection has been made – the district will connect parents to the platform and provide detailed information and steps on how parents can maximize their understanding and usage of the Schoology platform.

Finally,  the 9th Grade Edsel team is working on a virtual Open House/Orientation.  Date and time will be announced soon.

Thank you,

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SCHOOLOGY and Chromebooks

Dear Students and Parents: VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SCHOOLOGY and Chromebooks

We have been informed that the district has successfully transferred MiStar information to Schoology. The district has informed us that Schoology will be available for students Monday morning. They will sign in using Google (Dearborn Account)
To sign into a Chromebook, students use their district credentials: – User Name = Student Number- Password = whatever they set it as last year, we did NOT change any passwords. New students will have their passwords set to their birthday (MMDDYYYY) as per MiStar.
Students can access Schoology from the Student Portal on the district web site (Staff can use the Staff Portal). *Students using district issued Chromebooks will have two tabs open upon start up, the district student portal page AND the Schoology page.We will continue to provide updates as soon as they are made available to us.  Students please remember to complete your daily assignments as explained in the previous update.

Dearborn to continue free weekly meal pickup, but student information will be required

With the start of school online, Dearborn Public Schools will continue its distribution of free weekly meals.  However, the program will have a few changes, most notably that the adults picking up the meals will now need to provide information for the Dearborn student receiving the food.
The district has distributed more than 1.2 million meals since the school closure in March.

Dearborn Schools schedules town hall meeting to discuss how returning to school online will look

https://firstbell.dearbornschools.org/2020/08/25/dearborn-schools-schedules-town-hall-meeting-to-discuss-how-returning-to-school-online-will-look/

Dearborn Public Schools is inviting parents and the public to learn more about how starting the school year online will look during a special virtual town hall meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 6 p.m.

Viewers can tune in to the meeting via the district’s Facebook pageYouTube Channel or on its cable television channel.

Among the topics to be discussed are an overview of what technology the district will be using, how the student’s daily schedule will look, how services will be provided to special needs students, COVID-related cleaning procedures, how COVID-19 cases in students and staff will be handled, and other frequently asked questions. Questions can also be submitted during the event via Facebook or through an online form at http://bit.ly/DbnTownHall8-26-20.

“We know opening school this year online is like no other return-to-school our community has experienced.  That is generating a lot of questions and some anxiety for parents and students, and we hope to use this forum to answer as many of those questions as we can and in turn calm their fears,” said Superintendent Glenn Maleyko.

Dr. Maleyko will be joined at the town hall by other staff, including representatives from administration, school nurses, and the operations and technology departments. Those speakers will help answer the most pressing questions in the community.  The district has published some of the information on its Back to School website.

Dearborn Public Schools is starting the school year with online classes until at least Oct. 1.  The Board of Education will reevaluate conditions in September to decide if the district can start bringing more students back to the schools. During online learning, the district will also offer learning labs, which are small group face-to-face sessions for  students recommended by their teachers.

To ease families into the new online learning method, the first week of school will be half days for students.  School starts Monday, Aug. 31. Teachers will use the afternoons that week for additional professional development.  Many schools will also use that first week to hold events to distribute class materials to students.

“We ask parents for their patience and understanding that this system of educating students is new to us, too. We know there will probably be hiccups as we bring more than 20,000 students back to class in a way that has never been done before in Dearborn.  The first week will be a phase-in period for all of us,” Dr. Maleyko said.  “While we still hope to return most of our students to in-person learning this year, in the meantime we are carefully planning and working to make the most of online learning across the district.”
