Oakman’s Free Library is Here

Have you heard the exciting news? Two free library boxes have been installed outside our Oakman building. These library boxes promote the idea of sharing our love for reading and books. You do not need to leave a book in order to take one, however the general idea is to give a book and take a book to enjoy at home. Please be sure to check it out any day of the week!

We want to extend a special thank you to Mrs. Amged, Mrs. Fadia (CIS) and all the donors who contributed to making this library box a special part of our Oakman community.

Free library box outside of door 1
2nd library box outside door 2
Library box outside the building will be filled with books to share

Return to School on Monday

Just a quick reminder that all Dearborn Public Schools will be returning to our Hybrid schedule starting on Monday, April 12, 2021. This is the schedule that was being followed prior to Spring Break. 

Also, high schools will be taking part in State testing next week. Information has been shared with students but please check with your child’s school for details or if there are any questions. 

For students 16 and older, there are still appointments available on April 16th at DMC to get your COVID-19 vaccination. This is a special partnership between the District and DMC. For more information on how to sign up please visit: https://firstbell.dearbornschools.org/2021/03/31/district-dmc-offering-covid-vaccines-to-older-students-and-their-parents/

Please remember that we must continue to Mask UP, social distance, wash hands, and avoid large gatherings. The vaccine offers us hope that our fight against COVID 19 will come to an end but we have a long way to go. Working together we can do this!  

Thank you 

No food distribution over Spring Break

Dearborn Public Schools will not be distributing free student meals on March 31.  Students and most staff are on spring break that week, and schools will be closed.

Families who use the free meal program are encouraged to make sure they stop by a pickup on Wednesday, March 24, to get food for their students.

The district distributes food on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the weeks that students are in school.

Pickup is available at Bryant Middle, Dearborn High, Edsel Ford High, Fordson High, Lowrey, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, Smith Middle, Stout Middle, and Woodworth Middle schools. 

Family members can pick up a bag or box containing a week’s worth of food for any Dearborn Public Schools student or sibling younger than 18 in the household.  No ID is required, and the student does not need to attend that building or come with the adult picking up the food.

Dearborn Public Schools has been distributing free meals since shortly after the schools were forced to close in March 2020.  Recently, we have been distributing more than 100,000 meals a week.  The district has distributed more than 3.6 million free meals since the initial shut down.
