Ensuring the safety of all students is a paramount objective of both the Dearborn Public Schools and the Dearborn Police Department. An area of common complaints and concern is traffic related issues in school zones during student drop off and pick up. Motorists often create unsafe conditions for students by blocking roadways, speeding, and improper parking. As in previous years, the Dearborn Police Department will be conducting directed traffic enforcement in the school zones. Please be careful and obey all traffic laws. This includes double parking, blocking driveways, failure to completely stop at a stop sign, failure to yield to a bus or pedestrians, disobey a school crossing guard, and other traffic infractions.
Please keep in mind:
The bus stop is for buses only
Walk children to school when possible
Drop off/pick up children a short distance away from school when possible. This alleviates traffic congestion around our schools
Once your child is out of the car and safely on the sidewalk vacate the area to make room for other parents to drop off their children.
Be mindful of school staff and crossing guards. They are there for your child’s safety.
Be a “Good Neighbor” by being mindful of residents who live near school zones.
School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”
If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools. Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years. Continue reading →
The law requires the Dearborn Public Schools to provide parents or guardians a set of legal announcements containing information on laws pertaining to students and parents. The updated version of these announcements is now available on the district website, www.dearbornschools.org. All parents and guardians are encouraged to take a moment and review the document.
