A Letter from the Prinicpal

September 25, 2017

Dear Parents,

As part of our ongoing effort to keep an open line of communication with our parents, I would like to take a moment to share information with you regarding an incident that occurred today in our neighborhood.

Early this afternoon, Dearborn Police notified us that there was a police situation in the vicinity of our school. As a precautionary measure the police recommended that all students remain inside and all external doors secured. Supported by Central Office staff we followed these recommendations in order to maintain a safe school environment. All students were dismissed as scheduled without incident.

I would like to be clear that at no time were any students or staff in danger. The incident in the neighborhood did not involve our school and the actions that we took were precautionary in nature.

At The Heights Campus we pride ourselves on creating a safe environment for all of our students. By working together and keeping an open line of communication we can ensure that our students, your children, will remain safe at school.

Sincerely,

Winifred L. Green, Ed.D. and Oussama Baydoun

NOTICE: School Safety Zone Enforcement

Download the Signed School Zone Safety letter  to see fines and other traffic violations police will be enforcing.

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.
