On Thursday, December 15, beginning at 6 pm, the district will send a test phone message to all parents who have a student enrolled in the Dearborn Public Schools. The new phone messaging system is capable of sending thousands of calls in a matter of only a few minutes. The system will call the number that parents provided in the fall when they completed emergency card information for their student. Parents with more than one child enrolled in the district should only receive one call. Caller ID information will vary depending on the type of answering machine found in the home or the company providing cell phone service but most likely will show up as “Dearborn Public Schools” or “827-3000.”
The district is using TeleParent, a web-based notification system that allows for easy communication with parents, students, and staff. TeleParent allows the district to quickly and easily create custom messages and send those messages to designated groups or to the entire district. Messages can be sent in both English and Arabic. The high schools and some middle schools are already using this system to notify parents about student absences and lunch account balances. The goal is to have all schools using the system.
When schools are closed due to severe weather, if there is an emergency situation, or there is a need to remind people about a district event, the phone messaging system will be used to notify staff and parents. The district will also continue to post information on the district web-site, cable channel, facebook, twitter, and notify all local radio and television stations.
This system will provide the district with an excellent communication tool that can be used to keep parents informed about general events or, in that rare circumstance, an emergency situation.
Dear Parents, please join us on Thursday, December 15th at 8:45 in the cafeteria for our annual parent walk through. During this time you will be able to visit classrooms and observe strategies that will help you when working with your children at home. We strongly encourage your attendance and looking forward to seeing you!
Lowrey School has a proud tradition of honoring our veterans on Veterans Day. We are currently on our 81st year of celebrating this important holiday. This year the ceremony will be on Friday, November 11th at 9 A.M. It will be outside in the front by the flagpole.
Parents and the community are invited to watch this ceremony. Please join us as we honor those who fought for our country.
- If possible, please make all Doctor Appointments afterschool. Pulling students out of school and sending them back during the middle or the end of the day causes too many interruptions.
- The office WILL NOT interrupt class to notify students that items have been brought in for them. It is the student’s responsibility to check in between classes.
- The student office staff will not transfer phone calls to the classrooms while school is in session. Please leave a message on the teacher’s voicemail and they will return your call as soon as they can.
- Any student that arrives after school starts MUST have a parent sign them in.
- To ensure the safety of our students, parents MUST call the school to report an absence at 313-827-1800 before 9:00 am.
Lunch at School: Please be advised that all students receive lunch cards from school. When students are not eligible for free or reduced lunch, they charge their lunch and a bill will be sent home at a later time. If you do not wish for your child to charge lunch on their card, please make sure you send bagged lunch with them.
