We would like to extend our warmest regards and congratulations for all our fifth graders and their families. We wish you a brilliant future!!

William Ford Vaccine Clinic

William Ford Elementary will host another district COVID vaccination event on June 17.

Students, parents and community members are invited to schedule an appointment. Shots will be available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day. The second dose will be offered on July 8. The Pfizer vaccine will be offered, which can be administered to anyone age 12 or older. Anyone under the age of 18 needs a parent or guardian with them to get the shot.

Appointments can be made through the registration link

Arabic registration form

If space is available, walk-ins will also be accepted that day, but making an appointment ensures you will receive a vaccine. The vaccinations are being provided by Walmart. Those who cannot return to the school for the second dose on July 8 can get it through the Dearborn or Livonia Walmarts.

William Ford Elementary is at 14749 Alber St., next to Chase and Ford roads.

Dearborn Public Schools plans to start the new school year on Aug. 30th with students attending class in schools all day every day. Vaccination clinics are being offered for families who would like to receive a COVID vaccination before students return to daily classes in school.

June 8 is deadline to transfer into online learning for next year

Are you ready (maybe more than ready) for your child to start the new school year in full-time face-to-face classes? Us too!

If you think online only-learning is the better fit for your child and family, then we can help you with that too, but you need to act soon!

To be in online learning next year, students must transfer to the new Dearborn Public Schools Virtual K-12 School launching in the fall.  Parents need to complete the transfer paperwork by June 8.  You can start the transfer process by contacting the school secretary.  The secretary will send a link to a Google Form for a parent to sign agreeing to transferring their child. Please submit that agreement by June 8.

Not sure if Virtual K-12 is the right choice?

Attend one of our two remaining Zoom meetings on Wednesday (May 26) at noon or Tuesday (June 1) at 4 p.m.  You can also find more information on the school website at https://vk12.dearbornschools.org.

Students in Virtual K-12 will be taught live all-day, every day by Dearborn Public School teachers in a virtual classroom with other online-only students. Classes will follow Dearborn Public Schools curriculum, class times and calendar. Students who transfer to the Virtual K-12 School are committing to the program for the entire school year.
