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 factual information regarding a story that has been circulating in some parts of our community.

Earlier this week, the administration at Fordson was made aware of a hazing incident that occurred on school property. This type of behavior is unacceptable, in violation of policy, and will not be allowed at Fordson High School. Hazing is a form of bullying and can be considered harassment. The consequences for taking part in such activities can be severe and have legal implications as well.

The individuals involved in this isolated incident have been identified and appropriate disciplinary measures have been taken.

On behalf of all students and staff members at Fordson I extend our most sincere apologies to the victim of this rogue hazing incident.  I encourage all parents to please take a moment to talk with your children about the importance of treating everyone with the respect and compassion we all deserve.

Fordson is a great school with thousands of great students. By continuing to work together and keeping an open line of communications we can ensure that all of our students are safe at school and receive the very best learning experience.

Go Tractors,


Morning Announcement:

Many of you are aware of an unfortunate incident.  Please be sure that Fordson administration and District administration and Dearborn Police are fully informed and in a midst of the investigation. The superintendent issued a statement on his blog as did Fordson high school, Please refer to those blogs. Understand in all incidents we are bound by confidentiality during the investigation.   Investigations take time and everyone is entitled to due process. In order to ensure the rights of all I would like to remind everyone that we are dealing with minors and we hope that people would be sensitive to this.  Posting or commenting on this or any incident without the facts is detrimental to all.  We support all behaviors in line with the District and School Core values.  Behavior that is not aligned to our core values is not tolerated nor is it acceptable.  Again, the situation is being handled by administration and the police. Please stop by if you would like to speak to me. I am so thankful I am part of the Fordson community because when in difficult times we come together to help and support each other.

أولياء الأمور الأعزاء،

كجزء من الجهود المبذولة للحفاظ على التواصل الدائم مع أولياء الأمور، فإنني أود أن أتحدث إليكم عن بعض الأخبار المتداولة في بعض من أجزاء مجتمعنا.


في بداية هذا الإسبوع تم إخطار إدارة المدرسه بوقوع حادث إنتهاك داخل المدرسه. هذا النوع من السلوك و الخروقات للقوانين هو أمر غير مقبول و لا يسمح به في مدرسه فوردسن.  إن هذا النوع من السلوك هو شكل من أشكال التحرش ، و النتائج المترتبة على الإشتراك في سلوك كهذا قد تتضمن إجراءات قانونية صارمه.

إن الأشخاص اللذين إشتركوا في هذا الحادث قد تم تحديد هويتهم و تم إتخاذ الإجراءات التأديبية ضدهم.

بالنيابة عن جميع طلاب مدرسه فوردسن و العاملين بها، أود أن أتقدم بخالص الاعتذار و الأسف للطالب الذي وقع عليه هذا الحادث.  و إنني أُشجع جميع أولياء الأمور بأن يتحدثوا مع أبناءهم عن أهمية معاملة الآخرين بالإحترام و العطف اللذين نستحقهما.

إن مدرسة فوردسن هي مدرسة عظيمه بالآلف من أعظم الطلاب. و إن الإستمرار بالعمل سويا و المحافظه على الإتصال الدائم بيننا من شأنه أن يضمن الأمان للأبنائنا الطلاب بالمدرسه و كذلك الحصول على أفضل طرق التعليم.

شكراً لكم،

مديرة مدرسة فوردسن


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.
