Unis Update: Code of Conduct & Concussion Forms

Code of Conducts regarding Dearborn Public School’s policy on weapons and Concussion Forms were sent home today. It is expected that all students and parents discuss the content of the Code of Conduct together and both sign the forms. Parents should also sign the Concussion Information form. Both forms should be returned to school, filled out, as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance for your help in getting 100% of the forms back!
