Congratulations to our students, staff, and parents!

The independent study of Mackinac Center for Public Policy ranked Becker # 2  and number 1 for long-term performance school!

As quoted by the Mackinac Center Dearborn Public Schools deserves a notable mention, as they run five of the top 10 schools on this report card and seven of the top eight conventional schools statewide. The district’s Iris Becker Elementary was also ranked the number one school based on long-term performance.”

This is only possible through the dedication of our staff and parents! Kudos to you all! Go Bearcats!

Becker Safety Procedures

Hello Becker Community,
Given the very tragic event that occurred at the High School in Florida and the fact that spring is not too far away I thought it would be a good idea to share with all of you a few thoughts on school safety.
At Becker, we practice safety drills throughout the year. This includes fire, tornado, and other emergency situations.  We also have an emergency plan in place and work with our local police and fire departments to make sure that we are prepared in the unlikely event an emergency situation should occur.
Another safety precaution we have at Becker, and at all schools in Dearborn, is a door locking system that only allows entry into the building after you have identified yourself and the door is unlocked by a Becker staff member.  This ensures that strangers are not walking into our building.  In fact, this system was used today when a man came to the door but did not have any official business at the school. Fortunately, our School Resource Officer was nearby, was able to talk with the man, and he left the property.
One of the best practices we can do to keep our school and neighborhood safe, is to always talk to your children about how to be safe on the way to and from school.  Here are a few helpful reminders:
• Never talk to a stranger.
• Never get into a car with a stranger.
• Never talk to a stranger who is looking for his/her lost pet.
• Children should walk to and from school with other children.
• Always report suspicious characters to parents, teachers and the police.
• If approached by a stranger, tell an adult.
We pride ourselves on creating a safe environment for your children.  By working together and keeping an open line of communication, we can ensure that our children will remain safe going to, coming home and attending school.

All Dearborn Public Schools will be open on Monday, February 12, 2018.

We want to thank all the hard working Engineers, Custodians, and staff members in the Operations and Grounds Department for putting in many extra hours this weekend to clear school parking lots and sidewalks.

We also want to extend a thank you to all the crews at the City of Dearborn who have been working hard all weekend to clear streets in our city.

After checking road conditions, talking with the City of Dearborn, and having discussions with our Transportation Department the District does not anticipate any wide spread problems or delays.

However, with the amount of snowfall and cold temperatures, conditions may exist on a few side streets that require slower then normal and extra cautious driving. Please be advised that these conditions may cause some buses to run a bit behind schedule on Monday.

Bundle up and see you in school on Monday!
