I thank you in advance for getting your children to school on time and ready to learn. I look forward to seeing all of you on opening day! Please subscribe to the Snow School blog for updated information about the school calendar and Open House, as well as school events at

We will be posting the class lists on the office windows facing Culver Street, adjacent to Door1 by 6:00 PM on Friday, September 1.

We’re looking forward to another successful school year!

If it is raining or the wind chill is less than 20 degrees: Students enter the building through the lobby (Doors 1 and 10) at 8:25am and proceed to the gym to line up with their class.

All staff will be in the lineup areas, main lobby area, and hallways to assist parents and children as needed. Class lists and signs will be posted on the main lobby windows.

Breakfast Program: Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria, 8:10-8:30am. At 8:30, students will be directed to proceed to their lineup area. Students may enter through the lobby doors (1 and 10) to get to the cafeteria.

Dismissal: For safety reasons, we ask that parents remain outside at dismissal. Students will be escorted by their teacher to their exit doors (same as entry doors). Bus riders will be escorted to the bus and Kid’s Club by specially-trained 5th grade students serving as Safety Coordinators. If you need to get your child before dismissal, you will need to sign your child out in the main office.

*If you have multiple children at Snow, please speak to your child’s teacher and/or the office and we will work together to develop an alternate plan so your children can dismiss from the same door. For safety reasons, we cannot dismiss students before the bell to pick up siblings in other areas of the school.

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.
