As the pandemic wanes, and masks are becoming optional to wear at school for next year,things are slowly returning to normal. The new academic school year will begin this year on August 28, 2023. It's important to start the new year correctly by improving attendance at the start of school. Last year, student absences contributed to most failures in the classroom. I encourage all students and parents to challenge themselves this year to attend school on a regular basis. Improve their grades, and take advantage of all the extracurricular activities during and after school. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment at Henry Ford. Anything that affects or disrupts that will not be tolerated and will be dealt with swiftly.
We will be returning to school uniforms this year and urge parents to prepare for that during the summer. The uniform will consist of black and tan pants, and white, brown, gold, or black polo-type shirts. All students will receive a school picture ID at the beginning of the year, and they will be required to have one on hand for entry to the building. The school bell schedule will be the same as last year. School will begin at 8:00 a.m. to 3:20 p.m.
I look forward to seeing everyone again and working together to make it a very special year, where excellence leads to opportunities, and a better quality of life. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
