• Welcome back Pasteur family. We are very excited to have you back!


    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    We at Pasteur Elementary School hope that you and your child(ren) are enjoying a safe and fun summer. As we look forward to the 2021-2022 school year, we thought it important to share some important dates and expectations for the new year.

    The first day of school for students is Tuesday, September 7, 2021. Our doors will open at 8:30 a.m. and dismissal is at 3:40 p.m. The first day of school is a full day of school; breakfast and lunch will be served.

     Our plans for the new school year include following Federal, State, and Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations regarding COVID-19. This means practicing social distancing (classrooms, halls, during entry and dismissal, auditorium), daily symptom checks, wearing masks, frequent handwashing, use of hand sanitizer, and regular cleaning and disinfecting. The following are more highlights about how we will practice the guidelines provided for schools:

    • Smaller class sizes
    • Family members and visitors receive assistance at the security desk
    • COVID symptom checklist and temperature check for all students, staff, parents, and visitors
    • Arrival and dismissal door assignments by grade level

    Supplies: Mike Morse Law Firm will supply backpacks for students and the school will supply notebooks, folders, lined paper, pencils, and a pencil box to begin the school year. We hope this helps ease the expense of back-to-school shopping for your youngster(s).

    Attendance: It is important that every child attends school on time each day of the week for the full day to receive the best education. We want to see every student master grade level standards in preparation for the next grade and as a foundation for college and/or a career.

    Teacher & Room Assignments: Students will receive classroom and teacher assignments on the first day of school. Each classroom will have a class list and staff will assist students with directions to the correct room.

    Teacher Contact: Teachers will send letters home with students that include their contact information and the days and times they are available to meet with parents by phone, in person, or online during the first few days of school. Please contact your child’s teacher to schedule an appointment as needed.

    Loaner Devices: Please return loaner laptops for updates and repairs. Each classroom will receive new laptops for use at school.

    We are excited about returning in person with our students and we are looking forward to helping them soar academically and socially. On behalf of everyone at Pasteur Elementary School, thank you for choosing us as your child’s educational foundation.

    If you have any questions or need our assistance, please call us at (313) 494-7314 and remember to check our website, detroitk12.org/Pasteur, and our Facebook and Twitter accounts for the latest happenings at Pasteur.

    Educationally yours,
