In order to honor our former Superintendent Whiston for the great work that he has done in our district for the benefit of our students, I requested that all schools hold a moment of silence in his honor sometime on Friday. His funeral mass is at 1pm so that would be appropriate but it could be anytime of the day that is convenient for each school. I will be attending two funerals that day and I appreciate the outpouring of support from our Dearborn Family. It is very comforting to me, my family, and our great team/staff during this difficult time. In addition, I am asking that all buildings lower their flags to half-staff on Thursday and Friday of this week in order to honor our State Superintendent Whiston. Thank you all and wishing you all the best as we move towards the end of the week. Take care everyone.
