STEM Middle School

Information for Absences, Pick Up & Drop Off

For the 2023-24 school year, we begin our day at 7:50 AM and end at 2:45 PM

Absences: When reporting absences, please call the office before 8:15 a.m. at 313-827-1904.  

When school is not in session, a message may be left on the auto attendant to report an absence.

Drop-Off Procedure:

The Dearborn Heights Campus entrance should be treated as a one-way street so students are not crossing in front of traffic. Please exit to Ann Arbor Trail by circling around to the second aisle and exiting with the rest of traffic, or exit out onto Warren.

All parents should pull up to the Door #1 to safely drop off and pick up students.

Please do NOT stop the car directly in front of the school. Students should not be picked up on Ann Arbor Trail.  Please pull up past the building entrance to pick up students.

Before School

Students may only enter the building before 7:45 to get breakfast in the large cafeteria. Breakfast begins at 7:30.

The rest of the students are allowed in at 7:45 and class begins at 7:50.  Student will wait for school to begin outside. On a very cold day, students will wait inside the lobby.

After School:

Dismissal is at door #1. If you are unable to arrange for transportation around 2:45, our neighbor Howe School offers Kids CLub to STEM students.

When picking up your child EARLY or dropping them off LATE, give the office a call. You MUST come to the STEM office to sign your child in or out.

The safety of your children is our highest priority. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Thank you!
