From The Principal

Dear Falcon Families, 

I want to share with you an adjustment we will make now to ensure we can continue to safely provide our students with an in-person learning environment.  Recently, Henry Ford II High School has had an increase in reported cases of COVID-19. Given this increase, we need to take these steps now to mitigate any potential further spread and ensure we are taking necessary actions designed to keep our students in-person. This additional action includes temporarily requiring all staff members and students in the classroom to wear a face covering, beginning January 11.   

The use of face coverings is recommended by the Macomb County Health Department to limit further potential impact to our classroom and school. This enhanced protocol will be in place temporarily through January 25. It is important that masks are worn over both the mouth and the nose, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.   

We will continue to monitor the situation. If we are not able to reduce the further spread of COVID-19, we may need to take further action by moving our school into remote learning.   

The adjustments are part of our multi-layered approach. By working together, we can keep our students in an in-person environment throughout the school year. We cannot reiterate enough the importance of self-screening each day and having your student remain at home if they do not feel well.  

The Ford Staff works very hard for our students. We realize that some students are on quarantine and worried about getting responses from their teachers regarding schoolwork. However, please remember that teachers are not going to be able to respond to students' messages immediately, especially if they receive these messages in the evening or on the weekends. They will respond as soon as they can, but it may not be until the next morning.


If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at 586-797-1600.

Go Falcons!
