Henry Ford Health School and Community Wellness
Thank you for for a right turn only onto Saal Road out of the lot during arrival and dismissal.
Thank you for only parking in designated parking spots in the front lot only.
Please use the cross walk when walking students from a parking spot. The cross walk is between the two large red cones in front of the busses in the morning and between the first buss and the rest of the busses in the pm. Walking between the busses, even if the driver sees you, is very unsafe for both you and your student (s).
Students are always accompanied by an adult in the lot. This is for your safety and the safety of your children.
Also, it is very important that once the busses are leaving the lot, they are able to pull out quickly. Please do not hold spots for cars, let cars into line ahead of the busses or block busses. Thank you. Your cooperation is seen and appreciated!
Graebner's 50th Anniversary
This year we are celebrating 50 years of Graebner Dolphins! Yes, it is Graebner’s 50th Birthday and we are throwing a party to celebrate the wonderful learning and memories that have happened here at Graebner! You can expect to see much more information to come!
The date of our 50th Anniversary Celebration is May 24 from 5:30-7:30pm. So mark your calendar and spread the word to anyone you might know who attended Graebner as a child because we would love to celebrate with them!
Lastly, if you yourself went to Graebner, please reach out to me! I would love to hear from you, give you a special invitation, and get your feedback! Please be sure to tell me what your favorite Graebner memory was as a student. firstname.lastname@example.org
