Home-Based Resources

Hazel Park Schools’ students can download learning materials from Google classrooms and the Home-Based Learning Folders below and to the right where new learning folders are updated every Wednesday morning for the following week. 

Packet Pickups are weekly on Fridays at Ford Admin for next week’s learning and again on Monday, if needed. We highly encourage packet pick up on Fridays as students will need these materials on Monday morning. These materials are for families who can not download and print them from the website. Also, if your child's teacher uses Google Classroom, they may be able to complete the work online. 

When you complete the form, you will be asked if you plan on picking up a work packet each week for the remainder of the school year. The day and time that you select for this week will be your pickup day and time until the end of the year. For example, if you choose to pick up a packet on Friday, May 1 at 10:30 a.m., then Friday at 10:30 a.m. will be the pickup day and time for the remainder of the year. You will not need to fill the form out each week. If you indicate that you will not be picking up work packets on a weekly basis, we will contact you for a follow-up call to determine if you have questions or need additional assistance.

Please check our latest District Communications for the latest pick-up letter to access the schedule. If all slots are taken and the form is no longer accepting responses, please email joan.rybinski@hazelparkschools.org. 

Following social distancing guidelines, it will be curbside pickup into your trunk. Please have your trunk open at the curb for curriculum packets to be placed inside your vehicle's trunk.  Children are prohibited at packet pick up. Please place a sign in your dashboard or taped to the window with your child or children's names and their school. This will ensure our pick-up line moves quickly and efficiently.

Packet Drop Off:  Please make sure your student’s name and school is on the front of the packet and your student’s name on every page to ensure credit and the packet is secured together.  You can drop off packets as they are completed and your student’s teachers will reach out with feedback. 

There are three options by which to turn in homework:  

  • Google Classroom
  • Scanning (CamScanner is a great free app) or photographing and emailing to your teacher
  • BLACK Packet Drop-off Bin located in front of the Ford Administration at 1620 E. Elza, Hazel Park 48030 24/7. 

While technology is an important tool for use in learning, we must continually be aware of our childrens’ use as they learn the importance of internet safety. Here are some safety social media guidelines to consider to use in your home:

  • Keep your student on a schedule as much as possible. Routines are healthy for students. 
  • Have your student work at a desk, not on their bed, so as to create a classroom atmosphere. We want to help you keep private areas, private. If you do not have a desk or a table where they can sit up to work, an open quiet place away where they can concentrate is the next best place. 
  • Make sure students are dressed appropriately and family members that walk by are dressed appropriately as well. 
  • It is HPS school policy that students can not record or take photos of online sessions. Student privacy rules prevail and your child is not privy to who has permission to have their picture on social media. 
  • Check on who your child is talking to after hours on social media, if  you allow anyone at all. Have them ask permission to use social media for communicating with friends or other adults. 

This numbering system has been used to let students and families know the order to access the information. In general, items labeled with a 1.0 or 1.1 provide a letter to families and an overview of the resources. Folders labeled with 1.2 and beyond contain the learning resources and activities.

If you have any questions regarding these materials, feel free to reach out to the principal or your child's teacher.
