National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID)
Monday, February 13th
National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) is a day for all parents to visit their children’s schools, see what their children experience daily at school, and to support their children’s educational futures. Retired educator and former principal the late Joe Dulin, created NAAPID in 1995. Mr. Dulin believed parents are among a school’s most important assets. “NAAPID is not just for black people –– it’s for all people,” Dulin says. “It comes during Black History Month, and he thought it was a tremendous time to introduce it as a project for parents to get into our schools to exchange notes, phone numbers, emails, have conversations and get in touch with the teachers.” NAAPID serves as an opportunity for all families to renew their commitment to educational success for all. ALL parents are encouraged to participate.

All visitors will be directed to ENTER through the Main Entrance Door #1. The Raptor Visitor Information System is part of the Ann Arbor Public School’s commitment to student safety. Every school in the district uses this visitor management check-in system at the main entrance greeter desk to help us keep track of who is in our schools during the school day. We ask that you present your identification, either a driver’s license or identification card, when you visit the school. The visitor management system also checks your identification against the national sex offender database. DO NOT attempt to enter the building under the arch.
