We will communicate an arrival date of school pictures for those families that attended Back to School Night on Thursday, August 17. Students will have these distributed by their homeroom teacher.
For those families unable to attend Back to School Night or those families needing re-takes we will have HR Imaging back at Franklin on Tuesday, September 12. See the instructions below:

2017-18 Building Schedules
Important Need to Knows
What are A/B Fridays?
On Fridays, students’ Exploratories (PE, Vocal, Band, Orchestra) alternate every week. This is to ensure that all classes meet equally. Classes that meet on Monday & Wednesday are considered their “A” class and Tuesday & Thursday are “B”.
When do students hear school announcements?
We have announcements at the beginning and end of the day. Announcements often include events for the day/week, recaps from activities, birthdays, and other important school-related information. Many of these same items are shown on our video screens around the building. We ask our students to be proactive when making arrangements to come in before or after school.
How can I get messages to my child?
Parents are allowed to leave messages for students. This can be done by contacting the Main Office or Attendance Office. With that said, we try to limit the amount of disruptions during the school day. All calls over the intercom are only made during morning and afternoon announcements. We would appreciate as much advanced notice as possible. It often proves challenging getting a message to a student immediately or when a parent is out front and calls for their child to be dismissed. We would appreciate as much notice as possible.

Where to Drop Off & Pick Up?
*** VERY IMPORTANT ***
For the safety of our students and staff we encourage you to carefully read through the map below. The cooperation and patience of all our families is essential as we orchestrate the hustle and bustle of the morning and afternoon.
We encourage families to plan ahead for a designated drop off and pick up location. The front of the building (20th Street) is a very busy street before and after school. There are better alternatives for families that are less congested. We encourage you to consult your summer mailings with a flyer for locations. You can also see the picture below.
