Mr. Hall & Buddy YouTube Channel

Our beloved Mr. Hall moved to Oregon this summer and we were fortunate to keep him with use for a little bit longer. We will have a new elementary music teacher when we return Tuesday, but you can still follow Mr. Hall on his YouTube Channel!

Franklin Live and Franklin Flex Student Supplies

  • There will be NO shared supplies when students return to the classroom this year.
  • Please bring all curriculum and supplies for Franklin Live and Franklin Flex students in a plastic bin that is labelled with the student's name and homeroom teacher or MS cohort name/number.
  • The purpose of the bin is to protect student supplies and belongings from damage by the use of the Electrostatic Disinfectant product.
  • Please be sure to include extra masks, personal hand sanitizers, and disinfectant wipes for your student to use.
  • For a complete list of supplies needed for the student's return to campus please visit https://www.teacherlists.com/schools/125181-franklin-academy-palm-beach-gardens-campus

20-21 Carpool Registration

This form must be completed by EACH family participating in a carpool. A different placard will be provided to carpooling families upon registration.

Private Transportation Authorization

This form is required for any students that will be picked up by a third-party, private bus or van (not the parent/guardian or registered carpool).

Bring Your Own Device-Franklin Live and Franklin Flex

  • Students participating in Franklin Live or Franklin Flex are STRONGLY encouraged to have a device for on-campus learning.
  • All students who bring their own digital device will need a signed BYOD policy on file and will need to have their device added to the school's network by our IT department.THE BYOD Policy is attached below.
  • If you are unable to send a device with your student to school until our new devices are delivered, please note that the teacher will be able to share their screen with the in-person students via the projector and the whiteboard and therefore provide them with quality direct in-person instruction and assistance
  • Unfortunately, there will be specific tools that cannot be utilized in a “shared device” concept, such as I-Ready, which would require the student to have their own device. In these specific situations, the team will be making accommodations, either providing paper-based substitutes or delayed assignment times. For instance, if some students are working on iReady during the day, those without a computer available will work on other material during the day and will be expected to complete the iReady work at home where they hopefully have a device.
