Franklin Academy-Palm Beach Gardens 2017-2018

Kindergarten Kickstart

Thursday, Aug. 10th, 7:15-11:30am

5651 Hood Road

Palm Beach Gardens, FL

We understand that for our youngest students and their parents, starting school can be overwhelming. For this reason, kindergarten students get to come to school two days earlier than everyone else! Both of these days are half-days designed to give them a chance to get familiar with our campus.


Schedule:


Day 1: Thursday, August 10

Drop-off

The campus opens at 7:15 AM and school starts at 7:45 AM.

For this day only, parents are encouraged to park their cars and walk into the school with their children.


Pick-up

School ends at 11:15 am. You can start arriving as early as 11:10 am

Parents should NOT park. Instead you should follow the typical FranklinPass pick-up procedures (See instructions below). As you arrive on campus, use your FranklinPass stickers or key fobs to tell the system that you have arrived. You will then continue along the car line, remaining in your running vehicle, and we will assist your child with making their way to the appropriate car as you arrive at the loading area.


Day 2: Friday, August 11

Drop-off

The campus opens at 7:15 AM and school starts at 7:45 AM.

Parents should follow the normal FranklinPass drop-off procedures and NOT park their car. Instead, you should follow the car line and a Franklin Academy staff member will assist your child as they exit your vehicle.
