Weather Emergency Procedure

All students’ homes will be called using Connect-Ed, an automated calling system, if we close or delay school. You could also listen to local radio and TV stations when inclement weather is predicted. All school closings, for any reason, will be reported to the local radio and television stations, as well as posted on the township Facebook page and Twitter as soon as the decision has been made by the superintendent of schools. Please do not call the school unless it is an emergency. Decisions of this nature are not made at the building level. Only the superintendent has the authority to close schools for a regularly scheduled school day. The superintendent may also decide to delay school for one or two hours instead of canceling the entire day. This information will also be reported over local radio and TV stations, as well as on the township Facebook page and Twitter. Please remember that we are FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY SCHOOLS CORPORATION (FTCSC) and NOT Franklin Community Schools in Franklin, IN. Every Franklin Township family should prepare plans for school delays, closing or early closing of school due to an emergency. Working parents should make the necessary arrangements for the welfare of their children in the event that any of these scenarios would occur. The early closing plans should be documented on the Emergency Release Form filled out at registration. If you do not wish to receive Connect-Ed messages, you may notify the school district by calling 317-862-2411. It may take up to five business days to process the request.

Thank you!

603 Christmas Veteran cards made by students were collected from the different elementary schools. They were delivered by Mrs. Hardcastle to 4 different American Legions located on Meridian and Stop 11, Greenwood, and 2 in Speedway. They were very appreciative to be receiving cards to hand out to their members.
