VISITORS AND VOLUNTEERS IN SCHOOL
In regards to visitors or volunteers, any person entering any school building during the school day when children are present for school is required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Masks should be worn at all times when in the building, and the visitor/volunteer should limit direct contact with others and maintain social distance (6 feet or more) when able.
Visitors and volunteers who are outdoors during the school day where students are present are required to wear a mask unless they have been vaccinated. Visitors or volunteers in the building after school, in locations where students are not present, are not required to wear a mask.

NEW SPEAK UP SPEAK OUT FORM
The District has joined “Speak Up Speak Out Wisconsin” for threat or incident reporting. This takes the place of our previous “StopIt” reporting form. Click on this link to view the new form. You will notice as you start typing the name of your school, the choices for schools narrows so you can select your school. By selecting your school, this report goes to the principal or local law enforcement when needed. The video linked below gives a good overview of how “Speak Up Speak Out Wisconsin” works and is good to review with your family.
Going forward, we will have a graphic for Speak Up Speak Out Wisconsin at the bottom of each newsletter that you can click on for quick access to report incidents if needed. You can also add the Speak Up Speak Out App on your phone for quick reporting by utilizing these links: iOS | Android

KIDS CLUB ANNOUNCEMENTS
Many families are enrolled in our before and after school care through KIDS CLUB, under the Community & Recreation Department. Since Kids Club operates within Franklin Public Schools, we will be following the same masking and safety protocols as the schools. Here are some brief notes about what you can expect when dropping off or picking up your child from Kids Club:
Parents may not enter the building and we will use the same “walkie talkie” protocol that we utilized last year. More communication about this regarding how to use the walkie to call into the building will be coming to families soon.
Per the district masking protocols, children need to be masked to enter the elementary building and our staff is not able to help children put on their masks. Please see that your child is properly masked before entering the building.
MEDICATIONS FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR
If your student will require ANY (over the counter or prescription) medication for the 2021-22 school year, please fill out the Request to Administer Medication form and have it signed by your physician.
All medication can then be dropped off at school in its original container along with this form. Please feel free to drop off medication in the office starting August 23.
ATTENTION 4K & KINDERGARTEN PARENTS REGARDING BUS TRANSPORTATION HOME
If parents would like to designate a person other than themselves, they can send an email to Tricia.Geiger@franklin.k12.wi.us.
In regards to same-day notification (this should only be done for emergencies), please call First Student Busing at 414-422-2020 so they can pass along the information to the bus driver.
