Franklin Academy - Pembroke Pines (K-8) Observes Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
Franklin Academy - Pembroke Pines will observe Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Friday, February 1, 2019. This year’s theme is Workforce Development for All – dedicated to helping youth understand the force of their service: on their families, on their communities and on the world.
The National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is April 25, 2019, but due to date conflicts with the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing periods, the District will celebrate the event before the testing window on February 1, 2019. Neighboring school districts (Miami-Dade and Palm Beach) will also observe the event on February 1, 2019.
Students in grades 2 - 8 who wish to participate by joining their parent or another adult at work should complete the required Parent Authorization Form below by Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” is a District approved field trip and will not be considered an absence when a completed Parent Authorization Form is submitted by January 30, 2019.
PARENT AUTHORIZATION FORM - REQUIRED
Without a completed Parent Authorization Form submitted by January 30, 2019, school staff will record an absence for a student that does not attend school. If a parent does not report the absence via the attendance reporting email, the absence will remain unexcused. Parents and students should follow the guidelines in the current Code Book of Student Conduct Handbook concerning pre-approved absences for educational reasons.
