Good Afternoon Franklin Families
Students that are planning to attend these activities must have a student ID to enter without a parent. They must also abide by all schoolwide expectations and must attend school the day of the competition to attend the games. Suspended students are not allowed on property during the duration of their suspension. Any student receiving an ODR for the day will not be allowed to stay for any sporting event. All students must have a ride home and leave promptly after the games. Any disciplinary concerns during the event will be subject to disciplinary action according to the student code of conduct in addition to being banned from future after school activities and games. For all home athletic events parents can enter the building 30 minutes prior to the event. Student spectators will be allowed entrance 15 minutes prior to the event unless accompanied by an adult. There is no charge at the door; however, we do ask that all students show a student ID to enter the events.

8th Grade Course Selection for High School
8th Grade High School Course Selections
Last week the counselors from the high schools visited our 8th grade students during Science Class. As a reminder all 8th grade students need to submit their course selections in MiStar no later than Friday, February 10th. If your student does not submit his or her course selections, the high school counselors will choose classes for your student. We want all of our students to have a wonderful transition to high school so please check with them that they submitted their course selections.
Attached is information that was presented to your 8th grade student. If you have questions you can also refer to each high school counseling website:
Cold Weather Reminders
Greetings Wayne-Westland Students, Staff and Families,
This week we are seeing some of the coldest temperatures of the winter season. Tomorrow’s low will hover near 0°. We know that winter weather can take a toll on school attendance. Snow, ice and rain can make it hard to get children to school. So can illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers, earaches, etc. Here is some information that can help keep your children healthy and in school this winter.
Develop backup plans for getting your children to school. Can someone give them a ride to school if your child usually walks or stands at a bus stop?
Dress for the weather. Even a short walk in frigid weather can be dangerous. Ensure your child has a warm coat, gloves, hats and boots. Elementary students will also go out for recess if the temperatures are above 20°. Remind older children that a hoodie is not an outdoor coat.
Resources are available. If you need help with winter clothing, please contact your child’s school for assistance.
Sick children should stay home. Attendance at school is important but sick children should not be at school. Also, if your child becomes ill during the school day, have a backup plan for who can pick them up if you are not available.
If your children need to stay home for a prolonged period due to illness, talk to your child’s teacher to find out about resources and class assignments, they can do at home to keep learning once they feel well enough.
Thank you for partnering with us.
John Dignan, Ed.D.
