Absence Notification Procedure

We will be using Absence Reporting form, also found on the FHS website, to report all attendance related notifications (full day absence, early dismissal, or late arrival). This form will require you to enter your child's six-digit student number and date of birth. Student specific medical information collected by the form will remain confidential and only be shared within the health and nursing services team.

Early Dismissals

Parents/guardians that will be picking up your student during the school day need to complete the Absence Reporting form (also found on the FHS website). If a student is aware that they will be leaving school early, they can stop by the desk of Lisa Schneider, the Attendance Secretary in the main office, to pick up a dismissal pass before school.

Visitors & Volunteers

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.

Open House Is Now Sept 9th!

Open House was originally scheduled on the calendar and in previous district communications for Sept 15 but we have moved it to THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th from 5:45 - 8pm. Meet teachers and learn about school community organizations (booster clubs, etc). Mark your calendars!

From 5:15-5:45 some of our parent booster groups will be sharing information from exhibits/tables located in the Saber Center Lobby.

AP Exam Ordering

All AP students should have received the two-page electronic handout found here in their AP courses. Please read this document carefully for details, including the exam schedule on the second page. All AP Students should also join the FHS AP Students Google Classroom with the code given to them from teachers or found on the PDF handout. A brief informational video can also be found here regarding the My AP site and exam ordering procedures.

Students must log-in to their My AP Account (, join the appropriate course section (or exam-only section, if applicable) with the join code given to them by their AP teacher(s), and MUST opt-in to ordering each exam, if they wish to do so, in My AP for each class. Each exam costs $96 (AP Seminar and AP Research are $144). Fee waivers are available for students with demonstrated financial need (see Student Services for a request form). Students who may need accommodations on AP exams per an IEP or 504 Plan should see Mr. Decker in Student Services this fall. All exam orders online on My AP and payment submissions in Student Services (exact cash or check made out to Franklin High School with student name and AP exam name[s] in memo line) are due by 3 p.m. on Friday, September 24, 2021. Note that the College Board's $40 exam cancellation and/or late order fee is back for this school year. Please see Mrs. Oost or Mrs. Bednar in Student Services if you have questions at any time. We wish you the best in your AP classes this year!
