ATTENDANCE & DRESS CODE ENFORCEMENT

Scholars are now being marked tardy if not in class before the bell rings. If scholars arrive after 7:45 A.M. for PYP or 8:45 A.M. for MYP, parents will need to park and walk the scholar into the school to be signed in at the front desk.


Dress code is also being enforced. If uniforms are on back-order, please send a copy of the receipt to the homeroom/advisory teacher.

CELL PHONE/ELECTRONIC DEVICE POLICY ENFORCEMENT

Please remember to have Dash Pass OPEN on your phone when you arrive on campus. If you have not done so already, please download Dash Pass and set it up, as this allows for a smooth and timely dismissal of your scholar.

This week we had our first practice fire drill and our first practice active assailant drill for the 2022-2023 school year!

We will continue to have practice drills monthly as the school year progresses.

HEADPHONES

ALL scholars (K-8) need to have a pair of wired/plug-in headphones at school daily, as headphones will be used throughout the school year for computer work and for testing.

These headphones need to stay in the classroom all school year.


BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES ARE NOT PERMITTED.

LOST! NEEDS TO BE FOUND!

We already have some items that need to find their owner.

Has your child lost a water bottle, lunchbox, or piece of Franklin clothing?

Please look at the photos below. If you need to claim an item, please email, call, or stop by the front office to describe the item and let us know to whom the item belongs.


PLEASE LABEL ALL ITEMS WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME!

The PTO will be working with teachers to finalize PYP room parents early next week.

The PTO is currently recruiting volunteers to become room parents for PYP classrooms. If you have free time, want to help teachers fulfill visions and classroom needs, and enjoy communicating with other families, this is the job for you!

Please note: If you are selected to be a room parent, the PTO will contact you to let you know.


The PTO encourages families to join the Parent Teacher Organization.

The PTO supports the school in several ways. Four PTO meetings are scheduled for the year; however, attendance is not required. PTO members get to choose PTO event volunteer opportunities first. Joining the PTO does not require a commitment to partici[pate in meetings or events, as some families are actively involved, while other families support the PTO and school with just the $15 annual membership fee.
