to a new school year at Franklin!
Expectations for Middle School
Franklin Middle School is a safe place where students and staff are empowered to engage fully in the learning process and experience success together.
The method is the same for all combination locks. Practice on a padlock if you have one!
You will be allowed to go to your locker 4 times a day:
- before 1st period
- before lunch
- after lunch
- after 8th period
Some students find it helpful to have 2 string bags: one for the morning and one for the afternoon. This way all of your items are already ready to go!
It's important to stay organized and be prepared for each class, including bringing a fully-charged Chromebook to school every day. Use your class time wisely to complete your assignments. Take an active role in your education by engaging in the lessons and asking questions.
When you're feeling stuck, ask for help! All of your teachers are here to help you succeed. Let's have a great year!
Homework & Studying
Part of homework is studying. Reviewing your notes and flashcards daily will help you succeed in class and on tests.
When you're Absent
Students who are absent from school for any reason must make up the work they miss. It is your responsibility to obtain all make-up work from your teachers. Each teacher will allow at least one day for each day of absence to make up for the missed work. Do not expect to be given the remainder of the marking period to complete the work.
Cell Phones: OFF & AWAY
Cell phones and personal electronic devices (Air Pods and headphones) are expected to be powered off and away in your bookbag when you enter the building. You may store them in your backpack or locker for the day.
"Powered off" means that the phone is turned off completely and not just the screen turned off. No one should be able to message, call, Facetime, or send social media to anyone while in school. "Powered off" does not mean putting the phone on vibrate or turning the screen off.
The student portal, iCampus, is where you will find your schedule, grades, report cards, and other useful information.
Username is your Student ID #.
Password is your initials and birthday. (Uppercase First Initial, lowercase last initial)
PASSWORD Example: Bf011706
