Franklin School, Principal
Smore is an online tool which supports the creation of newsletters which can be shared electronically.
During our spring of 2016 Thoughtexchange engagement, the theme of communication was identified as an area in which Franklin could improve. To increase communication, families will receive a smore every two weeks with information about Franklin from Travis Olson, Principal.

Why the change to the lunch and recess procedure?
Example: The grade level goes to lunch at 12:05 and will have the option to the leave the lunchroom at 12:20 (15 minutes after their lunch began). Children who have not finished eating may remain in the lunchroom until they have finished their lunch. Their recess ends at 12:40 (35 minutes after the start of their lunch).
