BACK TO SCHOOL ONLINE CHECK IN

Thank you to all of our families who have completed Online Check-In this year! We appreciate your participation and cooperation with this new process. Checking-in helps us schedule students into classes and verifies we have all the correct information for your family. If you have not checked in yet, you need to call our office as soon as possible at 414-529-8255.

FORMS DUE TO THE OFFICE

Just a reminder that if you have any forms such as your child’s birth certificate, proof of residency or immunization records that need to be turned in, feel free to stop by the office prior to the start of school to drop those off. Please call first (414) 529-8255 to ensure that a staff member is available.

MEDICATIONS FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR

If your student will require ANY (over the counter or
prescription) medication for the 20-21 school year
Please fill out the Request to Administer Medication
form found on our district website and have it signed by
your physician.

All medication can then be dropped off at school in its original container along with this form. Please feel free to drop off medication in the office starting August 24.

ALL SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS ARE UPDATED

Thank you to all of you for your patience as we set up our Virtual Option and revisit some of our normal start of the year processes like school supplies. As of today, all school supply lists are updated.


One common question right now is, "Are school supplies the same for VIRTUAL students as they are for IN-PERSON students?"

  • For 4K-5th Virtual: We have trimmed down the in-person school supply list and linked up a "Virtual" supply list to each school's supply list document.
  • For 6-12 Virtual: We have listed the general supplies needed for each grade level and advise Virtual students to connect with the teacher(s) during the first few days of school to find out what is essential to have at home in the way of school supplies.

You can find links to all school supply lists on this page here.

ATTENTION 4K & KINDERGARTEN PARENTS REGARDING BUS TRANSPORTATION HOME

4K & Kindergarten students will be picked up and dropped off with other elementary students at a designated stop. A parent or designee must assume responsibility for the child at the stop when dropped off.


If parents would like to designate a person other than themselves, they can send an email to Tricia.Geiger@franklin.k12.wi.us.


In regards to same day notification (this should only be done for emergencies), please call First Student Busing at 414-422-2020 so they can pass along the information to the bus driver.

SCHOOL SUPPLY PACK FOR THE 20-21 SCHOOL YEAR

If you ordered a School Supply Pack for the 20-21 school year, they will be ready for pick up on Wednesday, August 26th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm. We will have a drive thru pick up at the front of the Robinwood Building. Please have your student's name displayed on a piece of paper in your window and pop the back of your trunk. We will put the supplies in your car for you. If your student has chosen to do In-Person schooling at Robinwood and you would just like your supplies dropped off in the classroom, then you do not need to attend the pick up.
