DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Wisconsin weather is upon us! Please make sure your son/daughter has dressed appropriately for outdoor recess. Coats and hats are necessary for the impending cold weather. However, this being Wisconsin, it can become warm and sunny by noontime. Please remind your child if they choose to remove their jacket during recess they are to be tied around their waist and not left on the playground. Thank you.

FHS SENIOR ABBY MARTIN RETURNS TO FOOD NETWORK

Many families may remember when former Pleasant View and Forest Park student Abby Martin competed on Food Network’s Kids Baking Championship Season 4 in 2018. If you missed Abby in Season 4, the series is still available to watch on Food Network or Hulu. Abby is currently a senior at Franklin High School, and is excited to announce that she has been invited back to Food Network!


This time Abby will be co-hosting a Kids Baking Championship Holiday Special with Duff Goldman. “Light Up the Holidays” will air on Sunday, November 21st at 7:00 pm CST. The holiday special will feature four fan-favorite kid bakers competing in a new challenge. Please share the news and tune in to Food Network next Sunday night to see Abby in her new role as co-host and judge!


CHANGES IN LUNCH MENU

Our FPS Food Service Department is currently experiencing a number of changes in food supply offerings due to shortages or certain items. If you have a child that has certain dietary needs or restrictions, please review the online Nutrislice menu offerings for your building more closely so you can be aware of any food items that may have been swapped. Our Food Service staff is updating the menu daily with changes and they expect regular updates and food replacements for the foreseeable future.

MASK REMINDERS

As we continue to require masks for students, please remember the following:

  • It’s a good idea to wash your child’s mask frequently, ideally daily if possible.

  • Please ensure that your child has a few masks to rotate throughout the average school week

  • Please send an extra mask in your child’s backpack in the event they need another mask

  • When choosing masks for your child, please look for masks that have 2 or more layers of breathable fabric, cover their nose and mouth, fit snugly across the sides of their face, and don’t have gaps.


If you need help with getting additional masks, please contact the school’s main office.

COUNTRY DALE LOST AND FOUND

Parent, please click on the Lost and Found link and review the items currently here. If you see an item that is your child's, ask your child to come to the NEW Lost and Found area. We have relocated the Lost and Found to the short hallway by room 6.

PLEASE READ: ATTENDANCE REMINDER


Early Dismissal, Appointments and Changes to Regular Dismissal Schedule

Students may be excused during school hours for medical and dental appointments. Any early dismissal or late arrivals should be submitted using THIS FORM. Only emergency situations should be handled over the telephone.

Parents or guardians must come into the school office to sign out their child(ren) when they leave early. Once the parent arrives, students will then be called out of the classroom. Please allow ample time for this process. These procedures are followed to provide for the safety and security of all of our students.

We strongly discourage an early dismissal at the end of the day, unless it is for an appointment that is recorded first thing in the morning on the attendance form. Taking your child out of school, even a few minutes early, is very disruptive. It also compromises the safety of all students.

FRANKLIN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS HIRING

We are hiring for Food Service Workers ($15/hour starting wage for part-time positions. Full time have been filled), Kids Club Workers (working with students before and after school), and Bus Drivers ($21/hour starting wage, other bonuses, paid training through First Student in Muskego).
