Dear Franklin Families,


Welcome to April and Spring! Administration is going to have a discipline assembly with our 5th through 8th grade students.

Carline Etiquette

For our carline in the morning, please remember our policies: Drive all the way up and stop behind the car in front of you. Students should not get out on the left side of the car, this is dangerous. No parents on cell phones in carline. There is a lull in cars coming onto campus between 7:15 AM and 7:25 AM. If you would come during that time, your student will not be late. Parents waiting and entering campus at 7:30 AM or 8:30 AM, your student will be marked tardy.

For the afternoon carline, please do not stack on Military trail. Arrive on campus at the times listed on our website and you will be allowed to enter. ALL families must have the DashPass Application. The information has been on every newsletter and can be found below. Not having this application will delay dismissal of your student and back up the carline.

Students are not permitted to walk off campus, unless they are a registered walker. The Allstate building is not a pick up area for your student. They have started to send us pictures of students loitering on their property and have stated they will call PBSO for trespassing. Please follow the policies that are in the handbook, for everyone's safety.

Course Selection Time

All students in 5th through 7th grade, please review the Curriculum Guide and elective choices for next year. We will be meeting with 5th graders and discussing 6th grade electives and meeting some of the teachers who will be teaching them. Here is the link to the curriculum guide, which can also be found on our website: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11exkSid7g-ImJtgidHSBD8poWukiRO3L/view?usp=sharing

Student COVID Policy


Please read the updated COVID student policy on our website, which was updated 2/14/2022:

https://franklin2017.s3.amazonaws.com/1/ckeditor/Student%20Policy%20re%20Covid%2019%20010222_LxKgr5NV_y.pdf


In addition, when a student is quarantining or home with COVID all classwork should be posted to the teachers Google Classroom. This work can be accessed by all students. As long as a student is able to, health wise, they should be completing their work and submitting it to the teacher. While we are not permitted to do virtual teaching at this time, a student can request the teacher have a Google Meet, when the teacher is available, to help the student with any questions they may have.

Please contact the teacher with any questions regarding the posting of work, or available times. All students should have already joined the Google Classrooms for their teachers, if not, again please speak with the teacher.


If your student tests positive for COVID-19 or was exposed to someone who tested positive, please fill out this form as soon as possible: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeszjAjkrahnu7wL6obAnuaQRaOHO2icBFx3iSQ0hOTT5JUJw/viewform


If you have not opted out of your student wearing a mask, please be sure to send them in with it. Students are asking for masks on a daily basis and it is challenging to sustain the supply at this rate.

ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS MUST WEAR A SCHOOL ID AT ALL TIMES

Every MIDDLE SCHOOL student was given a school ID and lanyard. Your student is required as part of the dress code to wear a student ID at all times. Failure to wear the school ID will result in an infraction. Three (3) infractions = an afterschool detention. If your child has lost their ID and would like to purchase a new one. Please send a check or money order for $8.00 for ID ONLY or $10.00 for ID/Lanyard payable to Franklin Academy and dropped off in the upstairs office to Ms. Lauren. Our office staff will call your student in once payment is received for their new ID. Your child will not receive an infraction if payment is submitted while waiting for ID. If payment is not submitted and they have reached 3 infractions, they will be given a new ID and we will charge the PowerSchool account for the cost.
