News from Ms. Tornopsky
April 2022 Edition
Dear Franklin Families,
Welcome to April and Spring! Administration is going to have a discipline assembly with our 5th through 8th grade students. At this time of year, it is a good time to remind our students the expectations of our school. Please view our presentation at this link to see what we spoke about with our students:
We are also preparing for Field Day for all grades K-8! So excited to have some more fun with our entire school. More information will be coming and a flyer can be found below and on our website.
Ms. Rena Roseff-Tornopsky
Staff Member Appreciation
Please take a moment to let our staff know that you care and you see what they are doing with your student. One kind word, can really make someone's day!
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
Student COVID Policy
Please read the updated COVID student policy on our website, which was updated 2/14/2022:
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
This is the last week for 3rd grade tutoring, as they are taking the FSA the second week in April. We will continue with the other grades until the end of April.
We have a lot happening in April. Please review our calendar for all of the exciting events. McTeacher Night, Book Fair, Field Day and so much more. Bake and Take Wednesday was a huge hit this week. All you need to do is "BAKE" for the staff and earn an hour. Anyone can do this and there happen to be 8 Wednesday's left to the school year!
